The power ballad, written by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, has Shelton singing of how he doesn’t want to look back in 30 years and find out who Stefani gets married to. “When you love someone they say set ‘em free/ But that ain’t gonna work for me,” the couple sing.
In the three-minute clip, the couple is seen hanging by the ocean and on the couch, enjoying a laidback dinner, sharing the stage together, and driving in the country. “Nobody But You” is featured on Shelton’s latest album God’s Country: Fully Loaded and is the couple’s third collaboration together. In 2016, the pair duetted on “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” and followed suit in 2017 with feel-good holiday track “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.”
“I was at The Voice compound and Shane McAnally is on Songland, so they were there doing some cross-promotion. Shane came to my trailer and said, ‘Man, I got a song for you,’” Shelton said in a statement. “I knew he had Gwen’s number from a write, so I told him to send it to her as I was being called to set. I actually got the song twice because my producer Scott Hendricks emailed it to me right after.
“Then one day I was driving with Gwen and I said, ‘Hey let’s listen to that song from Shane, because Scott sent it to me too – it must be pretty incredible.’ When I heard it, I was just floored. I realized how important that song was for me and where I am in my life right now. I just think it’s magical. I literally think it’s important of a song as I’ve ever recorded.”
Shelton and Stefani will share the stage at the Grammy Awards on Jan. 26.
