Local country singer Brenna Yaeger goes Team Blake on The Voice

The Voice
is back for its eighth season (crazy, we know) and this time one of Spokane’s own made it to the blind audition portion of the program. On last night’s episode, 19-year-old Brenna Yaeger took to the vocal competition’s stage looking more hippie folk artist than the breathy country singer she is.

It took some balls for the Mead High School graduate to sing coach Blake Shelton’s wife’s “The House That Built Me,” as he’s clearly well-acquainted with the song (incidentally, both Shelton and Miranda Lambert have toured through Spokane recently).

But it worked well for her in the end. Adam Levine and Shelton both turned their chairs for the singer, sparring for her attention on their team. But it wasn’t too much of a contest. She, of course, chose Team Blake — she has his wife’s lyrics tattooed on her foot after all.

Yaeger, who currently works at the General Store on Division, will go on to the battle round portion next, which pits two contestants against each other to ultimately decide final teams.

Only time will tell if she's Spokane's next Cami Bradley, albeit on a different talent competition show.
