Fort Worth’s Austin Allsup, along with Courtney Harrell, left “The Voice;” Tuesday night. Both were being coached by Blake Shelton.

On Twitter, Allsup said: Thanks so much for everything. This ride’s far from over.”

Allsup, the son of longtime Texas performer Tommy Allsup, is a country singer who has appeared frequently at Billy Bob’s Texas, where he originally met his coach, Shelton, several years ago.

During the show another Texas group made an appearance. Pentatonix, from Arlington, sang Dolly Parton’s 1973 hit “Jolene” joined by Parton goddaughter Miley Cyrus.

In a statement Tuesday Parton says she’s heartbroken about wildfires that tore through the Tennessee county where she grew up but spared the Dollywood theme park that bears her name.

Parton has a Christmas special tonight on NBC, “Christmas Coat of Many Colors.”


Pentatonix has one in mid-December:

“A Pentatonix Christmas Special,” 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14, NBC. The Grammy-winning a cappella group performs their favorite holiday songs, with guests Reba McEntire and another Texas artist, Kelly Clarkson.
