Blake Shelton Talks Wedding Proposal with Bobby Bones
You can hear The Bobby Bones Show here on Kickin' 100.5 weekday mornings from 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM. The best part of this national show is you can hear from country stars that other stations might not hear from on a daily basis. Take for instance this morning, when Bobby had on country Mega Star Blake Shelton. Here's what went down.
Despite the craziness of 2020 due to the pandemic, Blake Shelton has been able to keep himself plenty busy. He virtually came on The Bobby Bones Show to talk with Bobby Bones about the finale of The Voice, his time as People's Sexiest Man Alive, producing Hallmark Christmas Movies, and of course, his engagement and proposal to Gwen Stefani.
The Voice finale Part 1 happens tonight. Shelton shared what things have been like on set since going back to work amid the pandemic. He said that the "trailer business" is gone. All of the judges on the show actually just have tiny rooms within one studio where they get prepared for each day's filming. He shared that at this point in the season, he has more responsibilities with helping his artists rather than days when they're filming Blind Auditions. He confessed that he doesn't really get nervous for the show, but he does get nervous for the artists on his team. Their filming has been happening in Los Angeles and confessed he doesn't really have a social life while he's out there. He said they get done filming at 10 pm and he's driving home after the state's curfew due to the pandemic.
People's Sexiest Man Alive list is always one of the hottest lists to come out each year, especially for everyone to see who was chosen as the Sexiest Man Alive. Blake Shelton was one of those chosen in 2017 and to this day faces criticism from trolls on social media. He shared that the year he was chosen, People Magazine believed the nation need a little comic relief, but instead of laughing when Shelton was chosen, they just got angry. In regard to all of the negative online feedback, Shelton said, "What's concerning is that any grown human being would spend their life being concerned that I was named."
As for his personal life, Shelton shared some new details from his proposal to the artist and fellow The Voice coach Gwen Stefani. Shelton shared that he never wanted their proposal to be private and away from all of their loved ones. He said he always knew he wanted to do it in Oklahoma with both of their families present, especially her kids. He added that her kids being there felt very important. Shelton reached out to Stefani's favorite jeweler that she always uses in California for the engagement ring. He said that the ring did end up being a little big on Stefani, but it ended up being a good thing because he was concerned about it being "too small [...] not fitting on her finger." Though the most interesting detail Shelton shared was where he kept the engagement ring and for how long. He said he had the ring for about 2.5 weeks ahead of the proposal. He kept it in the compartment of the door of his truck. He was worried every single day that the ring would fall out, however, he had it in there for a reason. He kept waiting for the right moment to do the proposal and always wanted to have it on hand for when the special occasion presented itself.
