Morgan Frazier’s Country Twist on Classic Rock Earns Her Slot on Team Blake
Nashville native Morgan Frazier has been singing country songs her whole life, and now she will be doing it alongside one of her heroes, Blake Shelton. The young artist took a break from performing at Nashville’s famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge to audition for The Voice and ended up wowing all four judges with her unique cover of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You To Want Me.”
Frazier took the stage with an acoustic guitar and impressed the crowd with her earthy, yet pretty, vocal style and fresh take on the tune, which she says should be a country love song.
Rival judge Gwen Stefani turned her chair around after just one line, but Shelton pulled the rug out from under her at the last minute, spinning on the final notes. The celebrities argued for their teams, with Shelton using his country prowess as leverage from the get-go.
“That voice had Emmylou Harris in it,” he declared. “One hundred percent country from her heart."
Frazier has been playing country music for years, even recording an album at the age of 9 that sold 30,000 copies door-to-door. She moved to Nashville to pursue her career at just 16. In the end, Stefani couldn’t quite woo Frazier from her country instincts, and Team Blake gained one more.
