16-year-old Brayden Lape quickly became a fan-favorite on the current season of The Voice. He advanced through the auditions, battles, and knockouts to make it to the live shows as a member of the Top 16.

The young Team Blake singer kept things country during his first live performance. He opted to cover a song that just won a CMA Award. That song is “Buy Dirt” by Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan.

“Buy Dirt” was released in July 2021 as a single off of Davis’ EP of the same title. The song reached the #1 spot on both of Billboard‘s country charts and has been certified 2× Platinum by the RIAA.

During the 56th CMA Awards on November 9, “Buy Dirt” won the award for Song of the Year. The award was given to its songwriters, Jacob Davis, Jordan Davis, Josh Jenkins, and Matt Jenkins.

With “Buy Dirt” being fresh in the headlines again, Lape was under a lot of pressure to pull off his cover on The Voice. But he ended up delivering a performance that impressed the coaches and the viewers at home.

Lape received lots of praise on YouTube, with people commenting things such as:

“His voice is the most unique one this season. He definitely stands out.”

“Long time fan of The Voice! Brayden is my absolute favorite this season! So genuine and pure! Huge fan!!!!”

“He sounds like [a] recording artist already.”

“Next country Superstar you go boy.”
