NBC's The Voice contestant returns to SC roots

Posted: Updated:

From a small town in South Carolina, to the big stage in front of a national audience, The Voice contestant Warren Stone's run on TV is over but his career is just taking off.

Stone has been playing guitar and singing for 15 years. He said he's inspired by Luke Bryan and Eric Church. Team Adam picked him up in the blind auditions of The Voice.

"All I really wanted to do is get the one chair. From that it started that feeling you want to go another round," Stone explained.

Stone is a country singer from Hannah, South Carolina. He's also a full-time firefighter and father of three. In the Knockout Round, he lost to Sarah Simmons' rendition of "Wild Horses".

"A lot of people say or have asked how it feels to go home. It was a great experience. They are class act people. They taught me a ton I'm going to take through this career," he said of his run on the show.

Once returning home, he picked up his old gig at Beaver Bar in Murrells Inlet.

"The whole experience on The Voice was incredible. I just got good exposure," he said of planning the future.

Stone said he's taking three months off from work to pursue music full time.
