As OK! previously reported, the Oklahoma native shocked his fans when he shared he would not be returning to the NBC hit show.
“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after Season 23,” Shelton wrote. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me.”
“It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best,” the “God Gave Me You” singer declared. “It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week.”
