All season on NBC’s “The Voice,” Sundance Head has shown coaches that he can slay just about anybody’s song.

He flawlessly tackled hits like Alicia Keys’ “No One,” Maren Morris’ “My Church” and The Judds’ “Love Can Build a Bridge.”

But on Dec. 12, during part one of the reality sing-off show’s finale, the 37-year-old Team Blake favorite proved exactly why he belonged in the competition. And, he did that by singing three songs — one of which included his self-penned tune, “Darlin’ Don’t Go.”

Sundance wrote the pleading country ballad for his lovely wife, Misty. Prior to his performance, he said, “I wrote this song just to let her know how much she means to me, and that I can’t live without her.”

Once Sundance hit the stage, it was clear that his wife was all that was on his mind. A fog of smoke filled the floor beneath him, while he bared his falsetto and soulful vocals on lyrics that begged her to stay. At one point, the camera panned to his bride who was singing along to the song from her seat in the audience. But heck, who could blame her? It’s totally catchy and worthy of a second listen!

Following his performance, Sundance received a standing ovation from all four judges. Coach Blake Shelton said, “What I’m most impressed with is this show has finally discovered somebody that it is beyond me how in the hell this guy has not been discovered before.”

Blake’s words proved to be true, as Sundance was indeed crowned the winner of season 11. A cloud of confetti poured onto Sundance, as he celebrated his triumphant win by turning out an impromptu performance of “Darlin’ Don’t Go” with his wife by his side. You can catch his winning moment below!
