Marion native Barrett Baber will perform two shows in Little Rock's River Market in January after finishing in third place on NBC's The Voice earlier this month.

The shows will be at 8 p.m. Jan. 14 and 9 p.m. Jan. 15, both at the Revolution Music Room on President Clinton Avenue, according to Baber's website.

His show Jan. 15, The Acoustic Encore, will include fellow Voice contestant Dustin Christensen and feature "behind the scenes stories, solo acoustic performances of songs from [The Voice] and the debut of new unreleased original songs," Baber's website states.

Tickets are not available for purchase online for the Jan. 15 show.

Christensen is also set to be the opening act for Baber's Jan. 14 show. Tickets are $15 for that show, which will feature Baber's full band.

Baber was among four finalists on The Voice who competed for a recording contact and $100,000. After the votes were tallied, Jordan Smith was named the season 9 winner Dec. 15.

In October, Baber told ArkansasOnline that he and Christensen, an Orem, Utah, native, had become best friends over the course of the singing competition.

"Heading into finals, that's when we really became closer," Baber said at the time. "Right away, we both just put to bed any ideas that this is a battle or that we are working against one another."
