Huntley's Latest Career Milestone Is Major & Has a Sweet Connection to His Childhood
A dream come true for The Voice Season 24 winner!
As if winning The Voice Season 24 isn't a big enough dream come true, singer Huntley just crossed a major accomplishment off his bucket list. A lifelong Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, Huntley was ecstatic to perform the national anthem before their game in early January 2024, and he reflected on the special moment on Instagram.

"If you know me you know my whole life I’ve been obsessed with two things, one being music and the other is my love for the @buccaneers," the Team Niall recruit wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of himself as a young child, crouched in his front yard in a tiny football uniform. He continued, "I found out this week that I’ll be singing the national anthem for Prime Time Football on Monday night for the wildcard game between the @buccaneers and the @philadelphiaeagles God is so good. Here’s a picture of the first Halloween I got to pick my costume ❤️."
Huntley was raised in Florida, though he now lives in Virginia with his two children.
After performing on the field, Huntley and his family got to watch the game from a luxe sky box, and fortunately for them, the Bucs absolutely demolished the Eagles, 32 to 9.
Huntley's first NFL performance was actually at SoFi stadium in December, when the Bills played the Chargers. Not only that, he got to perform the halftime show.
And all this just in the first month of his post-Voice career! Huntley was so excited to take home the Season 24 trophy, writing on Instagram, "I love you guys. Thank you for believing in me. Going into this my only expectation was to go out there and create a moment. I’m trying to still wrap my head around all of this honestly and I’m just so grateful for not only this opportunity but the relationships and bonds I made along the way. Season 24 of the voice was definitely one for the history books. God is good ❤️."
Even though all four Coaches had already turned their chairs around, Huntley's fate as a Voice favorite was sealed when he brought his 6-year-old daughter on stage during the Blind Auditions. With a good luck charm like that, no wonder he hit all the right notes.
