Blake Says Gwen Saved The Voice in Today’s Nashville Roundup

 

Blake Shelton tells Contact Music that Gwen Stefani has saved “The Voice” with the absence of Adam Levine. ”Having her there, selfishly for me, made me happy, and I think it kind of saved the show with Adam going away, because there’s no way around it: It sucks not having Adam there. I mean, he’s just a major part of that show and my favourite person to kick in the nuts. She’s familiar with it and gets it, and that made me feel better because that show is a complicated thing. When you’re a coach on there … and at the same time you’re also supposed to be entertaining the audience at home, it’s kind of a juggling act.”

Carrie Underwood tells New York magazine that she stays away from vocal coaches. “The only time I have ever sought a vocal coach’s counsel was when I was doing ‘The Sound of Music,’ and that was because it was a completely different kind of music and I wanted to be respectful of what I was singing as much as possible and try to get some of my twang out. But not during anything else. I feel like you just kind of have to find your way through it. I don’t like it when people try to tell me how to sing, because it should be natural.”

Cole Swindell tells the Herald Tribune that he owes his career to Luke Bryan. “I met him back when I was in college, he was already in Nashville writing songs. Without meeting him, I don’t know that I’d have the motivation to write a song because he played something he wrote for me and I remember thinking, ‘Holy cow, you wrote that.’ At this point, I was just playing cover songs in bars and that was what made me say, wow, I have to write songs. Luke is who turned me onto songwriting, the way you could write something yourself and make other people feel like that. It just kind of blew me away, so that was what started it all.”

Luke Combs tells Rolling Stone magazine that he’s finally in control of his nerves. “I’ve come far enough and played enough gigs now that I can handle whatever. I could play a gig on the moon and not be nervous about it.”

Runaway June’s Naomi Cooke tells Billboard magazine that she will consider the group a success if they empower young women. “We’re seeing it in front of our eyes. It’s a big energy boost for us … we’re busting down the door for other women to come through. If that’s the purpose of this band, I’ll take it.”

Michael Ray says the best part of planning his wedding to Carly Pearce is taste testing the catering. “We had to schedule everything] pretty far in advance, but also, we spend a lot of our breakfasts, or our coffee in the morning, looking at this master [calendar] that our lives revolve around. It’s like, ‘Okay, where are you here? Oh, you’re actually off here. Well, I’ll just fly to you.'”
