Kirk Jay was a contestant on The Voice Season 15 and a member of Team Blake. His blind audition of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band song "Bless the Broken Road" turned all four chairs.

Before The Voice

"Kirk grew up in Alabama extremely poor and remembers times when there was no electricity, water or even food. At five years old, Kirk started playing drums at church and singing in the choir. In 2014, Kirk met a music manager who brought him to perform for Teddy Gentry, the bass player for the band Alabama. In 2015, Kirk started doing open mics and shocked the audience with his country sound. Word spread and bar owners started booking him. Currently, he travels the South with his band, Kirk Jay & Kuntry Funk."
