Check out Gwen’s new interview with the TODAY show this morning courtesy of the program. She returned and looked amazing in a peek-a-boo peacock dress with a styled top-knot and red lips. Gwen chatted with Carson Daly and Matt Lauer and we were first treated to a sneak peek at the upcoming season of The Voice with Gwen persuading a 13 year old contestant to join her team.

Gwen says that she’s amazed at the talent this season on the show and has been blown away by how calm the artists have been. She says that it’s been a different experience this time around due to her incredible year in 2016 and feels like she has so much more to offer to her team. “I had an extraordinary year last year… I got to make a record and do new music and then go back on tour after seven years, I hadn’t toured… that whole exchange of love that I had and that whole experience and I can bring that now. It’s fresh…”.
She says that the dynamic and chemistry between the coaches this season has been “easy and comfortable” and she loves working with Alicia. Gwen admits that she was “nervous at first” working with Blake now on-set but has found the experience natural for the couple and sometimes it’s fun to take their work home with them. Gwen says that the two help each other and that she’s learned so much about country music in the last year.
When asked how she plans on topping her amazing year, Gwen says that she’s not going to try and just wants to continue on her journey. “I feel like I just woke up spiritually… everything is in color and you’re seeing things with new eyes. You just see everything with gratitude, you just check everything all the time. That’s what I’ve kind of been doing and it saved me.” Gwen and Carson reflect on their many years of friendship back to him playing No Doubt on their local radio station KROQ back in the mid 90s.
