Chris Cauley Is Eliminated on The Voice

Los Angeles, CA – On Monday night March 5th, Chris Cauley made his second appearance on the reality TV show “The Voice” and was eliminated from the competition. That night he sang in a battle round with another singer, Tony Lucca. Although Tony was chosen over Chris to continue on in the competition, many viewers felt that Chris had the better performance.

“I’ve been contacted left and right like crazy about a lot of things and just people in general that I’m fans of have reached out, saying what a great job and how I got robbed and all this stuff,” says Cauley. “And honestly, I kind of giggle at it because that’s not really my personality to say Oh I should have beat that. I should have won.’ That’s definitely not me. But for other people to say it, I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t feel good.”

Chris has ties to Bath County. His grandparents are Pete and the late Faye Cauley of Millboro. Faye was a big musical influence on Chris and video of Faye singing was included in segments about Chris on the show. As a result of his appearance on The Voice, Chris is working on a new management deal.

But being overworked and exhausted has also come along as a result of his appearance on the show. Chris feels he hasn’t handled very well the onslaught of attention that the show brought. He says he wasn’t prepared for it and is now learning to pace himself, understanding that he has to say no sometimes.

“I honestly don’t have any regrets,” says Cauley. “Even with the same result I would do it all over again. I learned so much. I honestly did not hear one negative comment from any of the coaches the entire time. Any type of post on Facebook or Twitter or even on the The Voice Facebook page, not one negative thing was said about me and so I’m very, very proud of that.”

Chris will continue to make his living singing, as he always has. He primarily sings soul and blues and tours around the country. He’s also toured the world as part of stage shows.

“I just thank everyone for the support because I did get a ton of emails from Bath County,” says Cauley. “And I just love it that a place I’ve spent most of my childhood, it’s nice to have that support, nowadays it’s almost like a full circle kind of feeling for me. All the support means a lot more than I’ll ever be able to express, so I just thank everyone.”
