Highlighting the smitten hit’s heartwarming lyrics and the couple’s syrupy-sweet vocal blend, the new clip is probably most interesting as another look into the playful, opposites-attract nature of Shelton and Stefani’s relationship. One is an aw-shucks country boy and the other a West Coast pop star with Platinum-punk roots, but put them together, and they’re like peas in a pod.
The video finds Shelton and Stefani singing together (and to the camera), standing side by side as Shelton strums an acoustic guitar. He’s wearing a simple button down shirt, with Stefani decked out in a green and white leather jacket, and like the song says, they just seem content to be around each other.
“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,” goes the chorus.
The new acoustic version of “Happy Anywhere” follows Blake Shelton’s recent ACM Awards win for Single of the Year (“God’s Country”), where they also performed “Happy Anywhere” on a virtual Bluebird Cafe stage. Both he and Stefani are confirmed to reunite as coaches on season 19 of NBC’s The Voice — where they first met years ago — and the show is set to return on October 19.
