A country singer from Oklahoma wow’ed The Voice coaches with her cover of Lee Ann Womack’s “Does My Ring Burn Your Finger.”

The teams were filling up quickly as coaches Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson each filled their remaining spots, however, John Legend and Gwen Stefani were still on the hunt for their final team members.

Bailey Rae from Oklahoma, who happens to perform at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Tishomingo, joined Team Legend after he was the only coach to turn his chair for her performance.

Clarkson compared her to Lee Ann Womack, while Shelton promised to steal her in the battle rounds.

“When Kelly hits her button to steal you, I will already have my cards on the table,” Shelton said. “We’re neighbors and this is meant to be.”

Legend was excited to welcome his first country contestant to his team, telling her, “You have the distinction of being the first country artist that I have the privilege of coaching.”
