The semi-finals were a tough road for Ian as he had to sing for the instant save, but he pulled through in the end. This Saugerties, New York native is now hoping that either he or Jim Ranger ends up becoming Blake’s eighth champion on his 19th season as a coach. Ian’s voice is instantly recognizable for its low register and classic country twang. He surprisingly was a one-chair turn in the blind auditions with his cover of “Colder Weather.” Ian then performed “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” in the battles and “Beautiful Crazy” in the knockouts. In the first live show he took on “Make You Feel My Love” and was America’s choice to advance to the semi-finals. Based on a suggestion from Kelly Clarkson, he performed “Angel” in the Top 9 and earning unanimous praise.

Here’s his NBC bio: “Ian Flanigan grew up playing music and was writing songs by age 11. Being a songwriter has always been his dream, and after high school he traveled around playing in bands and performing where he could. After years of gigging, Ian had fallen into an unhealthy lifestyle. He made the decision to put himself through rehab and has now been sober for four years. After getting sober he met his life partner, Ayla, and her daughter, Kamea. They created their own production company and now tour full-time from their motorhome. Being a traveling musician and a dad is hard work, but Ian is grateful that his family supports him and enjoys coming along for the ride.”
