Residents offer top picks for Swons at finale

— The Phoenix asked: What song do you think the Swon Brothers should sing on the finale of “The Voice” and why do you think they should sing the song you choose? These are some of the responses:

• Mix some “Footloose,” then some “Thank God I’m a country boy,” then “I’m proud to be an American into “Amazing Grace” ..ROCK IT OUT COUNTRY SWON STYLE.....

— Shelly Rose

• Three Dog Night, “Never been to Spain.”

— TravisLindsy Hayes

• Lee Greenwood, “God Bless the USA”.... I think it is a goosebump arm song ;)

— Debbie Stout

• “Boys Round Here” by their coach Blake Shelton as a tribute to him for helping them make it this far because they are damn good. They should go all the way.

— Cliff Trussell

• Maybe a Brooks and Dunn song, since they were the last big duo in country!

— Jennifer Page-Baughman

• Hank Williams Jr., “Blues Man!!”

— Kyle Stevens

• Zac Brown Band, “Colder weather!” Perfect!

— Nikki McIntosh

• Hank Williams Jr., “Blues Man.” But maybe a Garth Brooks song. Whatever they end up picking to sing, I’m sure they will rock the crowd and nation. Good job guys! Muskogee is proud of U2.

— Michael Thomason

• MOTLEY CRUE!! “Home Sweet Home.” I think with their voices they would sound really good singing that, and plus I love that song.

— Elizabeth


• “Young,” Kenny Chesney.

— Tyler Orcutt

• Garth Brooks’ “Thunder roll!”      

— Brian P Doerner

• “Crazy Girl,” Eli Young Band.

— Keith Coleman

• “Crossfire” (Stevie Ray Vaughan) because it moves and they can pull it off perfectly!

— Mark Hurd

• I would like them to do one of Alabama’s songs.

— Nancy Turtle

• “Cruise!” (by Florida Georgia Line)

— Kelly Markou

• “Piano Man.”
