WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A young lady from Central Texas has made it to the big stage and now is back to perform in Belton.

Holly Tucker was born and raised in Waco and has launched her career after being discovered on The Voice, a national TV show.

Holly Tucker strives to show her fans the real her... so much so she invited News Channel 25 along as she got her hair colored and styled before Thursday night's big show.

"I got on the stage for the very first time when I was about seven years old at First Baptist Woodway and just from there I knew that's what I wanted to do for the rest of my life," Holly Tucker said.

Sing and go to Baylor University... two things she always knew she wanted to do, no questions asked.

"It's something that nobody can ever take away from me. I worked hard for that degree and I get to say from now on until forever that I'm a Baylor alumna, and I'm really just proud of that," Tucker added.

While attending Baylor, Tucker auditioned for several shows and was always told no. So, when "The Voice" auditions rolled into Dallas, Tucker said...

"You know, what the heck, what's another no?"

But this time, it wasn't a no. It was call back after call back until she made the show, turned all four judges' chairs and joined Team Blake.

"He has always been supportive of me, always been encouraging and just tells me to keep going," Tucker said when asked about Blake Shelton. 

So she has... on her first ever tour with her first album, "Steel."

"It's just been such a whirlwind. I've gone so many places that I never even thought I'd go," Tucker added. 

But, Tucker said nothing is quite like being back home in Central Texas.

"It means the world for me to be able to come back home and even four years after 'The Voice' still see that support from my friends and my family and people that are just in this area that still believe in me, that are still rooting for me," Tucker said. 

Tucker performed at Schoepf's Barbecue in Belton Thursday night at 7 p.m. Her performance was a part of the free Texas Country Music Series the restaurant offers.
