Taking this classic country tune and CMA Award-winning song to the stage, Red Marlow made sure he was going to the live shows with this pure country performance.
Already noted for his uncanny vocal ability and traditional country style, Marlow has continued to impress the coaches and audiences alike with each and every round – quickly becoming a fan-favorite member of Team Blake.
Pulling out all the stops for the most recent playoff round, Marlow covered 1989’s CMA Song of the Year, “Chiseled in Stone” which was written and recorded by the legendary Vern Gosdin. Gosdin himself was known as “The Voice” during his nearly five-decade-long career and became one of the best-known country singers of the 80s.
“Chiseled in Stone” has been known as “one of the saddest country songs” for decades and carries that traditional twang and sorrowful theme found in some of the best country songs to emerge in the 1980s and early 1990s.
Truly honing his skills as an artist, Marlow’s aptitude for making a song his own was clear in this performance and that was reflected when he scored a well-deserved victory for his hard work.
