Craig Wayne Boyd is a country music singer, originally from Texas, and he is the newly crowned winner or, in social media land, #CraigIsTheVoice. He’s gone from the obscurity that too many talented artists face daily to now international fame and a record deal to boot. And, along with his fellow finalists, he also won a new vehicle from Nissan, which is one of the program’s sponsors.

As is always the case, it’s two hours of celebratory musical performances and behind-the-scenes video profiles, and finally in the last few minutes, the winner is announced. But an exciting evening it was with the likes of Hozier’s Take Me to Church and Ed Sheeran’s Thinking out Loud just to name two of the artists who performed. There were also the musical pairings, and for that, our winner had a chance to perform the iconic song ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ with none other than Lynyrd Skynyrd.

But yes, we did get the final rankings, too. The remaining three finalists are all Team Adam Levine. They are as follows: Damien Lawson (Team Adam), third place Chris Jamison (Team Adam) and runner up, Matt McAndrews.

For his coach, country music superstar Blake Shelton, it represents a victory as well, as he continues his reign as the coach on the show who have had the most winners. His previous team winners are Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, and Danielle Bradbery.

As for the details of the Craig Wayne Boyd biography — which has racked up some exciting new chapters in the past several weeks — he is a Texas native, born in Mesquite (a Dallas suburb) and now based in Nashville. As have so many, he had many years in the business, never quite getting that breakthrough until now, despite having previously signed with EMI and touring extensively as a supporting artist for the likes of Brantley Gilbert and Randy Houser among others. He is also the father of a two-year-old son.

And, now, as the world knows, Craig Wayne Boyd is The Voice winner in season 7! See the video highlights and more photos below!
