See ‘Voice’ Winner Sundance Head’s Somber ‘Darlin’ Don’t Go’ Video

Texas native wrote the apologetic original tune for his wife, Misty

The Voice‘s Season 11 winner Sundance Head is showing no signs of slowing down since his victory. The 38-year-old Texas native (and son of singer-songwriter Roy Head) has been keeping busy on a whirlwind media tour, preparing for meetings with his new label team at Universal and focusing on creating music.

Somewhere between the show’s final episodes and now, he filmed his debut music video for the original song “Darlin’ Don’t Go,” which he first sang during the finale.

In his signature cowboy hat, Head croons the bluesy, passionate single, which he wrote for his wife Misty to depict the emotional distress of a loved one threatening to walk out. Head combines his heartfelt vocals with a sincere message of contrition, singing “Lord, I know I was wrong to ever to speak to you that way / Well, I promise I will never do it again.” This mood of loss extends to the simple imagery in the video: flickering candlelight, a handwritten note, and an empty dinner table.

The song is currently available on iTunes, along with Head’s other performances from the winning season and a handful of albums from his pre-Voice days.
