Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani Perform 'Happy Anywhere' on 2020 ACM Awards

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani took the virtual stage at the 2020 ACM Awards. The couple couldn't perform in Nashville but "through the magic of television," Shelton and Stefani turned a green screen room into a passable version of Music City's best-known listening room, The Bluebird Cafe.

The duo premiered "Happy Anywhere" through a July 24 acoustic performance on Today.

Shelton and Stefani's new song covers how star-crossed lovers have something in common with well-traveled country singers: They can be happy anywhere with the right person (or setlist). A song that suits the couple's careers and love lives was written by Josh Osborne, Matt Jenkins and Ross Copperman.

Being with a special someone stands out even more when summer tours and festival getaways are off the table.

"We've all been in quarantine and lockdown, and hopefully we've been doing that with somebody that we really love and enjoy being around," Shelton said in a press release. "That's what happened with Gwen and me this summer -- and this entire year."

"Happy Anywhere" Lyrics

I've always been a rolling stone
With a reckless streak
Yeah, the grass never gets too grown
Underneath my feet
City lights, southern stars
No such thing as gone too far

I'm running wide open
I was born with my feet in motion
But since I met you, I swear
I could be happy anywhere
Any map dot location
You're always my destination
You're the only thing that I'm chained to
I could be happy anywhere
I could be happy anywhere with you

Yeah, the beauty of the northern lights
In my mind has faded
The blue sky over Telluride
Next to you's kinda overrated
The winding road, let it twist
My home's wherever your heart is

I'm running wide open
I was born with my feet in motion
But since I met you, I swear
I could be happy anywhere
Any map dot location
You're always my destination
You're the only thing that I'm chained to
I could be happy anywhere
I could be happy anywhere with you

So girl, I hope you know
Wherever you go, I go, I know

I'm running wide open
I was born with my feet in motion
But since I met you, I swear
I could be happy anywhere
Any map dot location
You're always my destination
You're the only thing that I'm chained to
I could be happy anywhere
I could be happy anywhere with you

I could be happy anywhere with you
