"Texoma singer makes a splash on The Voice"

PARIS, Texas -- Texoma is known far and wide for its musical talent, from Blake Shelton to Reba McEntire.

But now, up-and-coming artist Trey Rose is joining their ranks after getting national exposure on the stage of NBC's The Voice.

Rose, a native of Hugo, Oklahoma, said his life has been a whirlwind since his Blind Audition aired on Monday's broadcast. He said none of it would have been possible if it wasn't for the Texoma community that jump-started his career 10 years ago on a much smaller stage tucked in the corner of a train depot in Paris, Texas.

"It was open mic night that my dad snuck me into," he explained. "The owner says, 'You have two songs, and you have to get off the stage,' and I remember closing my eyes and strumming a chord and singing a line and everything going silent. And at the moment I realized, 'This is for me.'

The manager ended up letting Rose play until the bar closed that night, becoming his first of many live concerts throughout Texoma.

"Every place in Paris is Trey's home bar," said manager Chris Gunn. "That's just who he is he is: Everyone's friend."

Gunn has been guiding Rose's career since he was 17, watching him grow into the artist he is today.

"It's like seeing your little brother hit a home run after hitting a thousand balls to the fence," Gunn said. "He's worked really, really hard to get to this point."

And that hard work is paying off after turning the chairs of both Adam Levine and fellow Oklahoman Blake Shelton, who served as Rose's role model.

"He's from Ada; that was a huge thing for me as a kid growing up," Rose said. "Here's a guy 45 minutes down the road from me making it work."

"I envision you playing stadiums, just like Jimmy Buffett," Shelton told him.

And Trey Rose even shed a tear, remembering the years his family and friends stood by him. Now they are rooting for him on his musical journey.

"I am super lucky and super thankful to everyone in Texoma, my hometown of Hugo, Paris, Texas... just thank you so much, and I am just out here trying to make you guys proud."

He formed his first band, East of Azle in 2012, toured with the group, but left in 2014 to focus on his own music.

And he admits to balking in the past at the notion of being labeled a country artist because of his Texas roots.

“For so long, people would try to label me … a country artist,” he said in an interview with ABC25 in central Texas. “I fought that so hard. Honestly, I think I lost a lot of opportunities and it really set me back.

“Now I at a point where, ‘I don’t care what you call it. As long as you’re into it and I’m happy with the way it sounds, call it whatever you want.’ I’m me. Just Trey.”

Check out the EP, and you’re likely to find something to like. Closing track “Re” is a standout and certainly has a touch of country flavor. You can check out the acoustic version of another standout track, “Somethin’ Special,” below.

With his versatile vocal range and ability to connect with an audience, Trey Rose has quickly become a sought-after artist at venues across the southern states.
When it comes to musicians, there is a difference between an artist performing a song and one who connects with a room full of strangers through music; Rose is the latter. 
When Rose steps behind a microphone he is a force to be reckoned with, delivering a soulful, yet southern rock tune that captivates audiences young and old. 
Born in Hugo, Oklahoma, he was drawn to music from a young age after hearing a Matchbox Twenty song on the way home from school one day that made him think, ‘I want to do that’. 
However, it wasn’t the “glitz and glam” of being an artist that Rose became obsessed with but the fact that music could impact someone in such a big way. 
“Music is the only thing I’ve found that can connect a room of complete strangers. It doesn’t matter what everyone has going on in their lives, where they came from, or who they are, in that moment the right song can make you forget about all that for a while.”  
But don’t let his small-town roots fool you, Rose is anything but “just another country artist”. 
Considering himself an eclectic artist, Rose never wanted to be pigeonholed to one genre but instead just connect with audiences through his own sound.         
“I fought so hard against being labeled in just one genre but now I’m at a point where I don’t care what people call it, I just want to share my art and connect with those who love my sound.” 
However, don’t let his whirlwind career on the music scene fool you, Rose is described as a genuine and humble man to which he credits to his two-children. 
“My kids are the real rock stars in all of this and my biggest supporters. It takes a really strong kid to have your parent come home, and then leave to play shows week after week, but they just handle it.” 
While Rose may be considered a veteran in the music industry, the career he is destined for is only just beginning.
