In a recent interview with ET, he spoke about prioritizing his family over his career and how he balances the two out in his life.

"Look, I love music and I love The Voice," he said. "I love all the cool things I get to do with my job, but those things all take a backseat now to Gwen and the kids and it's just a new phase of my life."

Blake is resolving to focus more on his marriage and family

"I'm having fun putting out songs when I feel like it and luckily the record label allows me to do that," Blake explained. 

"They always support it when I do it and my stupid ideas of doing a '90s country video -- they're always on board and because of that, we have a God's Country once in a while or a Happy Anywhere."

The star of The Voice stated that he wanted to keep chugging on for as long as he could, adding: "I wanna keep my music side of what I do alive from now til they fire me -- fans fire me. 

"I’ve pulled an audience from TV that maybe didn't even know who I was, probably didn't know who I was when I started on The Voice and it's kind of been the thing that took me to a different level in my career and I love that."
