Blake Shelton Feels Helpless Once His Winners on "The Voice" Launch Their Careers

Warner Music NashvilleBlake Shelton is ecstatic his team member Danielle Bradbery won The Voice Tuesday night.  He's also a little sad his role in her career is now pretty much over.  Danielle is the third straight member of Blake's team to win The Voice.  Last season's winner, Cassadee Pope, is off to a good start at country radio with her debut single "Wasting All These Tears," but Blake can only sit back and watch what becomes of his artists once they leave the show.

He says, "I'm kind of professionally taken out of these artists' lives and they move on with the record company and managers and stuff, you kind of feel helpless at that point sometimes, and you want to see 'em take off."

Blake goes out of his way to promote his acts from The Voice by taking them out on tour or talking about them in interviews though.

"I'm gonna do that," Blake explains. "If it'll help just a little bit, that's what I wanna do."

Blake has hired his former team member Gwen Sebastian to sing backup with him on the road.  He launches the Ten Times Crazier tour July 19 in Virginia Beach, VA.
