Here's everything we know about Huntley's family, who are also celebrating his big win .

He was competing for Team Niall, and represents the second win in a row for the new Coach. "I think all you have to do is just watch The Voice every week to just see how ridiculously talented the guy is," Horan said of Huntley. 

"I think for me, winning The Voice wasn't really my goal," Huntley said of his time on the show. "Every time I went out there, my goal — every single time — was to create a moment. Because I never genuinely thought that I was going to win The Voice. I just wanted to create a resumé to show exactly who I was."

Where is Huntley from?

Although he originally hails from Spring Hill, Florida, Huntley introduced himself as being from Fredericksburg, Virginia — which is where he and his family live now. 

He began singing at the age of 4, when he would impersonate Elvis Presley and sing songs. But, he said in his NBC biography that he didn't take singing seriously until he was 14 years old and a friend told him he had a good voice. Midway through college, he moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, but didn't find much luck and retreated from the industry. 

After spending time with his children and working as a booking agent for other musicians, Huntley made the decision to pursue his own singing

"Now that music is coming back into his life, he's been a full-time musician gigging five times a week all over Virginia," his NBC bio states. "Huntley is ready to make music a priority in his life after being a dad first."

Does Huntley have kids?

Huntley has two kids: Stella, who was 6 when her dad auditioned for The Voice, and Michael, who was born in 2021

Stella watched Huntley's Blind Audition from the side of the stage with tears in her eyes, even mouthing some of the words to the song. When the singer turned all four Coaches' chairs, he asked if he could bring Stella onto the stage as he made his decision of whose team to join. 

"Can I ask you guys a favor?" he asked. "I had a dream that my daughter came on stage, is that OK?"

They Coaches all agreed and greeted Stella. "What did you think of your dad?" Niall asked. "He was really good," Stella said. 

Huntley gave Stella the microphone and let her announce the pick for Coach Niall. (You can watch both Huntley's audition and Stella's star turn in the video below.)

Is Huntley married?

Huntley is not married but, according to People, he is currently dating a woman named Hannah Cook.
