Muskogee brothers Zach, Colton Swon take The Voice season 4 stage, choose Team Blake Shelton

LOS ANGELES - Well, it didn't take long for a couple of Oklahomans to flex their pipes on the new season of The Voice.

Zach and Colton Swon, of Muskogee, were the first to take the stage Monday night. With guitars in hand, the brothers strode confidently to their spots behind the judges, singing a Tom Petty classic, "American Girl."

It took only a few moments for the games to begin between Oklahoma country star Blake Shelton and Shakira. Both egged each other on until the Latin pop artist could hold off no longer. Followed close behind by Shelton, the Okies from Muskogee had become the first selection of the night.

"(Colton's) known as the face, I'm known as the talent," Zach Swon told the judges. Click on the photo above for more on season 4 of The Voice. For mobile users, check out (

Ultimately, Usher would vie for the duo's attention as well, but once the song was over and the clapping subsided, Shelton quickly went to work.

"You know, us Okies got to stick together," Shelton said. 

They did. The country-rock singers took little time picking Team Blake.

The Swon brothers join the beginnings of Shelton's squad, comprised of Texan Danielle Bradbury, Christian Porter and Rhian and Cara Morgan -- twin sisters -- of Rochester, N.Y.
