Has Blake Shelton Shifted “The Voice” Toward Country Music?

After a whirlwind appearance at CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Blake Shelton jetted back to L.A. for Monday’s (June 10) semifinals round of NBC's The Voice.

Funny thing, reporters asked Blake over the weekend, The Voice—which also has rocker Adam Levine and pop stars Usher and Shakira for coaches—seems to have lots more country music on there lately.

“Well, it sure seems like that, especially with the other coaches last week having all their artists do country songs, it’s kind of turned into the country version of The Voice,” Blake said.

“And I read a few articles about people saying the whole format has kind of shifted country, and my answer to that is, ‘You’re damn right.’”
