Once stolen by Adam Levine and twice saved by Voice fans, Adam Cunningham ran out of second chances this week.

The session singer from Nashville, 38 when he auditioned for the show, headed home after losing out to Red Marlow on his third try for an instant save.

But Adam said he’s pleased with the way his time on the show went, presumably even with that Top 12 performance of Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds” that landed him among the lowest vote-getters for the first time.

“I have zero regrets. Zero regrets,” he said during a conference call with the media this week. “If I had to do it all over again, I’d do it exactly the same way.

“And I’m happy with the choices we made and I’m happy with the songs we sang. So yes, no regrets as far as that goes.”

Adam initially joined Team Blake Shelton after his blind audition performance of “Midnight Rider.” He wound up being stolen by Adam Levine following a knockout round match against Esera Tuaolo.

“I didn’t know what to expect,” Adam said, “but, man, we got along like two peas in a pod.

“We both love music. And I don’t think that our relationship ends with this show. I think we’re looking forward to working together from here on out.”

Eventually, it reached the where Adam the coach turned song choice decisions over to Adam the singer.

That led to what Adam called his favorite performance on the show, a Top 10 night cover of “Maybe It Was Memphis.” It also marked the only time Adam was voted through to the next round without having to compete for a save.

What’s next?

Well, new music for sure, says Adam, who released albums in 2007 and 2011 and a trio of singles since.

“I’m going home, you know, and strike while the iron’s hot,” he said. “You know, do some booking, do some recording, and get out there and put the music out for the people that got me this far.”

And what type of music can fans expect.

“They can expect country soul rock,” Adam said.
