Blake Shelton has ruled out returning to 'The Voice'

Blake Shelton has no plans to go back to 'The Voice' in future.



Blake Shelton has ruled out returning to 'The Voice'.

The 47-year-old singer was one of the original coaches on the singing competition but walked away after 23 seasons and nine victories last year and he has no plans to "ever" come back to the show as a full-time coach in the future.

He told E! News: “I did 23 seasons of the show and I enjoyed it, and by the time I got to that last season, it was time.

"I’ve seen every reincarnation of the show that we could come up with to try to keep it exciting.

“I don’t mean to sound like I’m not a part of the family anymore. It was the most important years of my life where I was a coach on 'The Voice'. But as far as the job goes, I don’t think I’m ever ready to do that again as I sit here now.”

Instead, the 'God's Country' singer - who met his wife Gwen Stefani on the show - wants to focus on his "day job".

He said: “I needed to get back to what my day job was anyway, which is, you know, being a country singer.”

Blake is also busy with his new bar Ole Red Las Vegas and expects it to be a big hit with country fans visiting Sin City.

He said: "People love having a Nashville connection in Las Vegas because so many country music fans come to Las Vegas.

"To be able to take a break from gambling or whatever you're doing here and just come have a beer and listen to some live country music is going to be so handy."
