Muskogee’s Swon Brother delivered a poignant and tuneful tribute to the late, great George Jones tonight during “The Voice” live playoffs.

Zach and Colton Swon took to the piano and guitar to perform an acoustic rendition of The Possum’s classic “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes.” It showcased both their voices and musicianship as well as their diehard love for country music.

George Jones died April 26 at the age of 81.

The Swon Brothers are competing in the Top 12 on Season 4 of the hit reality TV show. The first duo to make it to the show’s live founds, they are among the three remaining contestants on fellow Oklahoman Blake Shelton’s team.

All 12 finalists performed on tonight’s live episode, and voting is now open. To vote, go to http://www.nbc.com/the-voice or buy the song on iTunes, since downloads there also count as votes. Unlike the previous rounds, this time out, the coaches have no saves and no say in who stays and who goes: It’s all up to the public voters now.

“The Voice” performance recap will air from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday on NBC, following by the live elimination episode from 8 to 9 p.m.
