Country music star Blake Shelton has watched the first three seasons of “The Chosen” and says that he “absolutely” loves it. The former coach on “The Voice” recently finished Season 3 and posted on social media about his experience.

“Random two thumbs up from a country singer,” he said Monday. “Just finished season 3 of The Chosen and I absolutely love it. No question in my mind why it’s a world wide phenomenon.”

Jonathan Roumie, who stars as Jesus in the hit series, commented, “Ah man. Thanks brother! Wait till you see what season 4 of @thechosentv has in store. Bless you.”

“Really appreciate that. Glad you love it,” The Chosen account responded.

In a 2019 interview with The Tennessean, Shelton discussed his faith in God, saying, “I believe in God now more than I ever have in my life. The biggest part of that is just how [Gwen Stefani] came into my life and now our relationship. It’s just too weird.”

“If you take God out of it, it doesn’t make sense,” he explained. “If you put God into it, everything that’s happened with us makes sense.”

Shelton said that he still swears and drinks more than he ought to but that it was Stefani who convinced him to start attending church for the first time. The two stars met when Stefani joined “The Voice” in 2014 and bonded over the fact they were each going through difficult, high-profile divorces.

Stefani was raised Catholic and has said that her faith in God helped her to get through her divorce and be open to finding love again. “For me it was a spiritual intervention,” she said. “It was a true miracle. I think the only way I got through all the hard times is just my spiritual faith and my belief in God, because I’ve just seen the miracles around me.”
