When Sundance Head was named as “The Voice” champion late last year, Blake Shelton made a promise that he would do anything and everything in his power to make sure that the aspiring country singer succeeds in the music business.

And Blake Shelton is a man of his word.

On Jan. 11, Blake formally announced that he would be adding the Season 11 “The Voice” champion to his 2017 Doing It To Country Songs Tour that kicks off Feb. 16 in Bakersfield, California.

“I’m excited to get back out on the road and bring new music from ‘If I’m Honest,’ some previous hits and a few surprises,” said Blake in a recent press release about the tour, which will also include opener and fellow “The Voice” alum RaeLynn. “Having RaeLynn on the tour again is terrific, and I’m thrilled Sundance is joining and bringing his incredible musical talents.”

And to say that Sundance was thrilled with Blake’s support would be a major understatement.

“I’m just elated and really excited about being able to perform with a great entertainer and learn something from him while I’m on the road. It’s going to be the most fun thing I’ve ever done,” added Sundance in the same release.
