The Voice champ Sundance Head: I thought ‘Billy or Wé was going to win’ – This week — that KISS performance included — had a lot of great performances that held a lot of personal weight for you. What was it like getting to perform “Treat Her Right,” your own father’s song, in front of him on such a huge platform? Man, I was just so thankful to have that opportunity because my father brought so much joy to people through his music. He’s an old cat now, and I was just really, really honored to be able to do that for him on the show. And Blake agreeing to that was really special for me, that Blake would even consider it, and then he was fired up about it, also. Blake Shelton’s really a wonderful person, and I’ve just been really, really fortunate to have this summer to spend with him, and learn from him, become friends with him. And to do “Treat Her Right” on the show was amazing. My dad, I didn’t tell him anything that was going on. So when it went down, it went down hard for him. I saw him over there, tearing up. I was trying not to pay attention, ‘cause everybody would’ve been crying if I started crying. – Read more at EW.com
