Jason “Sundance” Head was the 2016 winner of The Voice. The soulful country singer was mentored by Blake Shelton and his versions of Alicia Keys’ “No One”, Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”, and his original “Darlin’ Don’t Go” became chart topping Billboard hits during the season. The singer draws a strong comparison to Chris Stapleton with his Southern rock attitude with old school R&B vibe. Blake took Sundance Head on tour with his spring and it’s time for his first single. Since The Voice Sundance has been touring non-stop as a headliner and is currently crossing the Midwest and even reaching off the beaten path places like Idaho, Wyoming, and North Dakota. His debut single has just been released, “How I Want To Be” on Republic Records (UMG Recordings). It’s a classic wedding song with lines with “for the rest of forever together is how I want to be” and Head’s soulful delivery matches the emotion. It’s available on iTunes starting this week. The song was originally recorded years ago with a faster tempo and even a choir backing the track. It’s a fascinating comparision, which is your favorite? Ironically, four years earlier Sundance competed on American Idol but only made it to the semi-finals.
