Rolling Stone named Sundance Head’s Blind Audition as one of the best on the show, as he performed Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.” His win was a breakthrough, after the singer had previously competed on American Idol but didn’t get past the top 16.

During the Season 11 finale, Sundance Head performed the original song “Darlin’ Don’t Go” and even went on to join his Coach Blake Shelton on the 2017 “Doing It To Country Songs” Tour.

“I’m just elated and really excited about being able to perform with a great entertainer and learn something from him while I’m on the road,” Sundance Head said in a press release on Shelton’s website about the tour. “It’s going to be the most fun thing I’ve ever done.”

Sundance Head said Shelton made a genuine effort to support him and stay in touch after his win, and even after the tour.

Sundance Head has multiple tour dates coming up for events in May and June, including the Big Cabo Fest in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and the Red White & Free Festival in Texas on the Fourth of July. Tickets are available on his website.

He plans to keep making more music for a long time to come.

“Before The Voice, I was a musician,” he said to the Washington Post. “I loved playing music, ‘cause it makes me happy. And that’s who I am whether we are successful in the world of music outside of Texas or not. I’m going to be happy touring or I’m going to be happy going back to Texas and playing bars for 30 or 40 people. That’s just who I am.”
