When you are going through one of the darkest moments of your life, it’s not unusual to ask for all the prayers you can get… even when you are an up-and-coming country music star.

That’s exactly what “The Voice” champion and Team Blake standout Sundance Head did on Dec. 29, when he headed to his Facebook page to ask for prayers for his father. “My pops is in the er with a ruptured aorta,” wrote Sundance, who recently released his first video for his new song “Darlin’ Don’t Go.” “Please pray or him and our family.”

After an hour, Sundance’s status was updated to let fans know that his father was headed into surgery. A short time later, another update was posted. “Still in surgery- symptoms began at 8am this morning so possibly when rupture happened however he was in the woods hunting been there since Monday- hard headed stayed in woods though he thought he was having severe back pains. He finally was packed in a truck and driven to a hospital this evening. We do know aneurism bleed out in stomach somehow from this morning till now was able to clot on its own with out bleeding out elsewhere. This is all we know right now. Will keep posting with any updates. All I know is I know how much faith sundance has and the power of prayer so fambase keep them coming! Thank you Misty.”

Despite a night of uncertainty, Sundance gave a hopeful update on the morning of December 30. “Pops is stable,” he wrote. “Sedated while they start dialysis for his kidneys. Blood pressure still good. Nurses are taking great care of him. Thank you all for he prayers they are working. Once he made it through surgery surgeon came out and spoke to us and around his neck was a chain with a big cross so I knew he was in the hands he needed to be in. Will post more soon once we find out more thank you all god bless.”


We send our prayers and well wishes to Sundance and his entire family during this tough time.
