Casi was over the top excited about Luke Bryan because she wants to walk down the isle to his music. Blake said both Casi and Ashley have a classic Country voice and there’s only one spot on his team for that. He gave them “How Blue” song. Casi’s strategy was to sing her part of the song as much her own as possible to make her stand-out from Ashley. Blake called it his “toughest battle.”

After their Battle performance, Blake told them he needed to get them both out of each others lane, and hoped that they’d both stay on the show since the other coaches are dying to beat him with a Country artist. The BATTLE WINNER was CASI. Blake said she has an “electric energy” when she’s on stage.

Adam pushed his button to steal Ashley. Then Gwen and Alicia followed. Adam pointed-out that he mentioned that he thought Ashley won the Battle. Gwen promised to help Ashley on how to work the stage “as a girl.” Alicia reminded Ashley that Adam was the only coach who didn’t turn during her Blind Audition.
