‘The Voice’ Trainer Season 22 Episode 3.

Episode 3 of Season 22 of “The voice‘ aired on September 26 and, as expected, was full of competition. Not only the participants competed against each other, the trainers were also in full battle mode. Coaches Blake Shelton and his wife Gwen Stefani often share an interest in the same artists, which creates an unusual dynamic.

When the first duo of the season, the country couple The Dryes, took the stage, Stefani and Shelton were the only two coaches to turn their chairs. Her rendition of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s hit “Islands in the Stream” delighted both coaches.

Shelton and Stefani were even more intrigued when they found out they were dealing with a married couple, which of course led to an apparent comparison between the contestants and the two coaches vying for them.

As seen in the video, after The Dryes performed, Shelton gave an odd pitch with a few dad jokes before saying, “I would be honored to be your COUNTRY coach” (emphasis on the word “country”). Stefani then asked the couple, “I’m not sure exactly what kind of music you want to do — all country music?”

The Dryes nodded confidently. Coach Camila Cabello then intervened: “That’s not a good sign” and Stefani laughed. This prompted Katelyn Dryes to reply, “No, I think you’re great Gwen, I really do.”

Her husband Derek then made the controversial statement to Stefani: “You’re the Dolly Parton of your genre.”

Stefani promptly covered her face with both hands and said, “Oh my god. this is so crazy Thank you very much!”


This is where the confusion comes in

Most people would consider it a great honor to be compared to Dolly Parton. After all, she’s one of the most revered country singers of all time. Lately, however, Gwen has been like that tries to convince folks that country music is their genre.

During the premiere week of “The Voice,” Stefani tried to land the so-called Cuban cowboy On her team, she told him, “I’m basically country now, too. I went to the country.” The former No Doubt frontwoman had a similar sentiment when trying to convince another country artist to Jay Allento join Team Gwen.

Many fans weren’t happy with Stefani’s claim that she was a country artist. For example, A Facebook user commented “Just because Blake made her whine on a couple of his songs doesn’t make her a country singer.”

So, if Stefani is the Dolly Parton of her genre, what genre was Dryes referring to exactly? When he says it’s a different genre than country, that would mean he doesn’t see Stefani as the country artist she claims to be. The statement wouldn’t make sense if he says she’s the country’s Dolly Parton because Dolly Parton is the country’s Dolly Parton. The compliment loses some of its clarity.


Shelton had an interesting take on the comment

After “The Voice” aired, Shelton tweeted, “@GwenStefani may be the Dolly Parton of her genre, but I’m THE BLAKE SHELTON of me! It’s an honor to be your Country Coach @thedryesmusic #TeamBlake #TheVoice.”

A fan replied, “Who said Gwen Stefani was the Dolly Parton of her genre? That’s insulting,” to which someone replied“You and Blake are both so obnoxious.”

Another viewer tweeted, “Stop trying to please Dolly Parton’s talent for you or your wife. Trust the audience, we would not make such accusations.”

The Dryes eventually settled on Team Blake.
