The duo couldn’t help but shout out former coach Stefani. The No Doubt frontwoman, 49, was in the audience to support boyfriend Shelton, who had earlier taken home the prize for country artist of 2018.

“All-time favorite coach, right there, Gwen Stefani. I love her,” Shelton said, pointing at the singer before Daly piped in, “You wanna come up? Come up and say a few [words]. Come on up!”

“Who would’ve thought that this country artist could land one of my oldest friends in the music business?” Daly said as Stefani and Shelton laughed.

“Oh my God, I’m so excited to be with Blake Shelton!” Stefani raved when Daly asked her to say something.

“Thank you guys so much,” the “Neon Light” crooner told the audience before Daly joked into the microphone of his pals, “They’re gonna get a room.”
