The final four contestants were all well-qualified to walk away with the prize. However, Josh Gallagher left in fourth place, We’ McDonald came in third, Billy Gilman was a close second while Sundance Head won the title and the recording contract.

Sundance Head triumphant and deserving as “The Voice” winner

Country singer Head, 37 years old fell to his knees when Carson Daly announced his name as the winner.

The singer was the first alumnus from American Idol to move forward and take the title on “The Voice.” He had nothing but great things to say about his coach, Blake Shelton who now has his fifth victory on the show. Head is the son of Roy Head who also was known as a singer in his own right. As the name was announced, the entire Head family came on stage, including mom, dad, his wife, and children.

Along with the help he received from his coach, Sundance gave honor to his wife as the one who helped him through some of the most difficult years in his life. His final song was a dedication to her, singing through the tears and confetti while sharing the stage with best friends from the show and the family who loved and supported him through the entire journey.
