The Voice contestant Jackie Verna always turns to country music when she needs a helping hand. So when she needed to outshine her competitors as the Live Playoffs kicked off overnight, she leaned on some old-school Taylor Swift.
Verna went for a deep cut from TayTay’s catalogue with a cover of “Tim McGraw,” which appeared on the 2006 album Taylor Swift. “She delivered a solid ballad, coming off as mature and confident,” noted THR’s Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya. “It wasn’t the most exciting song choice, but she sang it well.”
Verna was badly injured in a road accident in 2012, but made a strong recovery as she threw her energies into country music. Check out her performance of “Tim McGraw” below.
