Video: The Swon Brothers win their Battle Round on "The Voice"

by Brandy McDonnell Published: April 15, 2013

Brotherly harmonies won the day for Muskogee’s The Swon Brothers as the Battle Rounds began tonight on “The Voice.”

Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton opted not to go for the obvious Battle Round pairing for Zach and Colton Swon, who could’ve been pitted against another sibling act, since Team Blake also boasts The Morgan Twins.

Instead, Shelton matched The Swon Brothers with bar singer Christian Porter, 21, of Stroudsburg, Penn.

The song choice for the Battle, Tom Petty’s “Won’t Back Down,” provided an immediate edge for the Swons, who aced their Blind Audition with Petty’s “American Girl.” The Swon Brothers blended their voices beautifully on another of Petty’s classic rock anthem, besting Porter to become the first duo to make it past the Battle Rounds.
