Blake Shelton says his relationship with Gwen Stefani has helped him believe in God. The couple has been together since 2015 when both of them were coming out of public divorces. The country singer says the timing and dynamic of everything points to the fact that God brought them together.

“I believe in God now more than I ever have in my life,” Shelton told The Tennessean. “The biggest part of that is just how (Gwen) came into my life and now our relationship. It’s just too weird. If you take God out of it, it doesn’t make sense. If you put God into it, everything that’s happened with us makes sense.”
This is the reason why Shelton has been recording some Christian-themed songs. Earlier this year, he released “God’s Country.” It was one of the fastest songs he ever had to top country charts. And, it’s the highest streaming song of his career. It’s an important song because it combines his re-energized faith and his love of the land.
