The Winners’ Club: A List of the Best ‘Voice’ Contestants and Where They Are Now
The Season 8 winner—and the sole victor for former coach Pharrell Williams—released a self-titled EP in 2015 and the full-length album A Good Storm in 2016. Fredericks opted to become an independent artist in 2017; he is currently working on new music and touring.
In the aftermath of his Voice victory, reigning champ Head joined his coach, Blake Shelton, on his 2017 tour. Head has also recorded a yet-to-be-released single that reportedly features a guest spot from a Country Music Hall of Fame singer.
Team Blake’s Pope—the show’s first female winner—released her album Frame by Frame in 2013 (which bowed at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 charts) and a follow-up EP, Summer, in 2016. Since her Season 3 crowning, Pope has toured with Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry. Additionally, Pope’s duet with Chris Young, “Think of You,” earned a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
Immediately after his Season 9 win, Smith (coached by Adam Levine) set chart records: He became the first artist to hold the No. 1 and 2 spots on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs simultaneously with Voice numbers “Mary, Did You Know” and “Hallelujah.” In 2016, he performed “You Are So Beautiful” with David Foster and released two studio albums, “Something Beautiful” and “’Tis the Season.”
