Natalie Stovall Reveals That She Auditioned for ‘The Voice’ Season 13
Expect to see up-and-coming country singer Natalie Stovall on The Voice this season. Stovall shared via Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday (Sept. 12) that she tried out for the reality singing competition, but had to keep the news under wraps until now.
"Y’ALL. I’ve been laying low for a bit and it’s been SO HARD to keep it a secret. But FINALLY I can let you in on what’s been going on!" she says on social media."The journey starts with the Season Premiere on Sept. 25!!! Let’s all watch together!"
Stovall's fans are clearly excited to see her on the show, with many calling her "amazing," "talented," "incredible" and "a real caring person," among several more positive attributes. The singer and master fiddle player is part of the band Natalie Stovall and the Drive, who released a self-titled EP in 2015 and another called Heartbreak in 2016. Their 2014 single "Baby Come on With It" reached the Top 50 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart. Their second single "Mason Jar," was released later that year.
“It wasn’t necessarily an immediate ‘this is the band,’ that chemistry took a while, and we were playing tons of shows on the road,” Stovall tells Taste of Country about the band's formation in a 2014 interview. “After just a little bit, we started to realize there was something different, something special, about this group.” In 2016, she also toured with Kelleigh Bannen and Ruthie Collins on the Three Girls Rock Into a Bar trek.
Fellow country star Blake Shelton heads back to the coaches chair, alongside returning judges Miley Cyrus and Adam Levine, plus first time judge Jennifer Hudson, when Season 13 of The Voice premieres on Sept. 25 at 8PM ET on NBC.
