If you are keeping up with the television show, The Voice, you will notice Kelsie May of Louisa, Kentucky, is featured on Team Blake (Blake Shelton). Last night, during the Battle Rounds, Kelsie competed against Brenna Yaeger as they performed Reba McEntire’s hit song, “Fancy.” I will honesty say that I dig Kelsie’s east Kentucky mountain soul vocals. I do believe that whether she goes far or not in this competition, she has got the ears of this listener of her music. Be sure to follow her over on Facebook at www.facebook.com/kelsiemay. Stay tune as we keep up with this great talent from here in Kentucky!
