Wendy Moten Beautifully Covered Loretta Lynn at CMT's Next Women of Country
She surely did the late country singer justice.
CMT's Next Women of Country welcomed a very special singer this week. The Voice Season 21 runner-up Wendy Moten used her country singing chops to perform some Loretta Lynn at the City Winery in Nashville, Tennessee on November 8.
Moten posted the covers on her Instagram Story on November 9, showing clips of her gorgeously singing “Before I’m Over You,” by Loretta Lynn. “I just can’t get it through my head, you love another instead,” Moten crooned with passion.
“I think I’ve almost lost my mind, I think about you all the time, I’m going crazy, yes I know, and I don’t have far to go,” she continued, singing emotionally about heartbreak.
Moten has always been drawn to country music, choosing Blake Shelton to be her Coach during her Four-Chair turn Blind Audition on The Voice.
"[She's] still one of the best singers—maybe the best singer that I’ve ever just sat and listened to in a room. [She's] just unbelievable," Shelton said of Moten’s Audition in an interview with NBC Insider.
NBC Insider also talked to Moten herself, who spoke fondly of her time on The Voice. "I've worked with some of the greatest Artists in history; they were great storytellers, and I just wanted to reach people through song," she said.
She also praised Shelton’s coaching abilities on the show. "What I loved about Blake was he knew that I had a lot of experience. He also was not trying to change me. If anything, he was encouraging me to trust my instincts," Moten said.
