In addition to being Miss Mississippi, Brand was also crowned Miss Mississippi’s Outstanding Teen in 2017.

“The Voice” will be televised on NBC at 7 p.m. central time on Mondays and at 8 p.m. central time on Tuesdays. Kelly Clarkson will return as one of the four coaches for the 2023 season, as well as Blake Shelton. New judges this year are Niall Horan, a former member of the boy band One Direction, and Chance the Rapper.
