On Season 15 of The Voice, Blake Shelton asked fellow country star Keith Urban to help him mentor his team for the Battle Rounds. They met a long time ago — when Blake used to rock a mullet. When Blake cut the mullet he added a clean shaved beard to his look, and it works. Lots of millennials wear beards these days so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some of Blake’s young artists are sporting facial hair. But his Season 15 team wins the “most bearded” title of The Voice history.
Of the 10 artists left on Team Blake, 8 are men and of those 8 men, 5 have full-on beards. Not goatees or soul patches or closely shaved beards like Blake’s. No, we’re talking watch-how-you-eat beards. And, of those five — four are living in Tennessee.
Caeland Garner (31, Nashville)
Chris Kroeze (27, Barron, WI)
Colton Smith (21, Nashville)
Dave Fenley (39, Nashville)
Keith Paluso (30, Memphis)
Keep an eye out for Mikele Buck on Kelly Clarkson’s team, he might get stolen by Blake just so he can join his fellow long beards. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 pm on NBC.
