While we already know how Blake and Gwen fell in love (mutual divorces and a hit reality show brings people together, you guys!), the country boy dished on what really solidified their attraction to each other. According to Shelton, the beauty's songwriting abilities REALLY impressed him!
Speaking on the duo's collaboration on Go Ahead And Break My Heart, the singer revealed:
