The last set of hopefuls gave a strong show on The Voice‘s final night of blind auditions Monday (10/7). Country acts also seemed to rise from the woodwork compared to previous episodes this season. Coach Blake Shelton filled his last two spots with guitar-wielding singers, Brandon Chase and Brian Pounds. Chase, who graduated college at just 17, performed Hunter Hayes‘ “Wanted.” CeeLo Green fought to be his choice but gave Blake a big “Yes, sir” when asked if he wanted to be a country singer. CeeLo didn’t stand a chance. Pounds performed “Wagon Wheel,” also while strumming a guitar. Coach Christina Aguilera ganged up on Blake to try and sway the 24-year-old contestant toward CeeLo’s team. After that, things got a little heated. Blake described the thought of CeeLo coaching a country act as an “experiment” (you should watch how the drama went down). Pounds decided to “keep it country” and shuffled over to Blake’s corner. CeeLo did end up with a guy Blake really liked. He landed Shawn “Big Sexy” Smith after he sang “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band. Blake loved how he worked the crowd but his team was already full, so Smith was whisked over to CeeLo’s team. Another potential country act could be Lupe Carroll. He performed “If I Were A Carpenter” – a song that’s been covered by several country well-knowns, like Johnny Cash and June Carter. He’ll be studying under CeeLo, so we’ll see what happens. All the teams are locked down, but before the battle rounds begin, “The Voice” is airing a special re-cap episode so fans can catch up on all of the talent this season has to offer. You can catch it all on NBC at 8/7c.

Iconic singer, songwriter and guitarist JOHN FOGERTY is seen rehearsing with members of the Zac Brown Band in advance of their joint performance this past weekend at the band's Southern Ground Music and Food Festival in Nashville, TN . FOGERTY and the ZBB teamed for "Bad Moon Rising" (their collaboration from FOGERTY 's critically acclaimed WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE , released earlier this year), along with other FOGERTY classics from the Creedence Clearwater Revival era such as "Lookin' Out My Back Door," and JOHN 's solo smash hit "Centerfield." Next up for FOGERTY -one of rock's most important artists and a national treasure who's sold over 100 million albums-is his month-long headlining tour which kicks off October 10 in Los Angeles and wraps November 14 with three shows at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. // Continue to the full article

Zac Brown Band’s laid back approach can make it easy to miss when they are actually digging deeper with their lyrics. Their music often sounds designed to fade into the background, particularly on their radio singles, which usually land somewhere between faceless and mildly interesting, but rarely compelling in any meaningful way. “Sweet Annie” manages to break out of their normal groove in a surprising way:   Zac Brown’s vocal performance.  Usually, he sings in a way that is designed to blend in with the instruments and backing vocalists.  On “Sweet Annie”, he gets in touch with his inner Ronnie Milsap, pushing himself with an emotive vocal that reinforces the message of the song. It’s a perfect fit, given that the song is all about a man who has been stuck in the same rut for too long, and is now trying to convince his love that he’s going to change his ways and leave the bottle behind.  When he really lets loose at the mic, the band follows his lead, with a surprisingly prominent fiddle playing two punch to Brown’s one.

Good news anyone going to Zac Brown's Southern Ground Music & Food Festival this weekend, Willie Nelson will be there after all.  Willie Nelson had originally canceled his appearance this weekend along with a few other shows this week after injuring his shoulder and being ordered by a doctor to rest. Now it's been announced that Willie's feeling well enough to go ahead and appear at this weekend's show.  From an announcement I received via email: Willie Nelson & Family have confirmed with Southern Ground Music & Food Festival organizers that they will in fact perform on Saturday, September 28th and have invited their friend Warren Haynes to sit-in on a couple songs. The Southern Ground Music & Food Festival has also announced Kenny Rogers will make a special appearance during Zac Brown Band's "Super Set" on Friday night. These artists join an impressive line-up including Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Eli Young Band, Kacey Musgraves, The Head and the Heart, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, in addition to nightly Zac Brown Band "Super Sets" featuring special sit-in performances by John Fogerty, Jason Mraz, among others, and a special appearance by Kenny Chesney. For more information on Willie Nelson & Family, please contact Elaine Schock at (elaine@shockink.com). For more information on Southern Ground Music & Food Festival, please contact Elizabeth Lutz (elutz@shorefire.com). That's definitely great news for fans who are heading to the festival this weekend. For those of us who aren't able to attend, all the fun will be broadcasting live on AXS-TV. You can find out more info about how to watch by visiting www.axs.tv.
