It never fails. The talent pool from Georgia is strong on most of the singing reality shows and Carter Lloyd Horne from Marietta is no exception.
Horne is 19-years-old and sang Midland's "Drinking Problem" on The Voice: Blind Auditions last night. He had Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton fighting over him for their team. His deep and soulful voice that seemed to surpass is age, was phenomenal. This kid is one to watch this season.
Horne comes from humble beginnings and found solace in music when he and his parents ended up homeless. He told his story before singing saying, "Growing up,....Everything was really great for a while...I never thought we would be homeless, but In 2008, when the market crashed, that ended up with us losing everything."
Horne was really hurt seeing his parent struggle and leaned on music as an escape. "For about a year and a half, we lived in this tiny motel. It was actually when we were living in that motel, my grandma got me this cheap little guitar, and I started trying to learn it. Music gave me something to get my mind off of things, and it gave me something to focus on and became a big part of my life. Any time your life changes so drastically, that's going to really just affect your word," he told the show.
Now he's got a chance to change his entire world! Best wishes to him and let's all root for the home team!! Go kill it Carter.
