I wanted to stay true to my Country roots and add that flavor. I thought we each gave our all." Shelton said, "The first time I ever heard Gwen's voice I knew it was something special. She has the rare ability to combine power with passion in her singing abilities. Although our journey together has ended on 'The Voice,' it's just beginning in real life. I'm so proud every night to share the stage with her out here on the 'Well Lit & Amplified Tour!' She is a star! We love our Gwen."
