About the Artists
Born on the Island of Hawai’i, Waylon Nihipali always dreamed of becoming an artist. His parents – who named him after singer-songwriter Waylon Jennings – shared their passion for country music since Nihipali was a child, with his father being a country singer in Hawai’i. After producing his debut single and moving to Nashville, Nihipali has seen immense success from the recording studio to Las Vegas, where he stopped on his “Make It Country” tour and was featured on FOX 5 News and NBC Las Vegas.
Singer, songwriter and professional nomad Ian Flanigan is most at home in the wild outdoors. Hailing from the Catskill Mountains, Flanigan is best known for his unique whiskey-and-cigarettes voice and his sophisticated approach to the guitar. Flanigan had already been living a troubadour life, touring full time for a decade when the pandemic hit. Desperate times called for radical measures, and Flanigan’s final gig in February 2020 was an unintended audition at a Nashville honky-tonk in front of talent scouts for NBC’s “The Voice.” Following a third-place finish on the show, Flanigan bonded deeply with his then-mentor, now-collaborator Blake Shelton. Together, they sang and released the duet “Grow Up” and Shelton said that Flanigan had "the most unique voice maybe I've ever heard on The Voice."
