On Tuesday night’s episode of “The Voice” Season 13, country singer Red Marlow belted out John Anderson‘s “Swingin'” and earned a spot on Blake Shelton‘s team. Miley Cyrus also turned her chair during Marlow’s performance, arguing that she was a “strong fighter” and looking to mentor a country star, but he ultimately went with Shelton. Watch Marlow’s “The Voice” blind audition recap video above.
As for the other coaches, Adam Levine said that he would have turned his chair around, but that he knew based on Marlow’s voice that Shelton was the coach for him. And new coach Jennifer Hudson simply wasn’t a fit, either. Before Marlow made his decision, Shelton told him, “To have a guy like you that wants to come out here and represent country music from the era that you and I grew up in, that’s exciting to me.”
Shelton has already mentored five “Voice” contestants to victories, so might Marlow be his record sixth? Shelton’s previous champs on NBC’s reality TV show were Jermaine Paul (Season 2), Cassadee Pope (Season 3), Danielle Bradbery (Season 4), Craig Wayne Boyd (Season 7) and Sundance Head (Season 11).
Marlow is 40 years old and currently resides in Dickson, Tennessee. Here is his official NBC bio: “Red is as country as it gets, with a love of skeet shooting, fishing and hunting. His dad is a preacher, so growing up he was exposed to a lot of bluegrass and gospel. At 22, Red decided to move to Nashville to further his music career and ended up becoming a demo singer. He was fortunate to make a living singing songs for songwriters for about 15 years, but being a musician is difficult and he’s struggled to break through as a solo artist. Recently, Red took a step back from music in order to support his family. He started his own construction company called Mr. Fix All, and though he enjoys it, The Voice has given him one last shot to see if he can make music his full-time job.”
