For those who've never heard of Muskogee (or Merle Haggard, for that matter), the 11th largest city in the state of Oklahoma was quickly put on the national radar when family country duo the Swon Brothers appeared on the fourth season of hit talent show The Voice. The bros Zach and Colton, under the coaching of fellow Okie Blake Shelton, placed third that season, but won both a recording contract and a legion of entranced fans following their run on the program.
The boys paid a recent visit to the Ram Country studios, where they delivered a heartfelt rendition of the tune that defined them to Voice viewers: Loggins and Messina’s 1971 hit “Danny’s Song."
The Swons' first performance of this ballad last year had the show's judges raving: Usher noting, "You're making us love and understand country in a way that's really great"; Adam Levine gushing about their "incredible rendition"; and Blake Shelton simply noting the song capped "the biggest night that [the brothers] have had on 'The Voice.'"
That's not all, though. The Swons made sure to rock Ram with a second performance, this time of their latest single, "Later On," which they released at the end of 2013 and debuted on The Voice.
The Swon Brothers are currently working on their debut full-length release, which is scheduled to hit stores later this year.
