Meghan Linsey Goes ‘Home’ on ‘The Voice’ Top 10 [WATCH]
Dressed in a black jumpsuit, Linsey sang the song's first verse -- "Rolling down the road / Going nowhere / Guitar packed in the trunk ..." -- accompanied by a guitarist, before the full band joined in for the rest of the song.
Coaches Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera told Linsey that the performance was her best so far; Aguilera added, "Your vocals were insanity." Linsey also earned some Twitter praise from Broussard himself:
“I spent so many years investing in the Steel Magnolia brand that people don’t really know me as Meghan Linsey on my own,” the singer says of her decision to appear on the competition show. “And I feel like it’s almost impossible to be a female and get played on country radio now. I don’t have a ton of money in the bank. I was getting to a point where I can’t do this independently anymore. That’s why it became really clear when [The Voice] called that this was the right decision."
"Home" was the first single off of Broussard's 2004 album, Carencro, and became a Top 40 hit on Billboard's U.S. Adult chart for the "Bayou soul" singer-songwriter.
Linsey's cover of "Home" is available for download on iTunes. The next The Voice elimination round airs Tuesday night (April 21) at 8PM ET on NBC.
