Britton Buchanan’s Music Career
Born and raised in Sanford, North Carolina, Britton Buchanan’s age was 17 during his audition. He is now an 18-year-old senior at Lee County High School.
Buchanan started singing at a young age. He performed in places around Sanford, including Cary, Raleigh, Apex, and Morrisville.
Talking to a local news station, Buchanan explained his love for music and theatre and said, “I started performing when I was about 10 or 11 at a local theater here in Sanford. But musically I think I was about 12 years old when I started in song and dance. Then it kind of took off from that.”
Buchanan even played Danny in a local production of Grease in March 2017.

An Incredible Blind Audition on The Voice
A big fan of Bruce Springsteen, Buchanan blew the judges away with his soulful bind audition. His love for music was apparent as he delivered a breathtaking performance.
Singing Ray LaMontagne’s “Trouble,” Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Alicia Keys all turned their chairs to watch the young singer croon away.
Levine said he was “a huge fan,” while Shelton called Buchanan’s performance “intense.”
Keys was full of praise for the young singer and said, “Britton, your voice has so much honesty in it. There is something so genuine about you. I go on emotion. I feel like that’s what makes music real. And I’d love to help you bring that out for people to be moved.”
Team Alicia All the Way
This year, the creators of The Voice brought in an exciting new twist with the introduction of the “block.” (Basically allowing each judge a one-time “block” that takes away another coach’s opportunity to gain that artist.)
Each judge gets an opportunity to use it once in the season, and Blake Shelton was quick to use it on Adam Levine, even though he denied it at first.
“I did block Adam. The reason I blocked Adam is because I want you on my damn team! That’s the truth, man,” Shelton later admitted.
But after all the drama, Buchanan finally went on to pick Alicia Keys as his coach! (Meaning, Blake just wasted his “block!”)
