‘The Voice’ Contestants Patrick Thomas, Elenowen and Jeff Jenkins Moving Up iTunes Charts
Country-leaning artists Patrick Thomas, Elenowen and Jeff Jenkins are among the contestants on 'The Voice' who are already making waves on the iTunes charts with their audition performances and previous releases.
Thomas' performance of Tim McGraw's 'Live Like You Were Dying' has cracked the Top 100 on iTunes' Top Country Songs chart. On his Twitter page, Thomas is offering chart updates on the song, urging his fans to "keep it moving" and "keep it climbing."
Elenowen may be benefiting the most from their exposure on 'The Voice,' as their 2010 debut disc, 'Pulling Back the Veil,' has rocketed up into the Top 5 of iTunes' Top Singer-Songwriter Albums chart. At the time of publication, their album had reached the No. 2 spot. The duo's version of the Swell Season's 'Falling Slowly' from 'The Voice' is also available on iTunes. Like Thomas, Elenowen are also using their Twitter account to express their excitement over their success on iTunes.
Jenkins, meanwhile, has broken into the Top 30 on iTunes' Top Country Songs list. His version of Rascal Flatts' 'Bless the Broken Road,' as performed on the show's season premiere, also has made it into the Top 150 on iTunes' overall Top Songs tally.
'The Voice' airs on Tuesdays at 9PM ET, and you can check back in with Taste of Country for weekly episode recaps.
