(WCMH) – It’s official! A trio of singers from Ohio turned two chairs on Season 16 of The Voice
For their blind audition, The Bundys performed ‘Closer to Fine’ by the Indigo Girls.
“I turned around and saw a trio, and instantly, I’m like, ‘This is not what I bargained for,’” said Blake Shelton. “All of a sudden, it went from, ‘Oh no, oh God,’ to, ‘Oh yes! Oh God, yes!’ They have this country harmony, they got this family sound that you can only have with siblings. Please let me be a part of this historic journey.”
“I really love harmonies. I really feel like I can be a solid coach for you. I really love your voice,” said Kelly Clarkson. “They make fun of me a lot, but when I’m passionate, I talk a lot, and you know what’s a great coach? A passionate coach!”
The trio picked team Kelly.
The Bundys, Cincinnati natives Megan, Katey and Ryan Bundy are the first trio to ever audition for The Voice.
They’re also the grandchildren of Tom McNutt, who served as NBC4’s on-air gardening expert for nearly 25 years. McNutt died in 2017 at the age of 84.
In December, The Bundys released a music video for their song, ‘Fine and Dandy,’ a tribute to McNutt. The group describes the song as one of the favorites they have ever written.
Megan, Katey and Ryan credit their parents and grandparents with influencing their music by introducing them to artists like John Denver, Simon and Garfunkel and Dolly Parton.
