UNION CITY, TENN. – Those who have been attending the summer music series Rhythm on the Rails at Discovery Park of America’s train depot were already excited about the upcoming performance by Keith Paluso, a popular contestant on NBC’s “The Voice.” His set has now been moved to Thurs., June 13 to accommodate his exciting new role as the lead singer of 10-time Grammy-nominated, 3-time Grammy-winning band Blood Sweat and Tears. “I have some enormous shoes to fill, with vocalists like David Clayton Thomas and more recently Bo Bice from “American Idol” in the band’s history. I’m hoping I can honor those people and make my own mark on what is now a musical tradition,” said Paluso. “I love performing at Discovery Park of America and I’m really looking forward to being on the Rhythm on the Rails stage June 13.”
When he became a Tennessee park ranger, Paluso hung up his guitar and put music on the back burner. After the birth of his first child, he was inspired to get back into the entertainment business. Selected by Blake Shelton during the Blind Auditions, he was stolen by Adam Levine after the Battle Rounds then saved by Kelly Clarkson following the Knockouts.
Keith’s unique sound is a blend of different styles ranging from rock and country to the rootsy blues that are a deep part of his Memphis heritage. His soulful, husky voice has been compared to the likes of Chris Stapleton, Marc Broussard, and JJ Grey.
Also performing on June 13 are Jimbo Bondurant and Chad Karnes and The Missing Fifth.
