Billy Gilman fine with second place on 'The Voice'
CRANSTON, R.I. (WJAR) —
Rhode Island singer Billy Gilman told NBC 10 News on Monday that he's fine with a second place finish on NBC's "The Voice."
Gilman stopped by the NBC 10 studios for an extended interview with Frank Coletta.
Gilman, who charted with the country hit "One Voice" when he was 11, stepped back from Nashville when his voice changed.
He went on "The Voice" as part of his reinvention as a pop vocalist. He went all the way to the finale, where he ultimately placed second.
Gilman said that was the outcome he was hoping for.
"A show is out to create the best the show can create. When it's on a high, they just keep pushing out season after season to keep that momentum. Sometimes the artists hurt -- the ones that are previous winners," Gilman said.
Gilman said he has meetings in New York in the spring about possible recording contracts.
Gilman has a concert scheduled for Jan. 28 at The Vets in Providence.
