Austin Jenckes came to ‘The Voice‘ through Nashville and Duvall, Wash. The 25-year-old is one of three remaining members of Team Blake, and after a rendition of a Travis Tritt hit this week, he’s itching to get back in front of the cameras.

Jenckes took this photo during rehearsal on Wednesday (Nov. 13), saying he and Blake Shelton were working on “an awesome version of next weeks song … can’t wait for this one!!” It will have to top ‘It’s a Great Day to Be Alive,’ his country cover from this week’s broadcast. All four coaches gave him praise after the crowd finished applauding. “It just felt good,” Christina Aguilera said.

The country singer has made the Top 10 by relying on a unique vocal style and a folk sensibility to relate to fans. He’s a crowd favorite heading into next week’s performance episode on Monday (Nov. 18). Previous performances have included Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s ‘Simple Man’ and the Black Crowes’ ‘She Talks to Angels.’ Purchase Jenckes’ performances here.
