The Voice returns Monday, Feb. 26, with Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson as coaches and a new blind audition twist.
Check back then and throughout Season 14 for complete coverage on Voice Views. Meanwhile, here’s a bit about Bransen.
* Bransen is from Blue Springs, Missouri, and says on his website that he became a fan of country music at an early age.
* He picked up guitar in college and began songwriting and performing around the Kansas City area.
* Rather than follow the latest trends in country music, Bransen says in that bio that he’s committed to delivering “true country” music.
* Over the years, he has opened for The Band Perry, Chris Young, Lee Brice, John Rich and many others.
* He released a single called “Don’t Go There” in 2011 and a four-track EP called “Hat” later the same year.
* Brensen moved his family from Missouri to Nashville in order to better pursue a career in country music.
* Early last year, he launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new EP, but it failed to reach its fund-raising goal.
* At the time, he said his new music “is inspired by hard-working, middle-class families.” You can check out three originals on his YouTube channel and a more recent post of a song called “From the Ground Up” on his Facebook page. Below, you can check out Bransen singing “A Little Lot.”
