Ethan grew up in a small town in Tennessee and started singing in church. He learned to play guitar when he was 13 and now performs at local fairs and festivals. Outside of music, Ethan stays busy with school and works two jobs: as a farmer and as a dog groomer. He also makes time for his best friend Humphry, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer. When Humphry lost his hair to chemo, Ethan shaved his own head in support, and he enjoys playing music to cheer Humphry up. With Humphry's encouragement, Ethan comes to "The Voice" to chase his music dreams beyond his small town.
