The man has been crafting his skill for years; those skills have taken him to TV's big hit, "The Voice." Did you know you may have seen him singing here in Northern Colorado?

It's always fun when you see someone on TV and realize its someone from where you live. How far will he make it in the current season of "The Voice?"


Look at that guy. He's about to leave Colorado for Nashville. A couple years later, he's now being seen on "The Voice" on "Team Blake," after doing a great cover of a Country music song.

I discovered that he, whether solo or with his friend Jack Stein, used to "kick it," as they say, around the Loveland/Fort Collins area. I definitely tracked down some dates that happened in a few of the Downtown Loveland bars. Did you ever see him/them?

Pourhouse, in Downtown Loveland, often hosts small bands and solo artists, including the man that's now in Nashville competing for fame on "The Voice."


He's Tanner Fussell. He grew up in Georgia, but in 2019 made a move to the Northern Colorado area. He and friend Jack formed 'Steelin' Hearts' which had some gigs, as well as Tanner having solo gigs around the area.

When you're an up and coming singer, getting as much exposure as you can is imperative. You may have heard Tanner on KRFC, as well:

In 2020, Tanner made his way back to Georgia and the Nashville area.

His hard work has paid off, as recently, Blake Shelton turned his chair during the 'Blind Auditions."

Good Luck, Tanner!

Top 10 Country Albums of the 1990s

Country music came into its own in a big way during the 1990s. With more FM radio stations offering artists exposure, blockbuster album sales followed -- as did superstardom for acts such as Shania Twain and Garth Brooks, both of whom had multiple full-length projects be certified diamond, for shipping in excess of 10 million albums.

Yet the '90s also introduced several new acts that would shape country music for decades to come, and found veteran artists receiving a bump in notoriety (and record sales), courtesy of a mainstream musical climate that embraced the genre like never before. Read on for The Boot's picks for the Top 10 Country Albums of the 1990s.
