Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton might be stuck in quarantine on Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch, but that isn’t stopped them from celebrating an incredible musical accomplishment. Their duet went to No. 1 on Billboard’s country music list last week, and Stefani marked the occasion with an Instagram post.
“Number one party! Thank you!!” Stefani wrote alongside a clip of the two kissing. The song, “Nobody But You,” is Stefani’s first time appearing on the country charts.
Fans were elated for them. “Congratulations queen SO HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS!!! You deserve this so much,” one wrote.
“I was just watching your Instagram stories you look so freaking happy and I love seeing that!! ❤️ congratulations you deserve it!!” another said.
“Congratulations! Another great hit!!! On my happy playlist. Ya’ll brighten these challenging times,” a third added.
Shelton previously posted about their number one hit in an Instagram post of his own. “Congratulations [Stefani] on your first country song going #1 at country radio!!! Not bad for your first try!!!!! Thank you all as well!!!” he captioned his post.
“‘Nobody but You’ wasn’t written as a duet, but it is a duet,” Shelton said in a statement to Billboard. “I have to thank [the song’s writers] Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James for trusting us with this incredible song that captures exactly how I feel about Gwen, and I can connect with every lyric. I still pinch myself every time I hear one of my songs on the radio, but I have to pinch and twist really hard to believe I’m singing it with Gwen Stefani. As always, thank you to the fans that listen and I cannot wait until we can all be together celebrating music again.”
Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
