  • Cody Belew, right, and Dez Duron were eliminated from "The Voice" Tuesday night.

We learned last night that Beebe native Cody Belew did not get enough votes to make it to the top 6 on "The Voice." Belew and fellow contestant Dez Duron, of Shreveport, were eliminated.

The two spoke to Today's Natalie Morales this morning about their post-"Voice" plans.

Morales mentioned Belew's stint in Nashville and the challenges he'd faced trying to make it as a musician there, asking him if he "gave up on that because of the pressure."

"I never gave up on it," he corrected her. "It wasn't working as well for me as it has on "The Voice." With all of this happening now, I hope that I can go back with a different perspective and maybe some doors will open that were closed previously."

After learning the results, Belew tweeted: "My sweet friends- this is not my end, only my beginning. Thank you all more than I can express for riding alongside me. Now we work! :-)"

I think it's weirdly coincidental that the contestants from Arkansas and Louisiana would be cut from the show on the same night, in the midst of all the outlandishly silly "Les-Miles-to-Arkansas" talk.

Watch a clip of the Today interview after the jump.
