Blake Shelton won’t ever leave his spinning red chair on The Voice -- at least if he has anything to do with hit.

The country megastar tells a group of Nashville reporters that when he’s left the hit NBC show, he’ll be gone for good.

“I’m not ever gonna be somebody who does a season of The Voice and then takes one off and then comes back again,” Blake says. “I love working there. I wanna always do it. There’s nowhere to go in television that wouldn’t be a step down. It is absolutely the perfect job for somebody like me.”

Blake and Adam Levine return for Season 7 later this fall with new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell, but Blake’s still got two former coaches on his mind.

“Gosh dang it, man. I’m gonna miss the hell out of Usher and Shakira,” he says.

The “Boys ‘Round Here” singer goes on to say Usher and Shakira will remain “lifelong friends.”

The new season of The Voice starts in September on NBC.
