Like many of us, Blake Shelton has packed on the quarantine 15. The country singer recently revealed he wants to lose a little weight before walking down the aisle. Shelton will soon marry Gwen Stefani that will make all “The Voices” fans everywhere ooh and ahh.

Appearing on fellow country music star Luke Bryan’s podcast “Party Barn Radio,” Shelton discussed his wedding and his weight loss goals. There will probably be a couple of salads in Shelton’s future.

“I feel like if I say 10, I have to do it. So, 10. It’s out there now, I can’t let people down,” Shelton said on the podcast. “I’ve readjusted all the mirrors in the house. So they look like you when you’re taking a selfie from up above because you can’t even stand and look at myself in the mirror.”

Losing weight can be a tall ask, especially at 44. But Shelton has a couple of tricks up his sleeves. Hopefully, by his wedding day, he will be able to fit into his tux.

“I’ve rearranged them or they’re kind of angled down, looking down at me,” Shelton said with a laugh. “So I’m looking up and it’s not so bad.”

Shelton and Stefani plan to marry in a small ceremony on Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma. The country singer hand-built a chapel on the property for the occasion. Their engagement late last year comes after five years of dating. The two met as coaches on the hit music competition “The Voice.”

Blake Shelton Discusses ‘The Voice’

Of course, Luke Bryan knows a thing or two about music competitions himself. The singer has been a judge on “American Idol” for the past four seasons. Shelton and Bryan compared the similarities and differences between their jobs. Shelton believes contestants on “The Voice” are a little more prepared by the time he hears their audition.

“I’ve always said that the tough parts of our jobs are in two different timelines, because what you guys do with the audition process, you’re literally out there hitting the streets,” Shelton said. “People coming in with a number taped on their back or chest or whatever, and they’re just as raw as they could possibly be. Where on ‘The Voice,’ by the time they get through the audition process to make it onto the blind auditions, they’re a little more prepared for that moment because of what they go through just to get to that part.”

Audiences can watch both Shelton and Bryan on their respective shows when they return later this year.
