  • What is wrong with you?!
  • -I'm gonna fight you! -What is wrong with you?
  • I'm gonna fight you.
  • Stay in your area.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Until tonight.
  • Hey! [ Laughs ]
  • Boom.
  • Some things just come out sometimes. Sorry.
  • What is your name, and where did you come from?
  • My name's Zach Bridges.
  • I'm 28, and I'm from Pearl, Mississippi.
  • Okay. Pearl, Mississippi.
  • Pearl, Mississippi. You ever been there?
  • Probably. I've been around the world, Blake.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • I've had a long career.
  • I've been on the show -- This is my fourth season.
  • I learned a lot about country music,
  • but I feel like, genre-wise,
  • it doesn't really matter because it's not r--
  • [ Coughing ] Bullcrap!
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Sorry. I'll get a drink.
  • You never know, because it's really just about picking songs.
  • Anyone can do that. You just go on the Internet
  • and look for country songs, we talk about it.
  • [ Laughter ] But, honestly, I wanted to turn around
  • because you're a really good singer.
  • I really love that song. I'm a huge fan of Blake Shelton.
  • I think he's -- he's actually my favorite singer
  • in the whole world.
  • I have no country artists,
  • and it would be an amazing experience for me and for you.
  • Thank you.
  • I didn't push my button because, well,
  • I know that's Blake's song, so...
  • [ Laughter ]
  • I can only take so much rejection.
  • I don't want to take it when I know it's coming.
  • Have a great time.
  • Thank you.
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • Zach, I really enjoyed your performance.
  • My only problem was the song selection.
  • It was just... [ Laughter ]
  • Your voice deserves so much better.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Finally, the knives really come out, don't they?
  • [ Laughter ]
  • You don't have to hope that I'll get on Google...
  • [ Laughter ] ...and type in
  • the word "country songs"
  • and try to help you connect with a genre.
  • You're mean. You started it.
  • I know, but it was worth a try.
  • I never would've dreamed how important
  • that song would've been in my life.
  • I moved to Nashville when I was 17.
  • The only thing I knew in the world
  • was that I wanted to be a country singer.
  • I just graduated high school,
  • and two weeks later, I was sitting in Nashville.
  • And my first job was painting a house for Mae Boren Axton,
  • whose son was Hoyt Axton --
  • living in her driveway on his tour bus,
  • and he invited me onto his bus one day,
  • and he sang me that song.
  • And little did I know,
  • a 17-year-old kid from Ada, Oklahoma,
  • came there, didn't know what I was gonna do,
  • and within no time, I'd found what would go on to be
  • possibly my signature song.
  • And now, here, all these years later,
  • that's the song that you chose to sing,
  • and -- and that song is timeless.
  • That was really sweet!
  • You do a great job of it, man.
  • Thank you.
  • Look at this bromance!
  • That story melted my heart, man.
  • Blake lies a lot on this show,
  • and it's like Blake is actually -- He's human.
  • He's like a decent person sometimes.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • So, who do you pick as your coach?
  • [ Laughter ] Thank you.
  • Blake: The way that this season is going,
  • I'm not assuming anything right now.
  • Blow our minds and pick Gwen.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Yeah, like, just do it.
  • Just go crazy.
  • [ Laughs ]
  • ♪♪♪
  • First of all, I thank all of y'all for the opportunity here.
  • Um...
  • ♪♪♪
  • I think I'm gonna have to go with Coach Blake, Team Blake.
  • ♪ I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie ♪
  • ♪ Got my honky-tonk attitude from Joe Diffie ♪
  • Great job, dude. Seriously, man. Thank you. Appreciate it.
  • You sounded great. Thank you.
  • This is gonna be a lot of fun, man.
  • Blake: It's nerve-racking for me
