Gwen has confirmed that the rumored country song that her and Blake had been writing together is not happening. When asked if they were working on a “county ballad”, Gwen flat out said “No!” in an interview with 103.7 KVIL, which airs this Monday afternoon. She also says, “He’s not writing on my record.”
Gwen also confronted the stories about how her “rep” came forward and announced that her and Blake Shelton were now dating. Though it has been pretty much confirmed, Gwen stresses that she would never make an “announcement” about her relationship status like that saying, “We didn’t! Like, somebody did. That’s what’s so crazy like, who announces that? Why would I do that?” She also joked saying she prefers southern men (verses British men) and calls Blake “a pretty rad guy.”
After the announcement of their relationship status yesterday, People is now reporting that Gwen and Blake Shelton wrote a “country ballad together”. Zap2It is also reporting that the song is a “mid-tempo ballad” and is about “telling a lover to leave the relationship if that is what they truly want” (hmm…). An “industry insider” says of the track, “…itâ€™s amazing how good [Gwen] sounds on a pretty country song.”
When asked earlier in the year if Blake ever saw himself collaborating with Gwen, he said, “I don’t know musically what Gwen and I would probably ever have in common… I don’t ever see Gwen and I sitting down and writing songs.” Gwen also said something similar in a recent interview saying she hadn’t worked with him up until this point because he’s country. She did also say that anything is possible, however, and found it surprising that they have very similar tastes music and in artists on The Voice.
People is typically pretty reliable and secretly we’ve been itching to hear Gwen on something new like this!
