“The Voice” Winner Sundance Head Readies New Single Featuring a “Country Music Hall of Fame” Member

After winning Season 11 of The Voice in December 2016, Sundance Head joined his TV coach Blake Shelton on a 12-date tour of the West Coast and Midwest in February and March. But the Texas native has also been busy in the studio working on his debut album with producer Buddy Cannon.

While Sundance kept many of the album’s details under his hat, so to speak, he did reveal to Nash Country Daily that his debut single will feature a “special guest.”

“We just recorded the new single with Buddy Cannon, and it’s a wonderful song,” says Sundance to NCD. “The reason it’s taking so long to get this single out is because I wanted to make sure the song had integrity and wasn’t just a thrown-together piece of music to stay relevant. I wanted to make a record we’re all proud of and could listen to and I think we’re headed in that direction.

“I can’t tell you everything about the new single just yet, but I will tell you there will be a special guest on the single. She’s in the Country Music Hall of Fame and she sings like and angel. I’m really excited for it.”

The “Country Music Hall of Fame” hint narrows it down to a handful of ladies, including Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Connie Smith, Emmylou Harris, Barbara Mandrell and Brenda Lee.

And here’s an additional sidebar: Barbara Mandrell is a native Texan who recorded “Treat Him Right,” a song co-written by Sundance’s father, Roy Head.
