Last week, NBC’s The Voice contestant, Mary Sarah, experienced her first ever No. 1 song on iTunes. This week, the young country music artist channeled her old soul with the intention of creating a top-of-the-chart streak.
The lone female on Team Blake ventured away from her typical traditional country songs for a couple of weeks, choosing the more mainstream “So Small” (Carrie Underwood) and “Johnny and June” (Heidi Newfield). However, feeling that it was time to remind America why she received the first four-chair turnaround of the season, Mary Sarah found a song that she believed fans would appreciate as much as they did “Where The Boys Are.”
She could not have been more right.
Selecting Tammy Wynette‘s “Stand By Your Man” as the song to keep momentum going, Mary Sarah surprisingly became the first ever The Voice competitor to perform the most covered country song in history. The stunning artist showed off her lower register, eventually bursting the seams of the song and impressing the coaches, audience, and at-home viewers with power and vibrato that they had yet to see from the Music City sweetheart.
