Wow! Prepare to be blown away by this 16-year-old's powerful voice. 

During the second week of the 'Knockout' rounds on NBC's The Voice, Team Blake's Emily Ann Roberts captivated the crowd with a stunning rendition of the Dixie Chicks, "Cowboy Take Me Away". 

The moment Emily walked on stage and began singing a sweet rendition of the emotional song, we knew it was going to be good.  

The Tennessee native proved she has her eyes on the prize with the breathtaking performance, and coach Blake Shelton definitely noticed. Emily won the knockout round against her team member, Nadjah Nicole, who sang Alicia Key's "A Woman's Worth". Blake said he put the two together because they both had delicate voices. 

"Cowboy Take Me Away" was released in 1999 as the second single from the Dixie Chicks album, Fly. The song was a huge success for the group, topping the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart in early 2000. 

It was no surprise that the aspiring country singer chose this iconic song for her performance, and we're glad she did - talk about amazing!

Emily will advance to the live performance round with 20 other superstar-hopefuls. We can't wait to see what she has for us next! 

Check out the performance below.

LYRICS BELOW

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me I said

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except for maybe you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yes it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away.
Closer to you
