Dynamic and charismatic, Craig Wayne Boyd’s sound is rooted in the southern tradition of country music and is topped with a rebellious flair. Growing up in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Mesquite, Boyd was born under the influence of gospel and country music.
He first developed as a multi-instrumentalist at a very young age, and was later his church choir director and a touring musician with various national acts. Like the Texas sun, music burned hot in his soul, and was the one constant in his life, even when life brought unexpected and unwelcome changes for him.
After a trip to Nashville brought life-changing events his way, Boyd headed to Music City and signed a publishing deal with EMI shortly thereafter. After several years of prolific songwriting, Boyd turned to the road and toured constantly, logging more than 1,000 shows in four years, and opening for acts like Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser and Brantley Gilbert.
