Red Marlow is the 40-year-old country singer competing on Season 13 of The Voice. The bald-headed, red goatee-wearing singer describes his background this way: “I’m as country as cornbread,” Marlow says. After singing the John Anderson song “Swingin” for his Blind Audition, Red joined Blake Shelton‘s team. And then he won the Battle Round against fellow Team Blake member Ryan Scripps after singing the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band song “Fishin’ in the Dark.” Now Red is “patiently waiting” for his turn at the Knockouts (Tuesday, November 7).

For the Knockout Round, Red will sing the Craig Campbell song “Outskirts of Heaven.” It’s a song that compares the singer’s rural lifestyle to such an idyllic place as heaven. Campbell grew up as one of five kids in Lyons, Georgia and now lives in Nashville, as does his friend Red Marlow. (Marlow is originally from Alabama.) “Outskirts of Heaven” by Red is going to be tough to beat. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
