The Swon Brothers Enjoying Rise in Popularity Following ‘The Voice’
The Swon Brothers made it into the Top 3 on Season 4 of ‘The Voice,’ with Blake Shelton as their coach. But while the show’s top prize went to fellow Team Blake contestant Danielle Bradbery, Zach and Colton Swon still say they came out as winners.
“We’ve always had a fan base there, in our home state, but now we’re going places that I’ve never been to before, and people are buying every ticket,” Zach tells The Boot. “It’s insane. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
The brothers say that meeting new fans has been one of the best perks of being on the reality TV show. “Everywhere we go now feels like home,” Colton adds. “We’re playing Swoncerts everywhere, and when we step off the bus, people are hugging our necks and shaking our hands, and everybody feels like they know us, and we feel like we know everyone, so it feels like we’re in Oklahoma.”
The two hint that they are working on a new project, but they aren’t revealing too many details just yet. “It’s in the works,” hints Colton. “We have some very big news coming out very soon. We aren’t allowed to say yet, but we’re blessed. That’s all I can say, and it’s coming out soon. Hopefully you’ll hear something on the radio by the end of this year. We can’t wait.”
Zach and Colton spend most of their time together, on and off the road. But even though they now have to spend plenty of that time in close quarters, as they cross the country on a tour bus, they insist they are closer than ever.
“We’ve heard a few people say it’s really weird how close you guys are, and I think it’s an unusual amount of closeness,” Zach notes.
“We don’t let music come before our brotherhood, and if we do that, I think we’ll be okay,” Colton continues. “Brothers before business, and it’s always worked for us.”
The Swon Brothers have upcoming shows in Oklahoma, Texas and California. Keep track of their concert schedule here.
