'Coal Miner's Daughter' Audition Has 2 Judges Battling For This Country Girl

18-year-old Hannah Kay impresses the judges with her ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ audition on The Voice. This Texas native brought her country roots to the stage and she did not disappoint. Just watch as she confidently belts out the lyrics to this iconic Loretta Lynn song.

“Well, I was borned a coal miner's daughter
In a cabin, on a hill in Butcher Holler
We were poor but we had love
That's the one thing that daddy made sure of
He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar”

Before Hannah even finished the first verse, judges Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson both turned their chairs around. After that, it was a battle between the two winning judges for Hannah’s unique country voice.

Blake is one of the most successful country artists of the modern decade and Kelly has performed with other country acts such as Reba McEntire and Jason Aldean. Both judges were determined to win over Hannah and add them to their team. Blake celebrated her ‘old school’ voice by saying, “I heard Kelly mention the old style and it’s not really out there anymore. And the truth is, it is out there. It’s just not being celebrated. Hannah, you could be that female.”

Hannah certainly has a talent that we do not see enough of anymore. This young woman would do great with either judge, but ultimately, she decided to join Team Blake. I am so excited to see her next song selection and just how far this future country queen can go.
