Craig Wayne Boyd – 2014 Winner of “The Voice” Returns to Branson, MO!
Texas-born and raised country singer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd, who 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, 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 it’s director. He moved to Nashville to try for his dream of a career in the music business in the early 2000’s, and soon had publishing deal with EMI. Things looked promising. Yet Boyd, after ten years of songwriting, local gigs, national support touring, and trying everything he could to further that dream in Nashville, 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.
His latest single, “My Baby Has A Smile On Her Face” has already sold over 100,000 tracks and he is only the second artist in history of the Billboards Hot Country Songs Chart to debut at #1.
Craig Wayne Boyd had a great time playing Branson and loved the crowd’s energy. We approached him about coming back to Branson this year for a Christmas show and are excited to announce a December 5th concert” – Larry Wilhite, General Manager.
