Blake Prepares To Leave The Voice

Blake Shelton plans to leave The Voice after Season 23 ends. The show has played a huge role in his life, since he’s served as a coach for every season.

Shelton also met his now-wife, Gwen Stefani, on the show. She has three sons, and they’re growing up so fast.

Knowing how precious time is, Shelton decided to leave The Voice so he can focus on his family. He told PEOPLE:

“If I walked away from my career at this time, the only thing that I run the risk of is having regrets that I’m missing out on some more important things in life. For now, that’s our kids. This isn’t about me anymore and never will be again.”

The #1 Thing He Wants To Keep

There’s one thing Shelton would love to take from the set before he leaves. Though he doesn’t know if the show will let him…or if it will even be possible!

He told PEOPLE before Season 23 started:

I don’t know if they’re gonna offer [to let him take something home] or not. I feel like they owe me a d— chair though,” he said, referencing his famous red coach’s chair. “…who else can sit in my chair? It’s like the three bears — I don’t want anybody else sitting in my chair. I’m gonna try to get that away from them. Maybe I’ll have to buy it or something.”

Now that Season 23 is actively airing new episodes, Shelton is doubling down on his comments. Recently, Shelton posted a photo of himself smiling in his red chair. “Man, I’m really going to miss this chair,” he wrote in the caption.
