"Blake, you are a rare human being, and for all the success that you have had in your life as a singer, a songwriter, a musician, a performer, an entertainer, an actor, a comedian, an entrepreneur, he's the same guy today as he was back then," Stefani shared. "A country guy with a lot of love for country music."

"[Blake is] magnetic, the most generous person you'll ever know, and always just him no matter where he goes. Making people laugh, making people happy, making jokes. The reason Blake Shelton is here today on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is because you are part of the country dream, the Hollywood dream, and you are part of the American dream," Stefani told Shelton. "And everybody knows you are my dream come true. I love you."
