About Corey Kent White
From our live blog:
Corey is from Oklahoma and started playing shows when he was 11-years-old, and eventually became the lead singer in a group called Oklahoma Stomp. He was with the group for five years, until the band broke up and everyone went their separate ways. His big break was five years ago when he got to sing “Milk Cow Blues” with Willie Nelson after being brought up onstage at a concert. He knew in that moment that his dream was to play the same big stages that legends like Willie Nelson played.
-Corey sings “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band, and it’s one of the most instantly confident, instantly strong performances I’ve seen on this show in some time. I’m actually STUNNED that he isn’t an immediate chair-turner. The coaches basically spend the whole audition hemming and hawing, and trying to get each of the other coaches to push their button.
-Adam recaps how all the coaches were trying to get one another to push their buttons. He endorses Pharrell, who says he sees a lot of potential in Corey. Blake says that one of the most exciting experiences he’s had on this show has been working with Oklahoma boys The Swon Brothers, and really drives home the Oklahoma connection. Pharrell decides he can’t allow this, so he takes off his jacket and approaches Corey onstage with Adam to make a pitch, saying that while he may not know country music, he knows all sorts of music. “I’ve toured in Oklahoma!” he says. “Go back and look at the tapes and see who pressed their button first!” Adam then continues the closing argument in The People v. Blake Shelton, saying that while Danielle Bradbery did win Season 4, The Swon Brothers he’s being compared to finished in third. “Maybe you want to think before you make this decision and make your home on a team that has a place for you,” he says, in his endorsement of Team Pharrell. Blake fires back by saying that while the Swon Brothers didn’t win, he did everything he could to make sure they got a record deal. Pharrell gets the last word by saying he’ll do his homework to be the best possible coach for Corey. Corey thinks it over but says there’s just something about those boys from Oklahoma…
Corey chose Team Blake Shelton! Go Team Oklahoma!
