Written by Pearce, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne, Pearce glides through the powerful lyrics singing, The year that I got married and divorced / Held on for dear life but I still fell off the horse / From a Miss to Mrs. / Then the other way around / The year I was goin’ live it up / Now I’m never going to live it down.”

“Writing 29 brought me out of such a lost space and helped me heal so feeling the connections these songs have created reminded me that we’re not alone,” Pearce said in a statement. “I was so grateful to share ’29’ for my first appearance on The Voice! As my world shifted from despair to joy, I know the value of a show that gives dreamers like me a chance to sing their truth.”

The Voice coaches, John Legend and Blake Shelton, also performed at the semi-finals with songs “You Deserve it All” and “Come Back as a Country Boy,” respectively.
