Ashland Craftmade it in the Top 10 on Season 13 of NBC’s The Voice, and despite dreaming of a career in country music, Craft secured herself a spot on another honest, outspoken, female’s team when Miley Cyrus convinced Craft to mentor her on her journey.
Craft spoke with CelebSecretsCountry.com to tell them about connecting with her current single, “Trainwreck,” what she learned from Miley on The Voice, and what fans can expect from her in the future. Check out the full interview here.
CSC: You were on The Voice Season 13 and had 3 judges turn their chairs for you: Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine. What was it about Miley that made you choose her as your coach and what did you learn from her? AC: “Initially, the whole time I had it in my head that I would choose Blake and that was still supposed to be the decision when I was standing on stage, I didn’t really think that I was going to have a change of heart. Then Miley and Adam [said their peace], nothing against Blake. I have loved Blake Shelton from the day that I first heard his music and even today he continues to put out hit, after hit, after hit. So that was a weird thing for me. Adam was really adamant to me about going outside the box a little bit, which was kind of eye opening for me because I never saw it like that; I just saw it as Blake’s country so he is going to help me be in the country industry. Then Miley kind of said the same things as well during the blind audition and mentioned she’s close to my age. I think knowing she was close to my age was the one thing that made me want to work with her more and seeing how she chooses to deal with all of the stuff that is being thrown at her. She really pushed me during that time, which I was super grateful for. ‘When I Think About Cheatin’,’ one of the songs that I did on the show, was a very, very, very challenging song for me but she just kept telling me, ‘no, I know you can do this.’ Ultimately it turned out to be one of my favorite performances ever. That’s a lot of what I took away from it. Another thing was how to put my own stamp on cover songs and songs that I didn’t write but still make it seem like I could have written it. When people do cover songs typically they try to sound like the artist or try to replicate it as much as possible, but for me my biggest goal was to be as unique and on brand as possible, and really take the opportunity to show people what I was made of. Overall it was a really beneficial experience.”
Superstar recording artists Miley Cyrus, Chris Stapleton, Zedd and Alessia Cara are all set to perform on the live two-hour Tuesday, May 23 season finale (9-11 p.m. ET/PT) of NBC’s three-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice.”
Global superstar and season 13 coach Miley Cyrus will return to “The Voice” stage to perform her new single, “Malibu,” which is the first single off of her forthcoming album due for release later this fall. “Malibu,” which is available now at all digital retail providers, has hit #1 at iTunes in more than 35 countries and the video is now over 40 million views in just a few days.
In addition to performing on “The Voice,” Cyrus will perform the song for the first time on television on this Sunday’s “Billboard Music Awards,” as well as NBC’s “Today” Summer Concert Series on Friday, May 26 and at iHeart Media’s iHeartSummer ’17 Weekend by AT&T taking place at Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10.
It was a family affair on The Voice on Tuesday night when country legend Dolly Parton joined her goddaughter Miley Cyrus on stage to bless everything with a stunning rendition of her trademark 1973 hit song, “Jolene.”
The duo performed alongside the Pentatonix, who had previously collaborated with Dolly on an a cappella version of “Jolene” this September; Cyrus, as well, is no stranger to the beloved song, as she’s performed it solo on The Voice previously and multiple times live.
However, nothing could top the Queen of Country leading them all in a rousing rendition of her signature ballad, all while clad in bedazzled black leather. Dolly, we’re not worthy.

Miley Cyrus treated teens from My Friend’s Place — a Los Angeles-area center that assists homeless youth — to a special day on The Voice set.
The excited group sported Happy Hippie T-shirts as they toured the backstage, took turns sitting in the famous red judge’s seats and watched a taping of the show. They also got a chance to sit down with the Season 11 coach to discuss the importance of music in their lives and the issues that they face as homeless teens.
“On The Voice I’ve heard so many people’s stories now,” says Cyrus in a clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE. “To be able to have the spotlight on people that don’t usually have the spotlight on them is why I’m here and why it’s really important for y’all to be here and to just see who’s on that stage.”
