Week 4 of the live shows began Monday night on “The Voice” Season 13, with country artist Adam Cunningham representing Team Adam Levine in the Top 8. After previously being in the bottom two, Cunningham now has Levine’s blessing to choose his own songs, and he opted for Lonestar‘s “I’m Already There.” Do you think Cunningham did good enough to advance to next week’s Top 4 season finale? Watch Adam Cunningham’s performance from “The Voice” 2017 live shows above.
Our writer John Benutty live-blogged the episode, and as he admitted, “The slow pace of the song really allows Adam to open his throat and let the smoothest parts of his voice come through. He sounds great (maybe better than he has so far this season?), but I wonder if the dual pianos with the string band and then him just standing still at the mic might be too drowsy of a performance to inspire the amount of votes he’ll need to jump into the top four.”
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, “American Girl” during Top 11 week and “Maybe It Was Memphis” during Top 10 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.”
