County music singer-songwriter Keith Urban enjoyed getting to know Blake Shelton on a more personal level while on 'The Voice' set! More here.

Although country music superstars Keith Urban and Blake Shelton have a lot in common and attend many of the same events, the stars hadn’t gotten a chance to know each other well. That all changed when Shelton recruited Urban to act as his Battle Rounds advisor for The Voice‘s 15th season.

“I like Blake a lot. I like him even more after spending a whole day with him and getting to know him,” the New Zealand native confessed to multiple media outlets. “I realized I didn’t know him that well. I’ve never really spent any time with him, so I really enjoyed it.”

As fans know, Urban was previously a judge on American Idol and was also a coach on the Australian version of The Voice. 

“I had a blast doing it. I love that side of it,” the “Never Comin Down” artist shared about his latest role. “I love being able to try and offer advice, feedback, insight, guidance — anything I can to those guys and girls who haven’t had that opportunity, and haven’t been around people who can give them specific help.”
