Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani released their fourth collaboration, Happy Anywhere, back in July. 

And the lovebirds serenaded each other with their Hot 100 hit, during Wednesday night's Academy of Country Music Awards. 

They sang on a green-screen set made to look like Nashville's iconic Blue Bird Cafe, the original performance location, though it was broadcast from Los Angeles. 

For the performance, the God's Country singer sat on a stool while strumming on a guitar. 

He opted for a simple button-up collard shirt in a dark blue color and dark wash denim jeans. 

While the No Doubt alum, 50, decided on an all white look in a three-quarter sleeve white denim jacket, with gold fringe on the back, cut-off fringed shorts and a white tank. 

She added to her look with gold bracelets and layered necklaces, black fishnet leggings and gold boots. 

'Hey guys, Blake here, and I hope everyone out there is doing their best to stay healthy,' The Voice judge said before singing. 

Adding: 'Gwen and I wish that we could be in Nashville tonight, but we couldn't.'

Kicking off their performance, the couple, who began dating in 2015, sat in an empty room, with a green-screened floor and plain green walls. 

Only their stools, Blake's microphone stand and a speaker with them, at the snap of the country singer's fingers, the room transformed into the Blue Bird Cafe.  

'But through the magic of television, voila!' he said. 'Welcome back to the Bluebird Cafe, everybody.'   

Gwen also shared a behind the scenes look at their performance on social media, earlier on Wednesday. 

At the ceremony, Blake was among the night's big winners taking home Single of the Year award for his song God's Country.

He began his speech, which was piped in from Los Angeles, with a bit of folksy surprise.

'Holy Cow! Single of the Year!' he gushed. 'This is a complete shock and an absolute honor.' 

 

After thanking his producer, he thanked country radio for 'playing the crap out of not only this song, but you've been so good to me with all my singles, and thank you for that.'

He ended the speech with a salute to his partner Gwen 'for continuing to encourage me to keep doing this and keep trying and being my inspiration.'

Posting on her Instagram stories, the pop star recorded the workers on set in face-shields and masks as this years ceremony largely saw virtual performances due to the pandemic. 

She also took a video of Blake rehearsing their performance on the green-screen stage before recording. 

They recently moved into their new$13M  family home in Encino in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.

Purchasing the spectacular property back in 2019 and they are now finally moving in, after spending recent months in Oklahoma amid the coronavirus pandemic.

'They are very happy to be settled at last in their family home,a source told Us Weekly earlier this month.
