Megan Rose helped Miley Cyrus make Voice ‘hers-tory’ by becoming the 12 female singer to join her team for Season 13.,

Miley Cyrus made history on The Voice by compiling the first all-female team during the Season 13 blind auditions.

But give a huge assist to Megan Rose.

After all, it was the 20-year-old from San Francisco who decided to join Team Miley, completing her coach’s march into what Miley likes to call hers-tory instead of history.

Not that it was an easy decision. After turning in what Voice Views ranked as the top performance on the final episode of the blind auditions, Megan had to choose between Team Miley and Team Adam Levine.

Adam pulled out all the stops. He even gave Megan a chance to test out the comfort of his big red Voice coaching chair.

“I was super torn the whole time and I remember just sitting there, because I couldn’t decide who to choose,” Megan said in a conference call with the media.

“I just remember sitting there in Adam’s chair and I said a little prayer. I was like, ‘All right, God, give me a sign. Who am I supposed to pick?'”

That’s when Voice coach Jennifer Hudson chimed in, talking about how powerful and unique it would be to have an all-female team on the show.

“I kind of took that as my sign,” Megan said.

Nor, she said, was she worried about having a problem standing out on an all-female team.

“I’m not intimidated by it being an all-female team just because there is that sense of — I don’t know what the word I’m looking for is — but there is that sense of empowerment and we all lift each other up.”

Megan credits her father with introducing her to music at an early age. She describes him as “an incredible musician.” But he was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis before Megan was born. By the the time she was 12, he could no longer play guitar or piano.

But he gave Megan her love of country music, and the student at San Francisco State University says she gets out and performs as much as she can, even though finding venues looking for country singers isn’t easy around her hometown of San Ramon, Calif.

Among her inspirations, she lists Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church and other artists who “have that rasp and kind of bluesy tone to them as well.

“But, growing up, definitely, Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride were my top two inspirations.”

Which meant Megan’s genre of music also helped tip the scales in Miley’s favor when the young singer found herself on the brink of helping make hers-tory.

“Thinking about your career after the show, and who can help you along in the best way — I think that Miley is definitely able to do that for me,” Megan said. “She’s got those country roots and she knows a little bit more about country music.”

Here are Megan’s social media links, followed by a couple of her covers. You can check out snippets of many more on her Instagram account.
