Josh Gallagher Debuts ‘Pick Any Small Town’ on ‘The Voice’ [Watch]
Josh Gallagher's original performance on The Voice was a song that couldn't be more him. The small town-raised country singer debuted "Pick Any Small Town," a song he helped write for the Season 11 finale.
Steel and acoustic guitar pinned down a song that could only be described as country. The Johnstown, Pa. born and raised singer now resides in Nashville, and it's clear the town has been more than an influence. It helped form the friendships he needed to write songs like "Pick Any Small Town."
Gallagher's verses that describe small-town Chevys, fishing and small town values. Coach Blake Shelton admitted he could relate to the song, even though the singer was part of Team Adam. This is Levin's chance to win the NBC reality show with a country singer, something he's always wanted to do.
All four finalists released music videos for their singles before Monday night's show began. Gallagher's video contrasts prison cells and churches as he sings and plays his acoustic. "Pick any small town anywhere on the map / That’s what we are that’s where we’re at / That’s where we’ll be the day they lay us in the ground … Where them homegrown boys and still be found / Pick any small town," he sings with a smile. The song is now available on iTunes as well.
Later in the show Levine and Gallagher performed Santana's "Smooth," with the country singer holding down most of the lead vocals as Levine filled the gaps and played lead guitar. His final performance was a cover of John Mellencamp's "Jack & Diane."
