The two-night “The Voice” Season 13 finale began Monday night on NBC, with country artist Red Marlow representing Team Blake Shelton. Each of the four finalists performed duets with their coaches, and Marlow and Shelton opted for a fun version of Brad Paisley‘s “I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song).” Do you think Marlow did good enough to win this season of “The Voice” and join the list of past winners? Watch Red Marlow and Blake Shelton’s duet performance from “The Voice” 2017 live shows above.
Our writer Denton Davidson live-blogged the episode, and as he noted, “It’s fitting to hear these two break out in a classic country ditty about fishing. Red sounded great at the top of the song but portions of the middle seemed to be drowned out by the band. Honestly, I find this underwhelming but it may perfectly cater to Red’s fan base.”
Back in his blind audition of the reality TV show, Marlow performed “Swingin'” and two of the coaches turned their chairs around: Shelton and Miley Cyrus. The next time we saw Marlow in the battle rounds, he and Ryan Scripps sang “Fishin’ in the Dark” and Marlow was declared the winner by his coach Shelton. In the knockouts Marlow was paired up against Megan Rose, with Marlow proving victorious thanks to his performance of “Outskirts of Heaven.” Marlow’s rendition of “Chiseled in Stone” in the playoffs was good enough to send him through to the live shows. He sang “The Church on Cumberland Road” during Top 12 week, “The Dance” during Top 11 week, “That’s What I Love About Sunday” during Top 10 week and “Go Rest High on That Mountain” during Top 8 week.
Marlow is 40 years old and currently resides in Dickson, Tennessee. Here’s the 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.”
