Watch Gwen Stefani Make Her Grand Ole Opry Debut Alongside Blake Shelton

After topping the Billboard Country Airplay chart for the past two weeks with her duet with Blake Shelton, “Nobody But You,” Gwen Stefani made her Grand Ole Opry debut on May 9.

Blake and Gwen performed their No. 1 hit via a remote broadcast performance from Blake’s farm in Oklahoma, while Dustin Lynch and Trace Adkins performed onstage at the Grand Ole Opry House. The Opry registered its 4,923rd consecutive Saturday night broadcast on May 9.

“Nobody But You” is Blake’s 27th No. 1 hit on the country chart. Gwen notched her first No. 1 on the country chart after more than 25 years as a star—both as a solo artist and fronting No Doubt—on the pop charts.

Penned by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, “Nobody But You” is one of four new tracks on Blake’s 2019 album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
