About Craig Wayne Boyd

Born and and raised in Texas, country singer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd came to the public's attention when he was a contestant, and the eventual winner, on the seventh season of the television show The Voice in 2014. Boyd showed an affinity for music even as a child. Growing up in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Mesquite, he was drawn to gospel and country, and was active in his church choir, eventually becoming its director. In the early 2000s, he moved to Nashville to try for his dream of a career in the music business, and soon had a publishing deal with EMI. Things looked promising. Yet, after ten years of songwriting, local gigs, national support touring, and trying everything he could to further that dream in Nashville, Boyd was on the verge of quitting music because of financial and other pressures. All that changed when he auditioned for the seventh season of The Voice. Ending up on Blake Shelton's team, Boyd's singing voice, playing, and easy musical versatility made him a fan favorite, and eventually made him the overall winner. Boyd started working on an album, releasing a single called "I'm Still Here," but the project didn't materialize. A few years later, he joined with producer Will Edwards to record Top Shelf, an album released by Copperline Music Group in October 2017. ~ Steve Leggett
