Check out Muskogee’s The Swon Brothers performances last week on “The Voice,” along with their “Final Say” interview in which they talk about their time on the hit reality TV show and their tutelage under their coach, Oklahoma country music superstar.

Zach and Colton Swon performed Brad Paisley’s “Celebrity” with Blake, Lady Antebellum’s “Stars Tonight” with fellow “The Voice” contestants Holly Tucker, Justin Rivers and Amber Carrington and Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer himself.

“I looked over at him in the performance and just shook my head like ‘You’ve gotta be kidding me. This isn’t even real,’” Colton told me in a new interview in the days after the finale. “What was really cool was that this was the first year he cleared songs, and he did it for us. He watched our clips before he would clear ‘em.”

“If a producer would have came to me and said, ‘OK, you have the choice of winning “The Voice” or performing with Bob Seger.’ I would’ve picked perform with Bob Seger,” Zach added. “That was a very, very just pivotal epic moment in our journey for sure. We’ll never forget that.”

After spending a few days back home in Muskogee, where I caught them on the phone, the Swon siblings flew to Nashville, Tenn., where they’ve been taking meetings about possible record deals and tour arrangements.

They announced today on Twitter (@TheSwonBrothers), “#Swoncerts coming soon can’t wait to meet you all on the road! Will announce tour dates ASAP!”
