Singer native Gyth Rigdon took second place in "The Voice" finale Tuesday.
Maelyn Jarmon was named the winner.
In part one of the season 16 finale, which aired on NBC Monday night, the 25-year-old Singer native performed three times. He sang one solo cover, a duet with his coach, Blake Shelton, and debuted his first original single. Rigdon was one of three members of Shelton's team to make it to the finale.
That single, "Proof I've Always Loved You," made it to the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Country charts. His Monday night performance of "Once In A Blue Moon" made it to No. 6 on the list.
"You sound good, and you don't sound like anyone else," Shelton told Rigdon before their performance Monday.
Rigdon told the show's host, Carson Daly, that the first concert he attended was that of his coach, Blake Shelton, in Fort Polk. In week 13 of the competition, Rigdon sang one of Shelton's songs.
"I can definitely imagine hearing Gyth on the radio right now. He fits in with the new generation of country artists. He just has that kind of connection with the fan base," Shelton said.
In the two-hour finale Tuesday, Rigdon performed "Hold My Hand" with Hootie and the Blowfish. Each of the final four contestants received a 2019 Toyota Rav 4.
