Ruby Leigh The Voice
The 16-year-old was a contestant in season 24 of The Voice Blind Auditions.
Clothed in Western wear and carrying an acoustic guitar, Leigh immediately got the audience’s attention when she launched into an energetic rendition of “I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart,” a Country & Western standard originally performed by Patsy Montana way back in 1935.
John Legend was the first to hit his button, followed shortly by Reba McEntire, then Gwen Stefani and Niall Horan. Leigh revealed that she could nail the song’s signature yodeling parts, prompting Legend to give her very high praise when the song ended.
“I’ve truly never heard anything like what you just did,” he said, adding, “You could win The Voice.”
Horan chimed in, “Your energy is just insane. You’ve got four chairs for a reason.”
Reba McEntire mentioned her upbringing as a “third-generation rodeo brat,” as well as her love for Patsy Montana, McEntire tied Leigh’s performance to her own heritage in country music.
“I’m very proud of my heritage that you’re singing this song,” McEntire said. “Matter of fact, my mama could yodel, and she taught me how to yodel.”
Leigh, of course, asked McEntire to show off her yodeling skills, prompting the Queen of Country into a little impromptu performance.
“I think it would be a great idea if we got the audience’s opinion,” McEntire said.
Members of The Voice studio audiences responded by holding up cutouts of bright red hair, mimicking McEntire’s signature locks to signal that they had already taken her side in signing Leigh to her team. By the end of it all, Leigh went with McEntire.
“I didn’t know what I was looking for when I came on The Voice, because I’m new to this,” McEntire explained at the end of the segment. “When Ruby started yodeling, it was like ‘Holy crap, I really want her on my team.’ Ruby can be a star and have a huge following because she’s not afraid to kind of go against the grain of nowadays.”
