Meghan Linsey, ‘The Voice’ 2015 Contestant: Team Blake Shelton

Meghan Linsey

Meghan Linsey is one of the season 8 contestants from The Voice on Blake Shelton's team. She's a talented platinum blonde, who's in a relationship with a fellow music artist named Tyler Cain. They've been together for three years, ever since Cain asked Linsey to accompany him on a road trip from Vegas to Los Angeles. Cain is a producer, songwriter, and musician from Nashville, who has his own production company called Cain Productions. Prior to getting together with Tyler Cain, Linsey was engaged to another man. Linsey was half of the duo Steel Magnolia, an American country music duet that won the second season of TV show Can You Duet. Joshua Scott Jones, Linsey's fiance, was the other half of the duo. The two met when Linsey was a karaoke host at a Nashville karaoke bar, called Lonnie's Western Room. In 2011, Jones announced that he was going to rehab for drugs and after rehab, the two broke off their engagement. In 2014, they officially announced via Facebook that they were pursuing solo careers. Prior to being on The Voice, Linsey had actually toured with Blake Shelton earlier in her career. While his chair didn't turn for her blind audition, he was able to steal her later on in the competition. As for Linsey's musical influences over the years, she states on her website: I grew up listening to Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and my favorite ... Whitney Houston. I loved the soulfulness of their voices. But I also fell in love with the storytelling of country music and the songs of artists like Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker and Patty Griffin. Anything with grit and soul really resonated with me growing up, and it still does. As for what Linsey had to say about joining the cast of The Voice, she stated that: I’ve always been a risk taker, and as an artist, I want to continue to challenge myself and push the boundaries. I’m looking forward to The Voice as an opportunity to grow and to reach an even broader fan base! I’m excited to show America who I am!
