We all fell in love with Craig Wayne Boyd's country-rocker attitude on NBC's The Voice. He came out on top as the winner of season 7, and ever since he has been climbing the country music ladder to make his mark in 'Music City'.

In the midst of touring, Boyd found himself performing at the iconic Grand Ole Opry. A dream come true for any country artist, and seen as one of the greatest opportunities in the business. When he took the Opry stage to sing Waylon Jennings' number one hit "Amanda", Boyd knew he was paying homage to the Opry and outlaw country history. 

Jennings recorded "Amanda" in 1974 on his album titled, The Ramblin' Man. The song wasn't initially released as a single, but would become his eighth #1 hit on the country charts. "Amanda" stayed at the top spot for three weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. 

Boyd sings the song with the type of conviction Jennings would have appreciated. The beautiful song is one of country music's biggest hits, and Boyd does it justice! 

Watch Boyd's live Opry performance of "Amanada" below. 

LYRICS BELOW

I've held it all inward, God knows, I've tried,
But it's an awful awakening in a country boy's life,
To look in the mirror in total surprise.
At the hair on my shoulders and the age in my eyes.

Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.

It's a measure of people who don't understand,
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band.
I got my first guitar when I was fourteen,
Well I finally made forty, still wearing jeans.

Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
