Miley Cyrus Gives Blake Shelton a Run for His Country Money on New Season of ‘The Voice’

Miley Cyrus’ recent years might make it easy to forget about her Tennessee roots, but before she was riding wrecking balls and getting carried away at award shows, she was a country cutie blowing us away with her covers of Dolly Parton and Fleetwood Mac. In a new video, Miley is ready to go head to head with Blake Shelton and prove that she’s still a country girl at heart.

Since the launch of “The Voice” Blake has been the only judge who really knows about and has experience with country music, so if you wanted a relevant country career, #TeamBlake has always been the way to go. Miley thinks she’s about to change that, but Blake isn’t having it.

“Don’t pull that Dolly Parton god-daughter sh** on me” he banters as Miley thinks her relationship with Dolly, her experience with the industry and growing up on the classics is going to give her an edge over him. I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of hoping she will succeed in proving the country we Miley we all used to love is still there somewhere.

So grab your popcorn, the country duel we would have never expected premieres Monday, September 19th at 8/7c. on NBC.
