Shelton said that Flanigan had "the most unique voice maybe
I've ever heard on The Voice." Usher called him a "top gun." Gwen Stefani said, "nobody has a voice that sounds like that, it's just so rare."
Flanigan had launched a new chapter of his career, signing with Reviver Records for an opportunity to pursue recording and songwriting at the highest level. Flanigan then spent a year honing a country sound to compliment his unique voice, captured on an 11-song album entitled Strong - released on September 2, 2022, on Reviver Records.
