Craig Wayne Boyd shared a brand new song about his musical journey for a crowd in Vegas.
Season 7’s winner of The Voice, Craig Wayne Boyd, has had quite a bit of success as the hit show’s reigning champion. His first single “My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face” went No. 1; he was the opening act on Rascal Flatts’ Vegas Riot! residency; and he debuted on the Grand Ole Opry in January.
At the last show opening for Rascal Flatts on March 14, Boyd had a special treat for the audience. He shared a song he wrote during his final week on The Voice. Before performing the song, Boyd said, “My last week being on that show, I wrote a song that really speaks about my whole journey up to that point. If it’s alright, this is brand new for me, and I’m going to share it with you guys tonight. It’s called ‘I’m Still Here.'”
The new song truly tells the story of Boyd’s career as a singer-songwriter. Boyd spent over a decade chasing his dream in Nashville. When he was close to calling it quits, he was invited to audition for The Voice and the rest is history.
“I’m a believer, there’s a song in me that’s begging to be heard. Yes, I’m a dreamer, hanging on to hope for everything it’s worth, so I skipped a few meals and I slept in my car, when you’re down that road, they don’t care who you are… Oh, look at me now, I’m still here, standing strong, giving it my all, cause that’s just who I am…” he sings.
Boyd is the third country artist to win The Voice, preceded by Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradberry. He has a packed tour schedule this spring and summer, and his debut record will be released through Dot Records later this year.
