If the name Barrett Baber sounds familiar to you, it may be because he just became a part of Team Blake on season 9 of The Voice

Baber was one of the first contestants on The Voice to get all four coaches to turn for his blind audition of "Angel Eyes" by The Jeff Healey Band. He caught the attention of the judges for his distinct "country soul" style that he's trying to pioneer. All four judges fought hard to have Baber on their team, but he ultimately ended up choosing Blake Shelton as his coach.

But before appearing on The Voice, Baber has been posting videos of himself singing to YouTube, including a video of him singing the Conway Twitty hit "I'd Love To Lay You Down."

"I'd  Love To Lay You Down" was released by Twitty in 1980 as the debut single from his album Heart and Soul. The song became Twitty's 24th number one hit, reaching the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

Baber's version of the song is definitely different than Twitty's, but not in a bad way. Baber once again applies his country soul style to his rendition of "I'd Love To Lay You Down," turning it into a whole new song entirely. 

No one could ever top Twitty's version of the song, but Baber's rendition is incredible in its own right.

Watch Baber singing "I'd Love To Lay You Down" in the video below, and stay tuned for new music from him on season 9 of The Voice! 

LYRICS BELOW

There's a lot of ways of sayin' what I want to say to you
There's songs and poems and promises and dreams that might come true
But I won't talk of starry skies or moonlight on the ground
I'll come right out and tell you,I'd just love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means just havin' you around
Oh darlin', how I'd love to lay you down

There's so many ways your sweet love's made this house into a home
You've got a way of doin' little things that turn me on
Like standin' in the kitchen in your faded cotton gown
With your hair all up in curlers, I'd still love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means just havin' you around
Oh darlin', how I'd love to lay you down

When a whole lot of Decembers are showin' in your face
Your auburn hair has faded and silver takes its place
You'll be just a lovely and I'll still be around
And if I can I know that I'll still love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means just havin' you around
Oh darlin', how I'd love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell ya all the things my woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means just havin' you around
Oh darlin', how I'd love to lay you down
