“Thank you for the best little getaway,” the 50-year-old captioned a photo kissing the country star, 43. We’re sure some time off together did them good, especially since the couple has been working hard on season 17 of The Voice, which premiered on September 24. While these love birds can’t get enough of each other now, believe it or not, there was a time when Gwen had no idea Blake existed. It wasn’t until 2014 when she met him on the set of The Voice that she learned who he was.
During an interview on Sirius XM’s Radio Andy on September 23, Gwen revealed to host Andy Cohen that thanks to Blake, she now knows about country music. However, before she met him, she didn’t even know about him or the genre. “Now, it’s normal because we’re together and I’ve learned about country and I’ve accepted that he’s a true hillbilly and all those things, but I can’t imagine like before … I didn’t even know he existed before the show,” the “Hollaback Girl” crooner said at the time.
“I didn’t even know he was a human being on this planet,” she continued. “I didn’t know much about country. Although my parents listened to bluegrass growing up, but that’s not country — I’ve learned that. I’ve listened to Emmylou Harris but that’s not the same. He’s literally a country jukebox. He knows every single song forever. He’s incredible like that. I just love that we’re from different genres.”
Gwen and Blake will soon be celebrating their fourth anniversary together. They became official in November 2015 — months after Gwen filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale, whom she was with for nearly 20 years. Meanwhile, in the same year, Blake and Miranda Lambert got divorced after nearly a decade together.
It’s clear Gwen and Blake are going strong. They regularly go on dates, which helps keep the spark alive. “[They] are in a great place and act like loved-up teenagers, it’s so cute! Their nights out together really help keep the relationship alive,” an insider exclusively divulged to Life & Style in April. We sure it helps that they see each other on The Voice — even if things get a little competitive!
