Blake Shelton began to resent his touring schedule when it became non-stop.

The 44-year-old country singer has admitted that the volume of concerts he was playing became "too much" for him because he never had a day off.

Speaking on 'Apple Music Country', he said: “I was touring full-time, or as much as I could, and it became too much, it was too much for me personally.

“I mean, there was never a day off, it was just crazy, and I started resenting touring a little bit. I was like, ‘Oh my God, what is the point, what are we doing? I’m not enjoying it anymore.'”

'The Voice' coach - who is engaged to Gwen Stefani - quickly resumed his 'Friends and Heroes' tour after the coronavirus pandemic put concerts on hold but the star has only played 25 shows a year since 2013.

He added: “That’s obviously not very many for any artist that is trying to maintain that touring profile. But what it has done is, it’s kept me so excited about when I go on stage now.

“It’s like, ‘Hey, we get to go be country stars this month.’ And it’s so exciting, and it’s something that I look forward to, I really do.”

It comes after Blake admitted that he regrets "living life to the max" when he was younger following the 20th anniversary of his hit debut single 'Austin'.

He said: "I would have told myself to get more rest back then. When I started I was 24 and lived life to the max back then. It's probably why I ran out of battery so soon."

The star also revealed that he regrets some of the fashion choices he made during his early days of stardom, particularly the mullet hairstyle.

Blake added: "I would have told that kid, 'Hey man, the mullet's not as cool as you think it is."
