Don’t Close Your Eyes by Keith Whitley – 22 – Dover FL – He has a dang mullet. Right off that bat, he’s hard to take seriously YET. The parents want Blake to turn, but they really all they want IS A TURN. He got serious about music in 10th grade. He’s opened for some big acts. Uh oh Kelly uses her block button. John turns second. Nick turns. And then Blake OOOOPS BLOCKED. He’s got a that nice country tone with a twang and a nasally sound. Blake, who once sported a hideous mullet, calls Kezie’s a “killer mullett.” Everybody loves that Blake is blocked. Nick is back with his little book of notes. He’s got receipts. All hell is breaking loose between Kelly and Nick. John had a country singer on his team last season, and he had no idea what to do with her. Kelly is probably the best pick here. She won with a country 1 chair turn (Jake Hoot, season 17). Blake, mad that Kelly blocked him is TEAM NICK. – 4 chair turn, Kelly blocks Blake, Kenzie picks Kelly
