Blake Shelton may rib on his best pal Adam Levine all day long on the set of The Voice, but when it comes down to it, the country star would be more than happy to step into the Maroon 5 frontman’s shoes.

“There’s a lot of good options,” the newly single singer tells PEOPLE about picking one coach to swap lives with for a day. “[But] I’m gonna say I would pick Adam because he’s married to a super model. Need I say more?”

Asked whether Levine would be surprised by his pick, Shelton quipped, “I don’t give a f–––. That’s who I’m picking and it’s because of his wife. Period.”

In all seriousness, Shelton and Levine – who tied the knot with Victoria’s Secret supermodel Behati Prinsloo in 2014 – have formed a tight friendship since they met on set of NBC’s hit singing competition nine seasons ago.

“Adam and I, believe it or not, spent time together a lot, mostly just talking,” says Shelton. “As much as we work two seasons on this show, he’s right in there working. As soon as there’s a break, he’s got a whole band waiting for him to get back on the road. The guy really doesn’t get much of a break.”

Says the country star: “My favorite part of being on this show is those friendships that I’ve made.”
