Show airs Wed 2/7 on CBS, and Thursday 2/8 on CMT.

After his performance Blake said, “Hey Red, you know what? You’ve had a hell of a run on this show. I don’t see any reason why it’s got to end here tonight, man. You deserve to be in the finale. You were waving the flag for traditional country music. And I know those fans are out there right now.”
Red Marlow is this season’s ultimate country crooner. Before ‘The Voice’ semi-finals results, here’s what you need to know about Team Blake’s amazing country singer!
“…an excellent job of tapping in to the song’s raw emotions, resulting in a performance that was believable and passionate.”
Finally…a competitor on NBC’s The Voice brings Brooks’ 1990 signature No. 1 “The Dance” back to the Billboard charts…[Red Marlow’s] cover debuts on Hot Country Songs at No. 49, powered by sales of 8,000 downloads and its No. 8 arrival on Country Digital Song Sales.
As he has time and time again, Red once again solidifies himself as a true, old-school country artist with his performance.
Red Marlow, arguably the most country singer left on ‘The Voice,’ proved once again that he is country as he can be when he covered one of Garth Brooks’ most beloved tunes during Monday night’s Top 11 episode.
First up, throwback country performer Marlow took on Vern Gosdin’s 1988 “Chiseled in Stone,” a 1989 CMA Song of the Year winner. With vocals that drew some obvious comparisons to Garth Brooks, Marlow cruised through the song with his smooth twang and punctuated the chorus with some gravelly inflections.
With a sound that channeled Garth Brooks, Marlow’s official performance allowed him to soar through the verses and play up the trills while lending the song his own flair. It proved to be an excellent song choice for Marlow’s twang and rich lower register, besting Megan Rose’s performance of Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break.”
