What’s next for Ashland Craft on ‘The Voice?’ – WYFF-TV – WYFF Greenville

Upstate singer Ashland Craft is moving on to the playoff rounds on NBC’s “The Voice.”

Craft, 21, of Piedmont, won the knockout round on Monday against her teammate Chloe Kohanski, 23, of Nashville, which moves her on to the playoffs. Craft belted out “Wanted Dead Or Alive,” while Kohanski performed an emotional rendition of “Landslide.”

Kohanski will also move on, after coach Blake Shelton stole her for his team.


In the playoff rounds, 24 artists will be cut down to 12; three for each coach. There are three recorded episodes during which each artist performs a song they believe proves they deserve to be in the top 12 on the live shows.

The performances of Miley Cyrus’s team, including Craft’s, will air Nov. 14. Performances by Jennifer Hudson’s and Shelton’s singers will air Nov. 13, and performances by Adam Levine’s team will air Nov. 15.

If Craft makes the cut, she will be in the live shows that begin Nov. 20. The television audience will vote during the live shows to save their favorite artists and the two artists with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week.

In the end, one will be named “The Voice” and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.

Craft, who graduated from Woodmont High, is a regular performer at Wendell’s Dippin Branch in Anderson. She describes herself as a “small-town girl with big dreams, a lover of Jesus and a country/southern rock singer and songwriter.”

Craft’s opponent, Kohanski, said Cyrus was one of her musical inspirations growing up and that she is “obsessed with her.” She said she always wanted to be a singer, but briefly went to college to study to be an English teacher before she quit school and started performing in a blues band.

“The Voice” airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on WYFF Channel 4.
