26-year-old Tori MIller from Arkansas put her love for traditional country music on full display with her cover of “When You Say Nothing At All” during the final round of NBC’s The Voice blind auditions on Monday (Nov. 2).
Miller’s vocals seemed to impress all of the coaches, however, Gwen Stefani was the only coach to turn her chair. Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson’s teams were already full, therefore they were unable to participate.
Stefani was thrilled to welcome a country singer to her team.

“I love your voice and I love how calm you are,” Stefani told Miller. “It was just so soothing and I was like, ‘yeah, I wanna listen to that. I wanna hang out with her.'”
“When You Say Nothing At All” was co-written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. The song was originally made famous by the late Keith Whitley in 1988. Alison Krauss & Union Station recorded a cover of the song in 1995 for a Keith Whitley tribute album. The latter won the CMA for Single of the Year in 1995.
