Will Snyder, a 22-year-old from London, Ky., boasts a strong, gritty voice that is perfect for Southern rock. Will was exposed to the idea of auditioning for Can You Duet by his cousin Belvis, who is 20 years his senior. He has loved music all his life, has been singing in church since he was 16, and has played together with Belvis for about five years. They decided to make the trip to Nashville to try their luck. Much to Will's dismay and complete shock, Belvis did not make the cut, but the judges fell in love with Will's talents almost immediately. Will was upset but knew he would continue in the competition in his cousin's honor, who he credited for getting him hooked on music. Influenced by the likes of Nickelback, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Keith Urban, Will has a variety of musical inspirations that has helped shape his talent.
