The Voice, TV's current hit sing-off show, is pulling in some big numbers. This week it brought two new cover songs to the Billboard Hot Country top 25 chart.

The Voice 2015 runner-up Emily Ann Roberts performed Cam‘s current hit “Burning House” for one of her finale performances. Apparently it made a big impression on the audience when it was performed. Not only did the performance, which was released on iTunes and other digital stores, instantly become a top seller and land on the #4 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of Jan 2, 2016, but it also pushed Cam‘s original “Burning House” release to the #2 spot.

This just shows how powerful a popular prime time show can be in the world of country music. The charts are determined by a mix of radio airplay, online streaming activity and online/digital sales.
