The Voice’s Holly Tucker Trades High Heels for Combat Boots!
Tucker Poses in Boot Campaign Combat Boots to Express Gratitude for Troops
Austin, TX (September 2, 2013) — Fans of NBC’s hit show “The Voice” will remember Season 4 vocalist, Holly Tucker. The Texas native was a “Top 6” contestant on Blake Shelton’s team. This beauty and incredible talent is the newest addition to the Boot Campaign family with her official “Boot Shoot” now released on http://BootCampaign.com She joins the likes of Dolly Parton, Troy Aikman, cast of Sons of Anarchy, the Texas Rangers, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and 350+ musicians, actors, professional athletes and other newsmakers who are lacing up with the Boot Campaign—a national 501c3 nonprofit that cultivates awareness, promotes patriotism, and provides assistance to military, past and present, and their families.
Holly began singing from a very early age and got on stage for the first time at her home church of FBC Woodway when she was 7 years old. She got serious about her career around the age of 12 when she jumped into a little car with her parents and traveled the highways of Texas and Louisiana, singing in country music shows, talent competitions, churches, local opry shows, and radio shows.
The Voice was the most recent of Holly’s successes. In July 2012, she was in Dallas for a different singing opportunity and had some spare time. She heard about the open call auditions for the show and decided to audition last minute. She ended up making it through a few callbacks that landed her a spot in the blind auditions. On that stage, Holly sang Garth Brooks’ song, “To Make You Feel My Love” and got the attention of all four coaches who turned around to campaign to get her on their team. Holly chose Blake Shelton as her coach, and the rest, as they say, is history. She competed and made it to the Top 6 out of over 40,000 hopeful auditioners in the nation.
The Boot Campaign is a national 501c3 nonprofit that is dedicated to showing tangible appreciation of our active military, raising awareness of the challenges they face upon return and supporting their transition home. The Boot Campaign cultivates awareness, promotes patriotism, and provides assistance to military, past and present, and their families. Through the sale of its signature military combat boots, general public donations, and corporate sponsorship, the Boot Campaign operates five distinct initiatives — Jobs, Housing, Wellness, Urgent Assistance and Family Support– that are caring for military personnel, past and present, healing from a variety of physical and emotional combat wounds, embodying the campaign motto that, “When They Come Back, We Give Back.” www.BootCampaign.com
