Rarely seen son Jackson Daly, 13, makes his show debut today to interview dad’s pal Blake Shelton.


Jackson Daly, the son of TODAY host Carson Daly, makes an appearance.

Carson mentioned his son, then 13 years old, interviewing The Voice coach Blake Shelton during his Pop Start segment on Today.

This past week, Jackson hosted a segment on NBC News’s Kids Edition program.

The 49-year-old revealed that she and Blake’s (46-year-old) husband, Jackson, “sat down to talk about” Blake’s “last season” on the singing reality competition.

After interviewing the country music star, The Voice host revealed that the star “had some advice” for his son.

During the interview, Blake also gave Jackson a “tour” of the set for The Voice.

A segment of Jackson’s interview in which Blake offered some stern advice was played on the morning show.

After Jackson asked Blake what guidance he would give to a 13-year-old hopeful for The Voice, Blake gave him the straight dope.

Given that Jackson, who is only 13, is eligible to compete.

I’ve heard you sing, and from what I can tell, a career in music isn’t in your future. Please, for the sake of your own self-worth, don’t put yourself through that, Blake pleaded.

If Jackson doesn’t make it as a singer, perhaps he can follow in his father’s footsteps and become a TV host.

Because of their close relationship, Blake feels safe enough to be open and honest with Jackson.

Carson and Blake are friends, but they’ve also had some shady encounters in the past.


In a recent interview, Carson and Savannah Guthrie, 51, learned something “no one knows” about the chairs that The Voice coaches sit on from Chance The Rapper, one of the newest judges.

Savannah, 51, inquired as to how Chance, 29, had “heard” that the chairs have “climate control” settings, and Chance divulged this information.

I’ve heard rumors that the chairs have climate control, and that nobody, not even Carson, is ever allowed to sit in them. “Tell us about the secret of the chairs,” she prompted Chance.

Chance exposed what he knew.

Chance explained that the “famous red-spinning chairs” from the show have both a heating and a cooling setting hidden underneath them.

Savannah was about to tell Carson how excited she was to learn about the special powers of the seats when Carson cut her off.

“I think that’s because of Blake Shelton,” he said, implying that his co-star was at fault because of their advanced ages.


Since The Voice’s debut in 2011, Carson and Blake have collaborated on the show’s production.

Over the course of 22 seasons together, they’ve developed a strong friendship. They’re also the only two constant characters on the show.

However, Blake has recently revealed that he will be leaving the show after the upcoming 23rd series begins in March of next year.

Carson has expressed his sadness over the departure of his on-screen friend.

The host said, “I hate it,” on Entertainment Tonight back in October.

During our time on The Voice, he and I became very close friends. Though disappointed, I do understand.
