Representing her hometown of Santa Rosa, California which suffered a devastating fire shortly before her audition, 17-year-old Dallas Caroline made her community proud when she earned the last spot on country music superstar Blake Shelton‘s team.
“When I see cowboy boots I usually run for the hills,” admitted Levine. “But I don’t care Dallas, because you’re awesome and I’m gonna fight for you!”
“When I see somebody young, like you, performing ‘Always On My Mind,’ I mean that’s one of the most sacred country songs of all time. And I can go, ‘Wow. There’s our next LeAnn Rimes, there’s our next Tanya Tucker, there’s our next hero in country music.’ That’s why I want to be your coach on this show,” Shelton said.
After hearing his beautiful pitch, Caroline chose to join Team Blake, filling in the final spot.
