"I knew the moment I heard this song that I wanted to record it," Shelton said in a statement to ET. "Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, you wrote a perfect song in which every lyric has meaning in my life, and I thank you. Another thanks goes to the fans who continue to listen -- and I know there are a lot of distractions these days -- one day soon we can all celebrate music together again."

Shelton previously told ET that "Nobody But You" held a special place in his and Stefani's hearts. 

"Gwen was crying when we even just talked about singing it together at all," he revealed. "It just seemed to fit perfectly with our story, and, musically, I think it walks the line of what I can do and what she can do. Everything just kind of aligned and came together, and it's one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments."
