Ian Flanigan Featured In Taylor Guitar’s ‘Vinyl Confessions’ With “Hotel California” Performance

Flanigan’s Debut Album STRONG Available Now

“This is the Voice and the music that America voted for! I’m a huge fan of Ian’s and the title of the album says it all…STRONG!” – Blake Shelton

“Ian is a great talent and STRONG is a great album. Look out for this guy because his future is looking bright!!!!” – Joe Bonsall/ The Oak Ridge Boys

“Ian Flanigan distinguishes himself from the crowded field of new male artists with a smooth, rich voice and smoky tone that infuses each song with warmth and relatability. From the sensual “Help Me Drink this Wine” to the wistful anthem “Grow Up,” which features Blake Shelton, Flanigan consistently serves up nuanced performances of well-crafted songs. STRONG is a solid effort by an impressive young vocalist with a bright future.” – Deborah Evans Price/Billboard

“Ian Flanigan has a great story about spending time on the road as a professional nomad. But it was time well spent, as he learned how to entertain on stage and write heartfelt songs off stage. A third-place finish on ‘The Voice’ doesn’t do him justice. His smoldering voice, honest songwriting, and unique guitar skills produce a sound that fits today’s country music charts.” – Gene McKay/CountryInsider.com

“There are lots of great songwriters represented like Jon Randall, Jessi Alexander, Mark Irwin, Jessi Jo Dillon, Jonathan Singleton, Wade Kirby, Pete Sallis, Shelby Lee Lowe, among others. But the songs that really hit me about this album were solo writes by Ian, himself. The warmth of Home Sweet Home. The redemption in Devil in My Hands. The inspiration in Shine Again. Those cuts all fortify that Ian Flanigan is more than just a pretty voice.” – Devon O’Day, Main Street Today

Ian Flanigan allows his blues-soaked, husky voice to shine in his new stirring ballad “Strong” – Markos Papadatos, Digital Journal

“With Ian Flanigan’s distinctive voice, his new album ‘Strong’ will give country music fans 11 songs to call their ‘favorite’ with these soulful, inspiring and get through life ballads.” – Judy Shields, The Hollywood Times

“Ian Flanigan’s new full-length album “Strong” shows off the smoothest baritone voice in country music today. With powerful tracks like “Under the Southern Sky,” “Strong,” and “Devil in My Hands” you get Chris Stapleton, Waylon Jennings, and a bit of Kris Kristofferson all rolled into one person. Ian goes from balladeer to rebel and back on one of the best album releases of 2022. Ian Flanigan is a surefire superstar! He has lit country radio on fire with ‘Strong’!” – Ward W. Bond, PhD – TV host of The Dr. Ward Bond Show
