It’s a big thumbs-up from the members of the Marshall Tucker Band for Patrick Thomson's recent performance on NBC's "The Voice," where the music-star wannabe performed a classic by the band, “Can't You See."

"The Voice" judges/coaches Adam Levin and Blake Shelton dug Thomson’s cover of the hit, too, and so much so that Thomson was able to advance to the next round of competition.

In a March 11 correspondence shared with Examiner.com, Marshall Tucker Band’s lead singer, Doug Gray, said, “Patrick's 'Can't You See' performance made us proud. He did an outstanding job on our song and he gets 100 percent approval from the Marshall Tucker Band.

“Our fingers are crossed that Patrick and his coach, Adam Levine, go on to win this thing,” Gray added. Good luck from the MTB."
