The Voice Season 21 stars Clint Sherman and Carson Peters have gone from Battle partners on Team Blake to duet partners on a new song called “Happy to Drive.” The upbeat country song makes for the perfect collaboration.
The Voice‘s Clint Sherman, Carson Peters Release Song
Last year on The Voice, coach Blake Shelton paired Carson and Clint together for the Battle rounds. They performed “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away” by Vince Gill. Although the coaches praised both artists, Shelton chose to keep Carson on his team, eliminating Clint.
However, there were no hard feelings, as Clint ended up asking Carson to join him on a new track called “Happy to Drive,” which just released on Friday. The song, written by Clint, is a feel-good, twangy country tune about driving around with the person you love.
Clint shows off his classic, clear voice on the track, with Carson adding another layer with his fiddle and additional vocals. According to a press release, the bubbly song also features steel guitar player Milo Deering, guitarist Jerry Matheny, and background vocalist Ashley Howell. It all comes together to form a great sound.
The Two Are Performing Around Tennessee
The two singers shared in a press release that they’re also planning to tour around Carson’s home state of Tennessee together for the “Happy to Drive” Road Show. They’ll stop at Shelton’s Ole Red locations in Gatlinburg and Nashville. Later this year, they plan to perform in Clint’s home state of Texas.
“I knew that Carson would help me elevate the song because he’s a great fiddle player,” Clint told Country Now about his choice to feature his Battle partner. “I also just felt like the bridge needed this real punchy voice and that’s what Carson has.”
In an Instagram post last week, Clint gave a shoutout to both The Voice and coach Blake Shelton for introducing him to Carson on the show last year. It’s so nice to see former teammates coming together even after elimination.
