Gwen Stefani’s Son, Kingston Rossdale, Takes the Stage for His First Performance at Ole Red in Oklahoma
Kingston Rossdale is following a familiar path. The 17-year-old son of Gwen Stefani and her ex-husband, Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, took his first steps into the world of singing during a recent weekend at Ole Red, the bar and live music venue in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, owned by his stepfather Blake Shelton and Stefani.
Shelton and Stefani also own a nearby farm. Ahead of the shows, Shelton generated excitement for Rossdale’s debut by hinting at the upcoming performance on his social media. He announced that he would be handing the stage over to a newcomer who was about to make their very first public appearance. Shelton’s post read, “See you at the @OleRed Tishomingo Doghouse!!!! You never know who else may show up.”
During the performance, Rossdale, clad in an oversized t-shirt and loose-fitting pants, engaged with the audience while his acoustic guitar accompanist played softly in the background. It’s worth noting that Rossdale’s appearance doesn’t necessarily indicate his aspiration to become a country singer.
The crowd erupted in cheers, expressing their heartfelt appreciation for his performance. Rossdale visibly embraced the positive reception with a sense of warmth.
“Love you all, thank you for being here!” he graciously conveyed after completing the song. “Your presence and support mean the world to me. I genuinely hope you had an amazing evening and enjoyed yourselves!”
Shelton beamed with pride at Rossdale’s confident stage presence, warmly embracing him as he exited the stage.
Shelton takes his role as a stepfather to heart, striking a balance between responsibility and enjoying quality time with his three stepsons. Reflecting on his relationship with them, Shelton shared his insights with People in 2022. He revealed, “They’ve shown me sides of myself that I wasn’t aware of: I’m not just a country singer or a guy who likes to have fun; I’m actually someone they lean on. That’s a responsibility I never had before, and it’s not something I ever anticipated embracing.”
Shelton added that this experience has granted him a distinct kind of self-worth, or perhaps the opposite, as he placed himself “way down on the totem pole” while his stepsons took a prominent place.
He pointed to his stepsons as a driving force behind his decision to step away from “The Voice.” Explaining his choice, he said, “Regrets are often only clear in hindsight. If I had continued on that path, I would have missed out on more important aspects of life. At the moment, that priority is our children.”
The connection he shares with his stepsons has influenced his life choices, leading him to focus on what truly matters to him.
