The knockouts finally began this week on “The Voice” Season 13, with country artist Adam Cunningham performing Chris Stapleton‘s “Either Way” for Team Blake Shelton. Cunningham was paired up against Esera Tuaolo, with Tuaolo proving victorious and knocking out Cunningham. Thankfully, Cunningham was later stolen by Adam Levine, so he remains in the reality TV competition. Watch Cunningham’s performance from “The Voice” knockouts above.
Back in his blind audition, Cunningham performed “Midnight Rider” and had two coaches turn their chairs around: 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. Special adviser Kelly Clarkson helped Cunningham and all of the other remaining artists in the knockouts. At the end of this round only 20 artists will remain and perform in the live shows.
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.”
