Ultimate Shefani Playlist: 5 Songs About Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s Love
Since they started dating two years ago, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have had a tremendous influence on each other's music. Here are five songs inspired by their love, ranked in order of least to most "Aww"-worthiness.
First, a quick history lesson: the singers were both coming off of divorces when they started courting in 2015. The unlikely romance between a California pop-rocker and Oklahoma country star turned serious quickly and they soon started to collaborate. This playlist includes one true collaboration, Shelton's most recent song "I'll Name the Dogs" and three others that are about the other person. Of course, they're all love songs.
5. Blake Shelton's "I'll Name the Dogs"
Find Stefani's influence in the music video, because her kids star in a scene that finds an elderly couple getting married. It's really tempting to believe the wedding song foretells a union between these unlikely lovers, but we won't start that rumor.
4. Blake Shelton's "Go Ahead and Break My Heart"
This is the only song the couple sing on together. Stefani wrote it with Shelton for his If I'm Honest album, so it's a true Shefani collaboration. While not a single, the track was still super popular.
"She and I sat down and wrote this song about some serious insecurities that we had when we first started down this road with each other, and we both had trust issues," Shelton said (quote via People).

3. Gwen Stefani's "Make Me Like You"
The pop song from Stefani's This Is What Truth Feels Like album is about the start of her relationship with Shelton. She confirmed it to Jimmy Kimmel! Lyrics include: "I was fine before I met you / I was broken but fine / I was lost and uncertain / But my heart was still mine ... Why'd you have to go and make me like you / Yeah this is a feeling I'm not used to."
2. Blake Shelton's "Came Here to Forget"
Shelton never 100 percent confirmed he was drawn to this song because of the end of his marriage to Miranda Lambert and start of his relationship with Gwen Stefani, but how could it not be? "Girl getting over him and I'm getting over her / The eyes have it made, ain't gotta say a word / Misery loves company, that's why it's you and me / Buying each other drinks, back at the bar, thick as thieves," he sings to start "Came Here to Forget." Stefani was also reeling from a divorce when they started dating.
1. Blake Shelton's "A Guy With a Girl"
Shelton's chart-topping single from If I'm Honest wasn't written by the country singer, but when he sings it, he's thinking about her. He loves when they go out and nobody notices him because they're all drawn to the No Doubt hitmaker. "A Guy With a Girl" is essentially that, which draws major "Aww" points.
