If you like your music with a side of twang and a nice beard, you're going to want to be watching this season of NBC's The Voice for one of Shreveport, LA's own talented musicians. Season 23 debuted Monday, March 6th and I've been watching the two-hour blind audition shows faithfully and I still haven't seen our local favorite. That means he has to be on tonight, right? WRONG! We have another week, ie two episodes, of blind auditions after tonight. *sigh* Knowing our luck, he'll be the last one shown on the final night of blinds!

Wondering who I'm talking about? Of course, you are! Alex Troegel from Ole Whiskey Revival is one step closer to making his dreams come true. If you've never seen Ole Whiskey Revival play, you're missing out. Think honky tonk southern rock outlaw country. I absolutely love watching these guys play and try to catch their shows whenever I can. Alex Troegel aka Al Boogie, their lead singer, from Mansfield, has auditioned for The Voice and will be appearing this season during the blind auditions on KTAL Channel 6. That's all we know at this point.

Here's the deal, Alex can't say much about what's going on at this point for legal reasons but it's Blake Shelton's last season as a coach on The Voice and if he has the chance to be on Team Blake, and doesn't take it, I'm going to wring his neck myself. The other coaches this season are Chance to Rapper, Niall Horan, and Kelly Clarkson. While I love Kelly, I think Blake is the perfect fit for Alex's style.

Alex is the 37-year-old son of Bill and Sherri Troegel. He grew up in Mansfield, went to LSU Shreveport, and is married to Stacey Lynn Brown Troegel. He's also a father, a dog dad, a good musician, an entertainer, and by all accounts, a good guy.

What does the future hold for Alex? He can't say. But I sure hope it's a spot on Team Blake and a straight shot to the finals and then on to fame and fortune! Are you watching, too? Who are your favorites so far? Hit me up using the 'chat' function in our free app or shoot me an email at erin.bristol@townsquaremedia.com. Good luck, Alex!
