DaNica Shirey to join ‘Voice’ winner Craig Wayne Boyd at York concert – Q: What is life after winning “The Voice” like? A: No breaks. Literally after winning the show, I was immediately on a plane to New York and then right back to LA. Three days after, I was playing my first show in Dallas. And I pretty much haven’t stopped since. I was playing on the first of January. And I think I slept in my own bed at this point probably about 10 times. Q: Have you been in touch with your coach Blake Shelton after “The Voice”? A: Absolutely. He’s helped me out big time on the business side of things, helping me put together the right team. (He told me) just to trust my instincts and stick to my guns. – Read more at FlipSide PA
