The Voice season nine Team Blake finalist took to the Nashville Acoustic Corner stage in the Bridgestone Arena capturing the capacity audience including critics from Rolling Stone, who named her as one of the 20 Best Acts of the festival, alongside other noteworthy artists such as Trisha Yearwood and Lil Nas X.
“With support from a scaled-down band, Roberts showed off some serious vocal firepower, stretching out stratospheric notes and tossing in tricky runs with the easy confidence of a pro athlete. But with clever, hyper-melodic songs like “Stuck on Me & You,” Roberts also showed she’s got plenty of other weapons in her arsenal,” praised Rolling Stone. Read the full article here.
