The Arkansas high school teacher won hearts early on with his down-home country rocker style and sweet demeanor. A family man, Barrett Baber constantly spoke of his wife and children throughout the competition.
The competition among the four Voice finalists was fierce. Any one of the four deserved a win, but it was Kentucky college student Jordan Smith who took the crown. Gwen Stefani's remaining contestant Jeffery Austin came in fourth place. Barrett Baber took the third place spot. Blake Shelton's second finalist Emily Ann Roberts came in second place.
