Hear the “Gravel-y Growl” Noah Spencer Used to Get Himself 3 Chair Turns
Spencer’s cover of Zach Bryan’s “Something in the Orange” had the Coaches raving.
Even John Legend — the only Coach who didn't turn his chair — had praise for Spencer. “I’m sorry I didn’t turn, but the headline is you have this interesting growl,” Legend said. “And it makes your voice stand out on this show… Nobody else sounds like you.”

For her pitch to Spencer, McEntire said,“I love the gravel in your voice — that is so cool! I couldn’t wait to turn around and see what you looked like. When you hear the voice, then you just kind of start making up your own little ‘video’ in your head. I loved everything about your performance — your tone, your gravel-ness of your voice. I would love to be your Coach!”
Meanwhile, Stefani said, “I don’t have anyone like you on my team — I don’t really think there’s anyone like you in this whole competition right now! America loves that kind of a voice, and I think you’re gonna get, like, a lot of eyes on you in this show. You have a lot of raw talent, and you’re just different than anything else that I’ve been around." Ultimately, though, Spencer went with Team Niall.
Like the Zach Bryan song he performed, Noah Spencer has country roots. He hails from a small town in Virginia. “It’s a really close-knit community; you can’t go to the grocery store without running into three or four people that you know,” he said.
