Week 3 of the live shows began Monday night on “The Voice” Season 13, with country artist Adam Cunningham representing Team Adam Levine in the Top 10. After appearing in the bottom two for the past couple weeks, Cunningham returned to his country roots with Pam Tillis‘ “Maybe It Was Memphis.” Do you think Cunningham did good enough to advance to next week’s Top 8? Watch Cunningham’s performance from “The Voice” 2017 live shows above.
Our writer Denton Davidson live-blogged the episode, and as he admitted, “Just moments into the song and Adam already looks more comfortable than he has in weeks. This is the style of music he needs to be singing. His raspy voice soars over the chorus and he sounds great. A much needed improvement from the season’s king of the instant save. Adam and Jennifer were on their feet.”
Back in his blind audition of the reality TV show, Cunningham performed “Midnight Rider” and had two coaches turn their chairs around: Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson. The next time we saw Cunningham in the battle rounds, he and Natalie Stovall sang “Boondocks” and Cunningham was declared the winner by his coach Shelton. In the knockouts Cunningham was paired up against Esera Tuaolo, with Tuaolo proving victorious, at which point Cunningham was stolen by Levine. Cunningham’s rendition of “Have a Little Faith in Me” in the playoffs was good enough to send him through to the live shows. He sang “Against All Odds” during Top 12 week and “American Girl” during Top 11 week.
Cunningham is 38 years old and currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Here’s the official NBC bio: “Adam, a session singer in Nashville, grew up singing at churches with his mom and dad before releasing a few Christian albums as a young adult. Things were starting to look good until 2011 when his career went on the fritz as he and his first wife divorced. Adam put music on hold until 2013 when he met his current wife, Courtney. She brought light into Adam’s life and he started writing songs again. A year ago, Adam and Courtney welcomed a baby girl into their family. Now, more than ever, Adam wants to make a successful career singing his music.”
