    My The Voice prediction! Plus, GRAND Social No. 208 link party for grandparents

    My The Voice prediction

    I'm not much of a fan of country music. There are a few artists in that genre whom I enjoy listening to, but when naming my favorite tunes and talents, country songs and singers aren't among them.

    I am a huge fan of The Voice, though. And this current season, which wraps up tomorrow night, has been pretty much the best, featuring the best talent so far. It's also the season that's turning me into a bit of a country music fan. At least where one artist is concerned.

    The one artist? Adam Wakefield. I love this kid. He's an amazing musician... and has proven his skill in singing and playing southern rock and blues (faves of mine) as well as country. I have no doubt he can sing most any genre he sets his heart on.

    I also have no doubt that — and here's my prediction — Adam Wakefield will win this season of The Voice. Yes, I put that in writing. His most recent performance is just one of the many reasons why:


    Of course, if you don't watch The Voice (and how could that be?), you don't know what the other three artists he'll compete against tomorrow night sound like. But trust me: This guy rocks (even country), and this guy will win.

    If you've not yet watched The Voice, tonight's episode featuring the final performances from the top four of this season is a great place to start, a great place to see the incredible talent out there just waiting to be discovered. (Because, to be honest, every single one of the final four absolutely has the chops — and the voice — to win this time. Incredible musicians every one.)

    Three cheers for Adam Wakefield! And perhaps one or two cheers for country music, too... done Adam Wakefield style.

    GRAND Social No. 208

    Cheers to each of you, too, for joining this week's GRAND Social link party! Thank you for being here!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    Adam is my husband's favorite too. He is great. We like Hannah too..should be interesting.

    I don't watch TV very much so I haven't heard of The Voice. And, I'm not much of a country music fan either. . . Maybe that would change a bit if I watched The Voice! :-)

    Hi Lisa

    I don't watch The Voice very often but the times i have I really liked Adam Wakefield. My son-in-law likes country music and I know Adam has the right tone and style to be successful in that genre form what I've heard.

    I babysat my 3 year old granddaughter all week while her parents were away, celebrating their anniversary. It was a lot of fun but a little exhausting to be a full time "mommy" grandmother --lol!

    I am also cheering for Adam, though I must admit that Hannah has my attention. Perhaps it's my Nebraska roots! I love The Voice!

    Of course you know, I'm the Total Country Music fan. I hope a singer who has made even a little bit of you a fan too! si the winner!
    Thanx for the Grand Social, too!

    I've always been a fan of country music. I was raised on country...the old school twangy stuff, but I enjoy today's country much more! I haven't watched The Voice this season and it sounds like I've missed out.

    I have heard of the Voice, I don't watch TV but watch what I want on my Kindle. He did sound good.

    One of the things I enjoy about The Voice is watching the parents of these up-and-coming stars take such delight and be so thrilled at their grown child's performances.

    So I am way behind -- did your guy win? I don't watch the show but I am curios!
