Alabama Contestant Emma Caroline Shines With ‘Kacey Musgraves’ Cover on ‘The Voice’: Watch

Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson know country when they hear it. Emma Caroline is country.

The 25-year-old Alabama native stepped onto The Voice stage Monday night (March 8) for the Blind Auditions, and left a strong impression with the coaches.

Caroline covered Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn”, earning a quick turn from Shelton. Clarkson followed shortly after.

In the wrap-up, John Legend made his excuse for not spinning. Once Shelton pressed his buzzer, he explained, there was no chance the contestant would pick anyone else.

Legend wasn’t wrong.

“I’m so excited because you bring something that we don’t get to see that often,” explained Shelton, attempting to lasso the country hopeful. “You have more of a ‘mountain’ sounding voice, which I love.”

Country music has been Shelton’s world since he was a teen. “Now what’s exciting for me is to find new young talent,” he enthused.

It was a winning sales pitch.
