It turns out, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani really are that cute together. Former Voice contestant Cassadee Pope exclusively dished to Life & Style that the couple has obvious chemistry between them. The season 3 winner had a lot of sweet things to say about her former coach and his lady love.
“I can see the attraction because she’s Gwen Stefani, and Blake is Blake … They’re both great people,” the 29-year-old confessed during the Tortuga Music Festival that featured the unveiling of the brand new Nissan Versa 2020.
Although they’ve only met once, the singer also confirmed that the No Doubt vocalist, 49, is super genuine and nice. Cassadee explained, “I got to see her backstage at his Bridgestone show [in Nashville] like two or three years ago and she was just so lovely.” She added, “She was just really sweet to take time to sit and talk with me for a while.”
As far as her relationship with her former coach, 42, Cassadee revealed that they “don’t really work together that much” but he’s rooting her on from afar. She said, “I mean he’s still so supportive … I had my album release party at Ole Red in Nashville and he tweeted that out and spread the word. So that’s huge in itself.” The country crooner was sure to note, “He’s super sweet.”
The “Take You Home” singer has so much gratitude for Blake and the opportunity that the competition show gave her. “The Voice really gave me the confidence to step out on my own and continue to do that and it brought me to Nashville,” she raved about her experience. “After the show was over, that was an amazing platform to be able to go to Nashville and say, ‘I’ve won The Voice.’ My finale song was a Faith Hill song so I was already going that country route so I had the voice to go to Nashville.” The starlet belted out a rendition of “Cry” back in 2012 that secured her victory.
Keep singing, girl!
