Over the years on The Voice, Blake Shelton and Carson Daly have become best buds. So, it’s no wonder Carson’s 13-year-old son, Jackson felt very comfortable roasting Blake about leaving his father after the season ends.
For NBC’s Nightly News, Jackson Daly guilt-tripped Blake Shelton with the following question: “You and my dad have been on The Voice throughout it all. Why are you leaving him?”
Shelton didn’t hesitate and answered quickly, “You know, when I first started on this show, I think you were one, and I feel like I just wanted to stay here long enough that I felt like you were grown enough to make it on your own without my influence.”
Jackson then asked for advice for a 13-year-old like himself who can audition for The Voice, Blake stated, “What I would say to you is music’s probably not gonna be your thing because I’ve heard you sing, and please, for the sake of your own self-worth, don’t put yourself through that.” Jackson had a fun response with a smile, re-wording the question as, “Alright, well what would you say to kids my age, not me, who actually can sing, who want to try-out for The Voice?”
