Hillary Scott Picked as Mentor for Team Adam Levine on Season 4 of ‘The Voice’
‘The Voice‘ just got even more country. With Blake Shelton serving as the winning coach for two years in a row and inviting Sheryl Crow to be his team’s mentor for Season 4, his bromantic partner, fellow coach Adam Levine, is sticking it to him and goin’ country, too! Levine has chosen pregnant Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott to serve as his team’s advisor.
“I was so excited to join Adam for a couple days on ‘The Voice,'” the mom-to-be tells Access Hollywood. “It’s an honor to mentor his team… he’s going to have some tough choices to make!”
“I was so happy that Hillary was interested in coming on ‘The Voice’ to mentor my team,” Levine adds. “Maroon 5 and I recorded a song with her for our last studio album and we had a great time collaborating in the studio.”
He continued, “She is an incredible performer and artist. I know my team will be able to learn a lot from her.”
Scott is expecting her first child later this year, so she probably had plenty to talk about with new ‘The Voice’ coach Shakira, who is filling in for Christina Aguilera and just had a baby boy of her own.
But despite any friendly country or maternal associations with Shelton and Shakira, Scott is firmly on Team Adam, suggesting that they will dethrone Team Blake. “I’m sure [we’ll have] way more fun than Blake’s team!,” Scott assures.
Thems fightin’ words.
We’re just glad to see country music even more represented this time around! ‘The Voice’ Season 4 premiere is set for March 25 at 8PM on NBC. In June, Scott will waddle her way onto the stage with the rest of Lady A at the first-ever Taste of Country Music Festival.
