The Swon Brothers perform in Bradenton

Sam Woolf has moved to Nashville, but taking his place in Bradenton, for one night at least, are two other TV talent show heartthrobs.

The Swon Brothers finished in third place on "The Voice" in 2013. They signed with Arista Records later that year and released their first hit single, "Later On," just over a year ago.

Then, in May of last year, Zach and Colton Swon were featured in a "People Country" photo spread about "Country's Sexiest Men."

Now they're heading our way. The Swon Brothers will be in Bradenton on Saturday for a show at Joyland.

Their music is firmly rooted in country music, but there's also a lot of mainstream rock in the Swon Brothers' sound. The first song they did on "The Voice" was "American Girl" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. In the final, live shows, they performed songs by Loggins and Messina, Bob Seger and the Eagles, before ending with a Brad Paisley song.

Just a couple of weeks ago, the Swon Brothers jammed with Mike Huckabee on the last musical segment ever of his Fox News show.

Details: 7 p.m. (doors) Jan. 24, Joyland, 5520 14th St., Bradenton. Tickets: $12.50 plus service charge in advance. $17.50 at the door. Information: (941) 756-6060, joylandcountry.com.
