Barrett Baber didn't win season nine of The Voice on Tuesday--as many anticipated--but he's certainly no loser. One of two contestants from Blake Shelton's team, he and Emily Ann Roberts were thrilled to make the finals.

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.

Fans will be shocked if Barrett Baber doesn't land a recording contract based on his time on The Voice and the contacts made throughout the whole experience.

Arkansas Matters reports that the first thing Barrett Baber wants to do is spend some much-needed time with his family. After that he will likely get back to making music--and teaching high school students.

Were you among those convinced that Barrett Baber was going to emerge victorious from The Voice on Tuesday night?
