Gwen Sebastian Talks About Recording ‘My Eyes’ With Blake Shelton

Gwen Sebastian, contestant on Season 2 of ‘The Voice,’ opens up about recording the sexy hit ‘My Eyes’ with country star Blake Shelton.

She tells Taste of Country that her relationship with the ‘Boys ‘Round Here’ hitmaker, who was also her coach on ‘The Voice,’ is more akin to a brother-sister relationship.

“He’s done so much for me. There’s really no way I can repay him back, to be honest with you,” says Sebastian. “Maybe try to pay him back in a bow and arrow, maybe some vodka,” she adds laughing.

The song ‘My Eyes,’ which appears on his record ‘Based on a True Story…’ isn’t the type of song you would sing to your sister or brother, and she admits it’s a little weird singing lyrics like “Come a little closer, girl the way you look tonight / My eyes are the only thing I don’t wanna take off of you.”

“You just get used to it,” Sebastian says, before adding, “I’m hoping it goes No. 1 and if it doesn’t it’s my fault.”

How does Miranda Lambert feel about another woman singing with her man? “She loves it,” the ‘Small Town Soul’ singer says. “It’s like a big happy family and even for Blake to ask me to sing on his album is pretty cool, but to have him feature me, is amazing.”
