The news broke yesterday that Blake Shelton would be leaving The Voice after 23 seasons. He will finish this season and do the spring season but will not be returning after that. This is devastating news for me and I am sure many other viewers. I don't know how The Voice ever be the same without Blake. Could one of these country artists fill his seat?

Who wouldn't want to be on team Reba? First of all, she is a legend, known as the "Queen of Country Music." She has also had her own coaching series online as part of the Master Class series. Oh yeah, and she served as Blakes's advisor early on, on The Voice. Another plus for Reba is, she is a fan of all music, not just country.

Garth Brooks

Do I even need to give reasons as to why Garth would be a perfect fit for the chair? Garth is the biggest-selling artist of all time. He sells out stadiums all over the world. He served as the mega mentor just a few seasons ago. He would be exceptional in grooming artists in becoming successful.
