Just hours before the live debut of their duet “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” on NBC’s The Voice, Blake Shelton is opening up about his duet with girlfriend Gwen Stefani. According to Shelton, the pair wrote the song together from a real place in the early stages of their relationship.
Blake shared to PEOPLE that the song is “about some serious insecurities that we had when we first started down this road with each other. We both had trust issues. We were getting over it, but we wrote this song about it, and it’s perfect.”
“We’re a little bit nervous about it, but nervous in a way that we can’t wait and nervous in a way that we hope people think it’s as good as we think it is,” Blake says about the live performance of the track from If I’m Honest, due out May 20.” “It’s like people getting a look at something personal for the first time.”
