Country singer-songwriter Jay Allen was amazing at “The Voice” Blind Auditions 2022.
Allen performed a controlled and resonant version of Cody Johnson’s “‘Til You Can’t,” which resulted in coaches Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani turning their chairs for him, and rightfully so. Allen certainly made Cody Johnson proud with his bold and brave rendition of “Til You Can’t.”
Once he introduced himself, he shared the moving story about losing his mother to Alzheimer’s, and he sang his original heartfelt tune “Blank Stares” in her honor, which resonated well with the four coaches and the audience (both the in-studio audience and the ones that were tuning in at home and/or virtually). One could really hear Allen’s heart in both songs as he allowed his velvet, rumbling voice to shine.
Fortunately, “Blank Stares” struck a chord in the hearts of country listeners and it charted in the Top 5 on the iTunes country charts the following day. He is bound to be a major asset on Team Gwen Stefani. His blind audition on “The Voice” garnered an A rating.
Jay Allen proves that he is a very gifted and versatile singer-songwriter and storyteller, and he has everything it takes to make it far in this year’s “The Voice” competition.
