The road to TV reality stardom ended last night for “The Voice” country singer Liz Davis.
The Laurel-born Davis, the NBC show’s only remaining country contestant was eliminated Thursday night along with mariachi singer Julio Cesar Castillo by their coach Blake Shelton. Davis thanked her fans on Twitter following the show. “My head is held high and I feel stronger than ever,” she wrote.
After a year at Delta State University, Davis got started in Nashville singing and writing music before starring in and winning the MTV reality talent show “StarMaker” in 2009. When an album and label deal continued to evade her she went back to Nashville and had hoped that “The Voice” would be a successful second shot.
On Monday night, Davis sang Martina McBride’s hit “Independence Day” and viewers voted in the show’s first live round.
Last week, Davis took time out of her busy schedule to talk with the MBJ. Excerpts from the phone interview are included in the following video.
