Evansville Native Advances On The Voice

Despite being billed from Nashville, The Voice  contestant Cherie Oakley is originally from right here in Evansville.  She didn’t impress the coaches at first with her version of Miranda Lambert’s “Gun Powder and Lead.”  Lambert’s fiance, Blake Shelton said he waited for her to “beat Miranda,” but in his opinion, she never did.  Luckily, Oakley got Christina Aguilera’s attention, as she turned her chair around at the last second to invite Cherie to her team. 

Sidebar: If you’re confused by the premise of this show, so am I, but now that all four coaches have their team, we should see the concept become more clear.

Back to Oakley, she has been a back-up singer for Gretchen Wilson and Carrie Underwood, plus written the hit, ”Turn On The Radio” for Reba.  I look forward to seeing what this hometown girl does on “The Voice.”
