Blake Shelton to Return for Season 10 of ‘The Voice’
Blake Shelton might as well have an apartment on set at The Voice, considering the amount of time he spends working on the show. Shelton is on deck to return for Season 10 of the series, premiering in February 2016. Fans will be happy to hear his sometimes-sarcastic, charmingly blunt commentary won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
However, the Season 10, the celebrity panel of co-star coaches will be shaken up a bit, as Christina Aguilera will return, replacing current coach Gwen Stefani. As of now, Shelton is serving as a coach on Season 9 alongside Stefani, Pharrell and Adam Levine. The celebrities recently firmed up their crews of newbies and are ready to battle it out for the crown.
Shelton has already scored several promising country acts, like Tyler Dickerson, Krista Hughes and Morgan Frazier, but also nabbed some impressive pop and rock singers, like Cole Criske and Blaine Mitchell, this season. The competition is tough this year, but the country star has gone far with several of his artists in the competition in previous years. His protégés Cassadee Pope, Danielle Bradbery, the Swon Brothers and Meghan Linsey have all had successful starts to their careers after the show.
Though the “Sangria” singer has had a rough summer dealing with his divorce from Miranda Lambert, he says he is now “in a good place.” He recently shut down a few blocks of Nashville’s famous Music Row for a free outdoor concert called Pickin’ on the Patio, but has no further dates on the calendar for the rest of the year while The Voice is airing.
Shelton was recently announced as a headliner for 2016 Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo., along with his good friend Brad Paisley. The pair are also working together on this season of The Voice, with Paisley serving as a mentor to Team Blake.
