Who won season 8 of The Voice?
Sawyer Fredericks, the 16-year-old songwriter from upstate New York, was announced this week as the winner of The Voice, NBC’s popular music competition show.
Sawyer was the youngest contestant on The Voice this year but he seems to have an old soul, singing gritty blues and Americana inflected songs by the likes of Ray LaMontagne, The Soggy Bottom Boys, and John Fogerty.
He was humble about the victory. “I’m feeling great and I kind of want to get back to the farm just to have a little bit of a break from all of this, so I’m excited to get back home,” said Fredericks. “I do not want to move to L.A.!”
Congrats to Sawyer on the win, and I hope you get some rest soon back on the farm.
