In an interview last week, Colton Swon said Shelton also should be commended for the care he has for his singers. Past Team Blake contenders Dia Frampton and Gwen Sebastian have toured with the superstar.

“That just goes to show you he's working after the fact, too, and he cares about people. He really does. Not that the other coaches don't, but there's just something about Blake Shelton that he wants to be invested and what you see is what you get,” Colton said by phone from Los Angeles.

Although they didn't win the singing contest, the brothers said they think they show has provided a great showcase for their talents.

“Right now, I'll go ahead and say this: It's looking pretty good, either outcome for us,” Colton said last Friday. “We're getting a lot of interest from a lot of people, and I think the Top 3 is set no matter who wins.”

On Tuesday, the Swon siblings' time on “The Voice” got even more special. Seger joined the duo in performing his 1976 ballad “Night Moves”; earlier in the season, the brothers scored an iTunes hit with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's road anthem “Turn the Page.”

Plus, the Top 3 were surprised with new Kia automobiles in a segment on Tuesday's finale.

“The first thing we're doing is getting on the road. You know, we're playing Swoncerts all across America, so this is gonna get us there,” Colton said.

Kelly Swon, who was featured with their mother Tammy on Monday's “The Voice,” said last week he wasn't sure where his sons would go next, but their next stop might be Music City USA.

“They only thing they've really expressed to me is they think this will be their launching pad to go ahead and move to Nashville, but whether they do or not, I couldn't tell you,” he said. “Since they were probably 11 and 14 ... they've said they would be in Nashville someday, and they've never backed up from it.”
