Blake Shelton talks about leaving The Voice after Season 23

While he wants to spend more time with his family, he also wants to take a step back in his career. Blake has no plans to leave country music behind. However, he wants to pivot how he approaches his own music career. Blake has learned a lot from the younger talent on the show.

“When I started on The Voice, that was 10 years into my career as a country artist. I never really made it to the A-level of country artists until I became a coach,” Blake Shelton told People.”The show did a hell of a lot more for me than I brought to the table at the time. I’ve far exceeded anything I thought I could ever accomplish in the entertainment world.”

He’s “open” to whatever opportunities may come his way. However, Blake is not in a rush to start a new gig so soon. Blake is already co-hosting his new show Barmageddon with Carson Daly and Nikki Bella. He wants to take his job as a stepfather seriously.

He wants to spend more time with his stepsons Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, who his wife Gwen Stefani shares with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. He admits that he’s missed out on quality time with them because of his career.

“The kids see me as a very important person in their life. [When they ask], ‘Why isn’t Blake here?’ I take that stuff to heart,” Blake Shelton explained. “I’ve made plenty of money, but you can’t buy time back. I don’t want any regrets.”
