Former "The Voice" contestant Grace Askew premiered a music video for her song "Empty Rooms" on Sunday. The woman who coined the term "bluntry" (blues and country music) delivers just that in her rustic clip. She warbles the soulful tune in an open field.
Askew came to prominence during her brief stint on season four of "The Voice" earlier this year. She sang a memorable cover of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'," which led her to joining team Blake Shelton. Unfortunately, even as a fan-favorite, she was cut from the competition later on. It was just another stepping stone in her career, though, as Askew released some more music of her own independently afterword.
"Empty Rooms" is one of the tracks on Askew's new EP of the same name. On the bluesy ballad, Grace digs deep lyrically and vocally, singing about how a guy won't complete her but that she will lovingly appreciate the company. "Ain't no way these empty rooms will ever be filled by you, but either way baby I love you all the same," she warbles with soul like Jack White did on his "Blunderbuss" LP. This is "bluntry" at its finest, folks.
