The Voice contestant Ben Allen earned a three-chair turn with his cover of Brooks & Dunn’s iconic hit, “Red Dirt Road.”
Blake Shelton was quick to turn his chair, only waiting seven seconds to push his button. Gwen Stefani and John Legend followed with hopes to add Allen to their teams. Although Kelly Clarkson was the only coach who didn’t turn her chair, she predicted that Allen will “probably go to the finale.”
Allen, 42, discovered music when he was 30 years old. His first performance was at an open mic night at a bowling alley.
Shelton called his decision to turn his chair a “no brainer” and couldn’t stop gushing over Allen.

“I miss a good ole fashioned nasally sounding country singer,” Shelton told him before comparing him to Ronnie Dunn.
Even though Legend told Allen he had “tone for days” and Stefani tried to convince him that she was a good choice because she is “kind of country now,” Allen ultimately decided to join Team Blake.
“He’s the kind of country artist that we’ve seen time and time again do really well on the show,” Shelton shared, adding, “He’s everything that the core country music fan loves.”
