Even though this powerhouse is on Team Adam Levine, it doesn't mean she is going astray from her country roots. The Voice contestant, Shelby Brown has proved herself to be one of the strongest artists on season 9, and showcased that talent with her live performance of "In Color".

The song, "In Color" was co-written and recorded by country artist, Jamey Johnson in 2008. Released as a single off his album, The Lonesome Song, it became Johnson's first top ten hit. The popular acoustic ballad tells an emotional story of a grandfather showing his grandson photos from the past. The single also received awards for Song Of The Year at both CMA and ACM awards. 

The week prior to her performance, Brown was saved by votes from viewers. This made her return to the stage a little more difficult, giving coach Adam the chance to utilize his best mentor skills. He helped Brown to "get out of her head", and focus on moving forward in the competition. 

With a newfound level of confidence, Brown knocked this one out of the park! You could hear her honesty and passion in the lyrics, and not only impressed her own coach, but caught the attention of Team Blake Shelton“You’re such a powerful singer.” Shelton remarked after her performance. She sang beautifully!

LYRICS BELOW

I said Grandpa what's this picture here
It's all black and white, and it ain't real clear
Is that you there, he said yeah, I was eleven
And times were tough, back in thirty-five
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
A cotton farm, in the Great Depression

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

This one here was taken overseas
In the middle of hell, in nineteen forty-three
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath
That was my tail gunner ole' Johnny McGee
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans
And he had my back, right through the day we left

If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

A picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color

And this one is my favorite one
This is me and grandma in the, summer sun
All dressed up, the day we said our vows
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
And that rose was red and her eyes were blue
And just look at that smile, I was so proud

That's the story of my life
Right there in black and white

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

Yeah a picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color
(Should've seen it in color)
