Tyler Dickerson & Zach Seabaugh Compete for Blake Shelton’s Vote on ‘The Voice’
Hopefuls Tyler Dickerson and Zach Seabaugh went head to head on The Voice Battle Rounds this week, trying to win over coach Blake Shelton to keep their spot on his team. The singers were assigned Travis Tritt’s "I’m Gonna Be Somebody," an appropriate tune for rising country stars.
Seabaugh, a high school junior and former football player, took his smooth, traditional country voice to the rock-infused song in a graceful way.
“Zach’s got the more traditional voice, but he’s got this charisma,” guest advisor Brad Paisley commented.
Dickerson’s voice was made for this type of tune, though, and he knew it well. Shelton warned the former Nashville recording artist that his familiarity could get him into trouble if he looks too comfortable, like he’s “going through the motions."
Shelton also advised Seabaugh to feel the lyrics and think about what it means.
“Your overall performance is 100 percent better than yesterday,” Shelton said when the duo came back for their final rehearsal.
The guys performed with gusto, impressing the coaches with their vocal abilities, but it was Seabaugh’s pure passion and warm tone that won Shelton over.
Seabaugh will continue on Shelton’s team, moving on to the Knockout rounds. The 16-year-old Georgia native performed an impressive version of Sam Hunt’s “Take Your Time” for his blind audition, getting three of four coaches to turn their chairs around.
