TN's 'Voice' Contestant Paluso at Discovery Park
By WestKyStar Staff
UNION CITY - Keith Paluso, contestant on NBC’s “The Voice” and new lead singer with Blood, Sweat and Tears, will perform at Discovery Park of America's Rhythm on the Rails, Thursday June 13th. 

Those who have been attending the summer music series 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 Thursday, 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. 

Paluso's 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 Jim Bondurant and Chad Karnes and The Missing Fifth.

Rhythm on the Rails is sponsored by Blue Bank Resort, The Citizens Bank, Volunteer Distributing and Williams Country Sausage.

The Rhythm on the Rails programs occur Thursday evenings, May 2 – June 27 with the doors opening weekly at 5 pm. Discovery Park of America members are admitted at no charge and non-members are charged $5. A cash bar is provided and food trucks will be on site. No outside food or beverage is allowed.
