During an interview on TODAY With Hoda & Jenna on Wednesday (March 31), Shelton chatted with host Hoda Kotb about the all-star couple’s tentative wedding plans after they got engaged in October. The Voice coach isn’t trying to wait until next fall to tie the knot when the NBC singing competition series returns for season 21, with Ariana Grande replacing Nick Jonas as one of the new coaches (which Shelton is “excited” about since he’s a “fan of hers” but he still plans to “beat the crap out of her on the show”).
“I’m afraid if she and I wait till next November, then I’m right back into The Voice. And I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after, so hopefully this summer,” he said. “I think we’re right here at the point with COVID, it looks like it may be OK, but I don’t know. But that’s tentatively the plan.”
The country singer still isn’t sure about the details, including the wedding band. He’s gotten a few solid offers from Miley Cyrus and Adam Levine, the latter of whom recently said he “would love” to do the honors even though Shelton had already tossed Levine’s name in the hat last winter — without actually asking the former Voice coach.
“It’s starting to sound like a Coachella lineup here all of a sudden,” Shelton joked with Kotb. “I got all these superstars saying they’re going to do it. … We really don’t know, and I’d love to be able to take everybody up on their offer and have this amazing concert wedding.”
Sounds like Shelton and Stefani’s Coachella-esque wedding has a much higher chance of happening than the actual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which was canceled ahead of its April 2021 scheduled dates.
