'The Voice' Season 21: Carson Peters picks Team Blake, but here's why fans are upset
Like a moth to a flame, almost all country music performers on 'The Voice' are drawn to Blake Shelton. So it came as no surprise when Carson Peters picked Team Blake, however, fans aren't very happy about the Tennessee musician's decision to go with Team Blake.
Carson's rendition to Don Williams' 'Tulsa Time' floored all the four coaches on the show, earning the 17-year-old crooner the rare honor of a four-chair-turn performance during the blind auditions. All the coaches fought really hard to get Carson on their team. Kelly Clarkson, who dabbles between country music and pop, couldn't get enough of the young performer's smooth voice, while John Legend pointed out that he had no country singers on his team so Carson would make a perfect addition to Team Legend. Ariana Grande immediately realized that the competition was tough among the coaches for getting Carson on their team, so she gracefully bowed out by saying she really enjoyed Carson's performance but country music isn't exactly her wheelhouse. Finally, it was Blake's turn.

Blake easily coerced Carson into joining Team Blake by pointing out his previous victories and assuring him that he would go very far in the competition if he chose to join the legendary country singer's team. Although for a moment everybody thought that Carson would surprise everybody and pick Team Legend, the young musician decided to join Team Blake and left fans disappointed. A fan tweeted, "Ngl I feel like Carson would’ve done really well with John #TheVoice." Another fan wrote, "I really wanted Carson to go against the grain and choose John lol he’s so cool tho. #TheVoice."

Carson aka Fiddle Boy is already a well-accomplished musician who has played at the Grand Ole Opry. He told the judges that he started out by playing fiddle and has already competed in several fiddle competitors and played at various musical festivals since the age of four. He also added that bluegrass music is his thing and named Ricky Skaggs as his idol. He surprised the coaches when he told them that he had performed alongside Skaggs.
While fans aren't pleased with Carson's choice of coach, they however couldn't stop praising his magnetic voice. A fan shared, "Carson has ALREADY played the OPRY?? -- Dude you kind of don't need #TheVoice ??? You've already made it -- but I mean TALENT #VoiceBlinds." "Carson Peters feels like a winner to me! #TheVoice," declared a fan. Another fan added, "This kid is already awesome. Let's go, Carson! #TheVoice."
