Blake Claims He Almost Quit Television Last Year

We saw lots of Blake Shelton on national TV last year. And it all got a little overwhelming for the country star, he told wetpaint.com at last week's Television Critics Association gathering in Pasadena, Calif.

“Oh my God. It sucked,” Blake said. “I don't care who wants me to say that or not.

"I mean, I was doing season three of The Voice, season four of The Voice, CMAs and my Christmas special all within like three weeks of each other. And there was one point where I called my manager, and was like, 'That's it. I quit. I just quit. Figure it out. I'm going home.'”

But Blake had a change of heart, he said.

"It's like you get to that point where you're like, well, OK,” he said. “We're all learning, figuring out how to balance being a maturing country artist, and then someone that's involved in television now. S--t, man, I never planned on doing this. I don't know if I'll do it once The Voice is over, but I'm having a ball doing it right now.”
