MUSKOGEE, Okla. - Zach and Colton Swon are officially in the national spotlight, and the musical duo's mother couldn't be proud.
"It seems like these doors just opened for them," Tammy Swon said. "I think good things are going to happen for them."
The Swon Brothers leaped onto NBC's The Voice stage Monday night armed with a pair of six-strings and voices well-suited for country rock music.

The brothers sang Tom Petty's "American Girl" and selected fellow Oklahoman Blake Shelton to coach them up, despite receiving attention from Shakira and Usher.
Tammy Swon called her sons' decision a "no-brainer."
''If we are ever on that show, we want to be on Blake's team,'" Tammy Swon recalled her boys' saying.
Zach and Colton are 28 and 24, respectively. Their mother says they frequently perform in Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas. She believes competing on The Voice is the perfect next step for them.
"It's what they've worked for," she said. "They have set their minds to this."
The Voice is still airing the "blind auditions." NBC has not said when The Swon Brothers will make their next appearance.
