In many ways, Blake Shelton is “The Voice.” The country superstar has been a part of the musical competition show since the very beginning. Other coaches may come and go. But Shelton has been a mainstay with his popular brand of witty jokes and an ego a mile wide.
After all, Shelton was the coach to show dressed in full king regalia to let his fellow coaches know he was the winner. And win, Shelton has over the past decade. Over his 10 years on the show, the country singer has won the competition a total of seven times. And Shelton would add an eighth time to his record if given the chance.
On Twitter, the country singer got reflective and looked back on his 10-year journey on the show. He wrote, “10 years of @nbcthevoice… still can’t believe that. I’m so damn lucky to have worked with so many talented artists and watch them grow. This has been an incredible season and journey. Love ya fam!!!!”
When Blake Shelton Will Leave ‘The Voice’
Over the years, Blake Shelton has had to squash rumors that he will be leaving “The Voice” soon. It seems that every season a rumor pops up that the singer’s days are numbered. For his part, Shelton has enjoyed his spot on the show. When Adam Levine left, Shelton became the only coach to appear on every season of “The Voice” since its inception.
It’s a badge he’s worn with honor while making time for his music and touring as well. But Shelton is also looking forward to eventually settling down. The country singer feels he’s reached the height of his career, accomplishing everything that he’s ever dreamed. Shelton confessed in a recent interview that he’s looking forward to settling down.
“I hope that’s not too far down the road,” he said on Today. “Ten years sounds like way too long to me. I’d like to see that sooner than later.”
Shelton has already made steps towards domestic bliss. For one, he’s engaged to his long-time girlfriend Gwen Stefani, with a wedding in the near future. The singer may leave “The Voice” one day, but he’s looking forward to a little quiet time.
“I mean, we’ve both pretty much taken it to the limit as far as our careers go and touring and now the television thing,” Shelton said. “It’s been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things. But, hopefully, at some point, we get a chance to live some life.”
