‘The Voice’ is back and it’s gearing up to be the best season yet! During last night’s season 10 premiere, we saw country star and ‘The Voice’ coach Blake Shelton acquire his first team members of the season. One of which was Mary Sarah, a 20-year old aspiring star from Houston.

The talented singer landed herself a spot on Team Blake after a blind audition that included a stunning rendition of the Connie Francis hit “Where The Boys Are.” The performance resulted in a four-chair turn and a battle ensued over which coach would have the honor of working with the young singer. 

It turns out that Mary Sarah already has quite a list of accomplishments on her musical resume. With more than 70,000 followers on Twitter, the singer has performed with some of country music’s biggest stars including Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and the Oak Ridge Boys. 

Prior to Mary Sarah making her coach choice, Blake Shelton admitted that he had heard of her through her connection to the Oak Ridge Boys

“You actually sound like you came from that era. And, it’s going to be so refreshing to hear somebody bring that era of music back to a stage like this, then to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Let’s do that,” Blake said.

“We’ll get the Oaks. Let’s get the Oaks to come sing with you,” Blake proposed before referencing his fellow coaches. ” They don’t know the Oaks. They don’t even know what I’m talking about. They think I’m talking about a tree right now.”

In the end, it was no surprise that Mary Sarah chose Blake Shelton to be her coach. We can’t wait to follow the singer’s ‘The Voice’ journey. Hear her beautiful cover of Connie Francis’ 1960 hit “Where The Boys Are” below.
