It's a fantastic time to be Chris Mann. The Kansas native, who was Christina Aguilera's finalist on the second season of The Voice, has now inked a record deal with an imprint of Universal Republic, according to a report from Billboard.

Universal Republic is the label affiliated with The Voice, that currently represents multiple artists from the show, including Dia Frampton, Vicci Martinez, and Jermaine Paul. Chris's deal is with Faircraft, an imprint of Universal.

He is currently at work on an album, with the single "Roads" in the works, as he announced after Voice's May finale.

In addition, People recently reported Chris's engagement to girlfriend Laura Perloe.
