Kenadi Dodds Proves Her Young Talent With Impromptu Carrie Underwood Cover, With Support From The Swon Brothers

The Swon Brothers – a music duo who found their fame on NBC’s The Voice in 2013 – had quite an unexpected guest appearance during one of their shows in 2017. Most guest appearances are surprise celebrities, or other artists who performed on the same release as the band that is currently performing. In this clip, however, the stage was blown away by 12-year-old Kenadi Dodds: a young kid with a lot of heart. Together, they all performed the classic hit “Blown Away” by Carrie Underwood.

The band should have decided to play “Blown Away” because that’s exactly how the audience must have felt when they watched the dazzling performance. Donning a Swon Brothers shirt and prancing on stage with more confidence than people twice her age, young Kenadi Dodds shocked the crowd with her wonderful vocal talent and wealth of potential. In the words of Colton Swon himself: “I think this could be the next Carrie Underwood right here”. Watch the impromptu performance below:

What’s all the more impressive about this performance, which applies to both Kenadi Dodds and The Swon Brothers, is that it was entirely unplanned. The Swon Brothers heard Kenadi Dodds at sound check, and from there, they invited her onto the stage during their own set. This shows both Dodds’ incredible talent from the outset, and also the interactive, kind personalities of The Swon Brothers to give this prodigy a chance at being on stage in a packed venue.

The Swon Brothers are an American country music duo from Muskogee, Oklahoma, who formed in 2013. That very year, they took part in the fourth season of The Voice, where contestants are judged and coached by some of music’s biggest stars. Despite not winning the competition, they reached the top 12 and secured a record deal with Arista Nashville, which is a part of the Sony Music Group. After this deal, they released the single “Later On”, which has sold over 200,000 copies in the US since 2014.

In response to the experience with The Swon Brothers on the whole, Kenadi Dodds said: “Huge thank you to The Swon Brothers for creating such a magical experience for me in 2017 when they took time out of their concert to create a moment for me. I will always remember and cherish this moment.” Having such a magical moment at such a young age can only do wonders in inspiring someone to pursue their dreams; as we came to find out, Dodds continued her pursuit of stardom.

This performance would not be Kenadi Dodds’ only dazzling performance. She competed on the 2020 edition of America’s Got Talent at age 15 and played both the guitar and the piano throughout her time in the competition, alongside singing. Dodds flew through the audition, Judge Cuts, Quarterfinals, and Semi-Finals stages of the competition before falling short of the Top 5.
