Luke Bryan jokes that Blake Shelton should marry Gwen Stefani before she visits the optometrist
Luke Bryan thinks that Blake Shelton should make haste and get married to Gwen Stefani as soon as possible, hopefully before she comes back to her senses.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, the talented musician joked about Shelton and Stefani's impending marriage plans.
At one point, he even offered to even marry the couple amid rumors of wedding bells being in the future. "I'll do the sermon. The sermon? The service?" Bryan said. "I would be honored to marry Blake and Gwen."
But is there really a need to rush? Bryan had the perfect answer to this question.
"If Blake were smart, he would marry her before she goes to an optometrist," he said, grinning from ear to ear. "Every time I meet Gwen, she's holding her phone way out here. I'm like, 'That's it, she can't see!'"
Bryan, who is now a judge on American Idol, did not waste any time before taking digs at Shelton. The two have always been known for relentless camaraderie, with Shelton saying people watching the show "are going to realize just how dumb he [Bryan] really is."
"Well, Blake's got a few years on me, but my intelligence is far superior than his," Bryan said on Sunday. "So, yeah, I think I got him. I need some more competition."
The singer, during the interview, also took the chance to speak about his nomination for Entertainer of the Year, an honor he took very seriously.
"You never take it for granted, always certainly humbled and honored by it," he said. "It'll be a fun moment to see who wins -- it's always fun to see what face you'll make if you don't win." He continued, "It's an emotional ride. We work hard -- I work hard out here -- all of us country artists. We work hard on the road, and any time we get recognized for it it's pretty emotional."
