As the winner of a recording contract, along with a staggering $100,000 cash prize, Carter has some big ideas for his future.
He's had some incredible guidance.
via: Getty"I want to keep growing my music career," he said, "Gwen told me that it's time for me to start writing some music, which is definitely what I plan on doing. I have some songs in the folder that I'm working on, and I really want to get in a studio and start to record them."
And it turns out that Gwen Stefani has been incredibly supportive of his journey with The Voice...
via: GettySo much so, that Carter has referred to the singer as his "second mom."
The "Hollaback Girl" singer took to Instagram to express her joy for Carter following his win.
Gwen, who has 3 sons herself, would reportedly call Carter her "little son" during their time working together.
But thankfully, his real mom was there to witness his win.
via: Getty"[I had] my mom there because I'm a minor," Carter explained. "After the show was over, she ran on stage to give me the biggest hug. I called my dad, my brother and the rest of my family and they were all just crying and so happy and completely shocked. Not shocked, like they didn't think I could do it, but like they couldn't even believe it was happening."
