Blake Shelton Reflects On Time At THE VOICE: ‘It’s Changed My Life’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Blake Shelton has been a coach on THE VOICE for the show’s entire run, but the country star is getting ready to say goodbye. Season 23 will be his last on THE VOICE. 

“I think I was close to calling it a day right when COVID hit [in 2020],” he explained. “And then, because of COVID, I didn’t want to walk away from the show and leave everybody in a bind.”

Shelton decided to stay until “the world…[got] back to normal,” but now he’s ready to leave THE VOICE for good. 

The singer shared that the show changed his life in many ways, including his relationships. 

“I met my wife on this show,” Shelton shared. “It’s changed my life in every way it possibly can, from a personal standpoint.”

He continued, “When I came on as a coach on this show, I mean, everything in my life was turned upside down,” he added. “And in a good way, you know? This has been incredible, but it’s time, you know. It’s time for not even what’s next. A little bit of nothing would be nice.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Shelton’s plans for his life after THE VOICE:

Country singer Blake Shelton announced he will leave THE VOICE after this season to spend more time with his family.

“I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from THE VOICE after next season,” Shelton announced via Instagram late last year. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me.”

Shelton has been a coach on THE VOICE since the first season, co-starring with many other singers including his now wife, Gwen Stefani who joined the show in 2014 and coached a handful of seasons since. The two started dating in 2015, following Stefani’s first season and got married in July of 2021, making Shelton a stepfather to Stefani’s three sons.

Although THE VOICE has had many winners throughout the years, Shelton believes he has won “the ultimate prize” by meeting his wife. The two have shared that they are happiest together as a family at their ranch in Oklahoma.
