“‘Automatic’ is a song about the good life,” said Miranda. “It’s about slowing down, taking a breath and remembering what it’s like to live life a little more simply. It’s not about going back, but reminiscing about what it was like to hang laundry on the line and wait for it to dry and my dad teaching me how to drive my ’55 Chevy that I still have but don’t drive nearly enough,” she said. “The song brings back good memories and it reminds me to take a deep breath and to remember that getting there is half the fun.”
“Automatic” is the debut single from Miranda’s fifth album, which will be released later this year. “It’s always exciting and little bit nerve-wracking to release a new album,” said Miranda. “We’ve been writing and recording since last summer and I’m ready for the fans to hear my new music.”
The Voice comes to an end next week with either Jermaine Paul (Team Blake), Tony Lucca (Team Adam), Juliet Simms (Team Cee Lo) or Chris Mann (Team Christina) walking away as the winner.
We’re well aware of what the final four are up to. But what about some of our favorite second season singers who have come and gone? On Wednesday (May 9) we’ll all get the chance to catch up with a big bunch of them.
More than a dozen former contestants from this season are coming together for what’s being billed as “The After Party” show. The singers will be taking to the stage for a special show at Saint Rocke, just outside of Los Angeles.
The event will not only allow fans to reconnect with some of their favorites, it will also allow the performers to keep building the bonds they formed while on the show.
Shortly after Nicolle Galyon left The Voice, we asked her who she would be supporting on the show. The singer/songwriter admitted she’s a fan of all the contestants, but her loyalties lay with RaeLynn.
It’s one thing to say you’re supporting somebody, but Nicolle’s taking it to another level by singing about her! The former member of Team Adam posted the song “California” on her Facebook page with the caption: “Any guess who this was written about??” (If the lyrics don’t give it away, the link to The Voice voting page and the request for folks to vote for RaeLynn certainly do!)
You can hear the song below and also get a free download of it here.
Actually, the song has a double-shot of support from former contestants on The Voice. Hailey Steele from the country duo The Line (formerly on Team Christina) sings the background vocals on the song.
Nicolle Galyon may not have won her Battle Round on The Voice, but as you will see, she leaves the show as a winner on so many levels.
The country music singer/songwriter was paired with Mathai for her Battle Round. Coach Adam Levine chose “Love Song” by Sara Bareilles for their battle. The song was tailor-made for the piano-playing Galyon, who lists Bareilles as one of her influences. Everything seemed to be going her way with a perfect song and Levine even saying she could play her piano during the battle.
Then the day before the battle, Levine shook things up by taking the piano out. We will never know if things may have been different had she been allowed to battle from behind her Baldwin. As it turned out, the other three coaches all felt Mathai not only sang better, but also had a more polished performance. Levine agreed, ending Nicolle’s adventure on The Voice.
We caught up with her a few days after her elimination aired to discuss her Battle Round, her upcoming projects and the moment that finally brought her to tears. Continue reading to learn how the 27-year-old native from Sterling, Kansas is on the rise both personally and professionally.
Nicolle Galyon is a study in contradiction. She grew up in the tiny town of Sterling, Kansas, but thrives in the big city of Nashville. She writes songs for country music, but she’s trained in classical piano.
With that said, it makes sense that country singer Nicolle would end up on rocker Adam Levine’s team on NBC’s smash singing competition “The Voice.” As you will find out, she wouldn’t have had it any other way.
The 27-year-old moved to Nashville after graduating from high school. She enrolled in Belmont University’s Music Business program and was focusing on a career behind the scenes in the music business. But her undeniable talent wouldn’t let that happen. She secretly began writing songs in her spare time. Thanks to the urging of her friends, she entered a few of her songs into the Songwriter’s Showcase Series at Belmont. Her success there opened up some doors, which opened up more doors, which led her to a publishing deal with Warner Music Nashville, where she has been a staff songwriter since 2007.
Several of her songs have made it onto records — including a pair by a certain American Idol alum. But the voices singing those songs — telling her stories — weren’t hers. That’s one of the main reasons she auditioned for “The Voice.” She decided her love of music was greater than her fear of failure. Score one for love.
The auditions were back in October, how hard was it to not say anything to anyone?
