‘The Voice’ 2014 Finale: Craig Wayne Boyd Performs With Lynyrd Skynyrd

Craig Wayne Boyd gets the honor of performing with Lynyrd Skynyrd on the 2014 finale of The Voice tonight. This is the band’s last performance in its itinerary for the year. They begin touring again in 2015 for a March 2015 Canadian tour, starting March 13, 2015 in Estevan, Saskatoon. Craig Wayne Boyd has been a favorite of coach Blake Shelton who has actually known Boyd as a veteran in the industry. Boyd is a talented performer and music artist who just never caught a break. Now he’s got a new single, written by Blake Shelton, and he has a bright future ahead of him. The single is called “My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face” and Boyd was so honored that Shelton gave it to him. Taste of Country reported:

Shelton told the hopeful he’d been “carrying it around” in his back pocket for several years, not knowing what to do with it. He found the song’s purpose — and its rightful owner — in Boyd. The country star couldn’t rave about the song enough, calling it “fun” and sexy.” Shelton admitted he didn’t record the song himself because of how difficult it actually is to sing. Boyd didn’t care — he said it was a “huge honor” that his coach let him have it — it shows off their growing bond.

Boyd is definitely a strong contender for the win this year.
