The Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival is excited to announce that Texas-born and raised country singer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd will provide the Thursday night entertainment! The concert will take place Thursday, May 21st at Bell County High School. Boyd came to the public's attention in 2014 when he was a contestant, and the eventual winner, on the 7th season of the television show The Voice. Craig Wayne Boyd, 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 where he eventually became its director. He moved to Nashville to try for his dream of a career in the music business in the early 2000s. He soon had a publishing deal with EMI and 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.
