When you are on a singing competition show and each and every week you are being scrutinized by millions of people, it can be difficult to know when to stay in your lane and when not to.
Here’s our advice to “The Voice” front-runner Mary Sarah: stay in your lane.
Team Blake favorite Mary Sarah’s voice shines the most when she is singing that old-time, traditional country music that we just don’t get to hear much anymore. On the May 2 episode of “The Voice” in which the Top 10 contestants performed, Mary Sarah earned much praise from the coaches for the country music standard “Stand By Your Man” by Tammy Wynette.
“You have no idea how you just engaged the entire country audience out there,” her coach, Blake Shelton, said after the performance. “I mean, a young, 20-year-old girl up here singing a Tammy Wynette song and blowing the roof off this place! Yee haw!”
“That was amazing,” fellow coach Adam Levine said. “That’s a major song, and it is a very difficult song in all ways. Since the Blinds, I haven’t seen anything that really fit you quite as well as this. And it was just incredible timing.”
