The Voice Season 10: Mary Sarah and Kata Hay Win Knockouts Covering Country Queens

The Voice Season 10: Mary Sarah and Kata Hay Win Knockouts Covering Country Queens

Season 10 of The Voice has certainly been a treat for country music fans so far. 

The first round of Knockouts last week gave us covers of Martina McBride’s “A Broken Wing,” the Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier” and recent pop-country phenom Sam Hunt’s “Take Your Time” as well as a countryfied rendition of “Bring It On Home to Me.”

Before that, contestants Mary Sarah and Justin Whisnant battled with the Conway and Loretta hit duet “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.”

And last night (April 4) the country hits kept on coming with songs made famous by three of the most prominent female singers in country music history. 

Brittany Kennell Sings Shania Twain’s “You’re Still the One”

This interpretation of the Shania tribute to enduring love doesn’t fix what isn’t broken, but Brittany’s unique voice lends it a delightfully folky twang.

Mary Sarah Sings Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)”

Finding inspiration in an earlier era seems to be Mary Sarah’s specialty. Like Brittany, Mary Sarah doesn’t mess with a working formula on this sassy Loretta Lynn hit. 

Mary Sarah’s energetic performance was enough to keep her in the game, but Brittany ended up on the wrong end of the Knockout and got sent home. 

Kata Hay Sings Reba’s “Why Haven’t I Heard From You”

Whether or not Kata Hay’s hair is naturally red, her red-hot performance of one of our favorite Reba McEntire songs has got our attention.  

So far on The Voice Kata has been coming back week after week covering strong, independent female artists like Melissa Etheridge and Gretchen Wilson.

We’re looking forward to see what she sings next!
