Not many people can step on to “The Voice” stage and sing John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery,” but Krista Hughes sure did. The 21-year-old native West Virginian grew up in a small coal-mining town listening to Merle Haggard and George Jones. You can hear those influences in her voice and stylings as she sings and she has a truly unique sound for today’s country music scene.
Hughes hit the stage in boots and a belt buckle the size of Cincinnati and earned a four-chair turn before choosing, you guessed it– #TeamBlake.
John Prine even approved of the performance.
You know who else Prine often approves of? Kacey Musgraves.
