Shirley native Gwendlyn Kay brought a helping of heartfelt country to Round 3 of the Showcase, performing with guitar accompaniment by Glenn Parish.

Every single judge noted the quality of Kay's songs, and were blown away when she announced that she'd recently turned 21.

Guest judge Travis Hill wrote, "Fantastic commercial country songwriter. Definitely has a future in the business. Can't believe she's 21." Judge Mandy McBryde said "she's definitely got some marketability and a few hit songs."

CT wrote "very good, nice songwriting, lots of attitude in her voice. Hell yeah for small towns." Grayson Shelton noted Kay's "good stage presence, very confident." He wrote, "Good storytelling. She can carry a show with good songs and crowd interaction."

More photos and a video are available after the jump.
