After several weeks on The Voice, viewers have gotten used to hearing Team Blake's country/soul singer Barrett Baber tackle one emotional ballad after another. But this week Baber switched things up, choosing instead to sing an upbeat, soulful rendition of a classic country hit.  

This week, Baber sang Tanya Tucker's signature song, "Delta Dawn," which was released in 1972 when she was only 13 years old. The song went on to snag the 6th spot on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Singles chart that year. 

For his rendition, Baber made the personal decision to alter the style of the song, which received coach Blake Shelton's enthusiastic approval. Rather than perform the song in its traditional, country style, Baber added in some rock beats and soulful elements to create a whole new arrangement.

Baber has become known for his incredible stage presence, with Shelton often comparing him to Garth Brooks as a result. But in his "Delta Dawn" performance, Baber truly shines on stage, completely captivating the audience.

He starts off singing slowly, but it isn't far into the song before the tempo picks up, and he is joined on stage by a choir, which adds a slightly gospel feel to the song.

Baber's performance brought the crowd to their feet, and made Shelton so excited that he kept interrupting the other coaches by shouting "Yeah!" over and over.

When Shelton finally got his chance to speak, he praised Baber for his performance, telling him that he sang a song that had nothing to do with church, but he "took us all to church."

Shelton wasn't the only one who congratulated Baber for a job well done. Tucker took to her Facebook following Baber's performance to show her support. 

Barrett Baber just performed Delta Dawn on The Voice! It's always great to hear new versions of that song. Great job Barrett!

LYRICS BELOW

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

She's forty-one and her daddy still calls her, 'baby'
All the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy
'Cause she walks down town with a suitcase in her hand
Looking for a mysterious dark-haired man

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever laid eyes on
Then a man of low degree stood by her side
And promised her he'd take her for his bride

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?
