The song went No. 1, marking Shelton’s 28th No. 1 single and Stefani’s second at Country radio.

“Happy Anywhere” was co-written by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins and follows the release of Shelton and Stefani’s chart-topping duet, “Nobody But You.”

“You know, ‘Happy Anywhere’ has got to be one of the most fun songs that I’ve ever had a chance to record and the actual recording process was a blast. Listening to it afterwards was a blast,” Shelton previously explained of the song. “I had a moment where Gwen told me, “You know, there’s something about this song that just makes you smile.” And it doesn’t hurt that it has Happy in the title.”

Prior to the show, Stefani enjoyed a Nashville favorite at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken.
