Ducote Talmage The Voice

Alabama native Ducote Talmage is a contestant on season 25 of The Voice. For his blind auditions, he sang Morgan Wallen’s “Sand In My Boots.”

After just a few bars of his audition, Talmage earned two chair turns, one from John Legend and one from country duo Dan + Shay. While host Carson Daly expected Reba McEntire to turn her chair as well, McEntire and fellow Coach Chance the Rapper simply listened, later singling out some “pitchy” moments in Talmage’s audition that kept them from hitting the button.

Still, that gave Talmage the choice between two very different Coaches, and Legend knew from the beginning that he’d have to talk his way into the singer’s good graces.”

John complimented Ducote on a “cool tone” and the little scratch in his vocals, calling it “a lovely voice to listen to.” Dan said his voice sounded like he should be on country radio. Ducote opted to join Team Dan + Shay.

“Dan + Shay’s team is looking formidable,” Legend said after the audition. “I’m impressed, they’ve done a good job, but I will take advantage of their youth and inexperience, and I will beat them.”

He took part in the blind auditions alongside fellow competitors RLetto, Anya True, Olivia Rubini, L. Rodgers, Val T. Webb, Elyscia Jefferson, Zeya Rae, Ashley Bryant, Kamalei Kawa’a, Asher HaVon, Tae Lewis, AJ Harvey, Kyle Schuesler, Bri Fletcher, Josh Sanders, Mafe, Karen Waldrup, William Alexander, Alyssa Crosby and Serenity Arce.
