Blake Shelton is  worried that the amount of time that he spends on The Voice is  harming his country credibility.

"Sometimes when  I'm out there for long periods of time, I start thinking, 'Man, I hope I'm not  getting passed over’,” Blake said. “‘I hope that people aren't forgetting about  me, or that I'm that not in the club anymore, because it's hard not to think  about that sometimes, 'cause I spend a crap load of time out there doing the  television stuff."

Blake is proud  that he’s made The Voice more country-sounding, saying, "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.'"


I think he's actually HELPING country music.  What do you think?
