The finale for the seventh season of The Voice was spectacular!!!
Country fans can rejoice as Craig Wayne Boyd (#teamBlake) brought home the gold and delivered another spectacular performance with southern legends Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band teamed up with Boyd and did not dissapoint in a soulful rendition of the timeless classic "Sweet Home Alabama".
Boyd has been a fan favorite as he and future hall-of-fame country artist Blake Shelton developed a unique and special bond during the course of the show.
Blake Shelton even went so far as to provide Boyd with a special song "My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face" that Blake had been "keeping in his pocket" for an artist that would be worthy enough to sing it. Blake allegedly had been holding onto this song for the past year unsure of if he should sing it himself or wait until he found an artist he felt could deliver on it as Boyd did.
Congratulations to Craig Wayne Boyd as he is poised to become the next superstar in country music. Blake Shelton can be very proud of his prodigy and the grit, determination and poise he displayed during the course of the season.
With that said, enjoy your moment in the spotlight Boyd and keep on signin' that soulful tune with a smile on your face...
"Sweet home Alabama, Where the skies are so blue"... :)
