Video: Muskogee's The Swon Brothers perform "American Girl," make Team Blake on "The Voice"

by Brandy McDonnell Published: April 4, 2013

As previously reported, The Swon Brothers of Muskogee successfully auditioned for “The Voice” on Monday’s episode of the hit NBC reality series.

Zach and Colton Swon opened Monday’s episode performing Tom Petty’s “American Girl.” They got three of the hit reality show’s celebrity coaches to swivel their chairs: Usher, Shakira and Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton.

The Swon Brothers stuck with a fellow Okie and opted to join Team Blake.

Blake now has two sets of siblings on his growing team – The Swon Brothers and The Morgan Twins – which could be interesting as the Battle Rounds get started.

“The Voice” continues at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.

Check out the video of The Swon Brothers’ rendition of “American Girl” below, and look for my excellent colleague Melissa Hayer’s feature on Zach and Colton Friday in the Weekend Look section of The Oklahoman and on NewsOK.
