Southern Soundcheck: A Fall Playlist From Mary Sarah of “The Voice”

Fans of NBC’s “The Voice” will remember this friendly face from her amazing run on the show.

Mary Sarah, a Nashville resident, is originally from Texas; so she’s a Southern gal through and through.

She finished Top 5 on Season 10 on “The Voice” on Team Blake. These days, the Southern songstress is celebrating the release of her new single, “Without You.”

We recently sat down with Mary Sarah, decked out in the brand new Draper James Southern Fried Tee, and got the lowdown on what’s she’s up to, as well as what she’ll be listening to this fall.

How do you think your Southern background has influenced you as a person? 

I am definitely more of a country girl at heart. I grew up in a small town in Texas, and I feel like that will never leave me.

I live in downtown Nashville now, but I have to admit, I miss the quiet of the country! I used to roam around outside and explore.

What do you think is the best part about the South in the fall? 

I think one thing I absolutely love about Tennessee is the leaves that change in the fall. It’s just beautiful.

What drew you to  the “Southern Fried” tee? 

Once a Texas girl, always a Texas girl. Now I think everyone knows that if you’re from the South or visiting, there is not a lack of fried food!

Anything big planned for the rest of 2017? 

I have some big things to get ready for for 2018! I have a lot of shows to look forward to and a lot of exciting things that, sadly, I cannot talk about just yet! But, be lookin’ out.

I’m also in the process of working on music. I am pretty pumped to finish out this year and take on 2018!
