Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are bringing their happiness to the ACM Awards!

During Wednesday's show, the couple, who have been dating since 2015, performed their duet "Happy Anywhere" in front of a green-screened, virtual Bluebird Cafe from Los Angeles.

"Hey guys, Blake here, and I hope everyone out there is doing their best to stay healthy," Shelton, 44, said ahead of the performance in front of a green screen. "Gwen and I wish that we could be in Nashville tonight, but we couldn't."

"But through the magic of television, voila!" he said as the background turned into the iconic Nashville venue. "Welcome back to the Bluebird Cafe, everybody."

Shelton, who was nominated for four awards, took home the single of the year award for "God's Country."

"Holy cow, single of the year! This is a complete shock and an absolute honor," he said as he accepted the award.

"Thank you to my management and thank you to the fans and thank you Gwen Stefani for continuing to encourage me to keep doing this and keep trying and being my inspiration," he added.
