Craig Wayne Boyd, the season seven winner of NBC’s Emmy Award winning The Voice, will help the Opry bring in the new year with his debut Opry performance on Sat., Jan. 3. Boyd was coached by Opry member Blake Shelton on the show and was crowned champion earlier this week.
Boyd, who was assigned to the Dot Records label as part of his prize for winning The Voice, has released the single "My Baby's Got A Smile On Her Face" and will undoubtedly sing that when he makes his Opry Debut. He's likely to sing one of his other songs from his time on The Voice as well.
Additional performers during the month of January as the Opry continues its Ryman Auditorium run include Opry members Del McCoury, Vince Gill, Craig Morgan, Ronnie Milsap, and Marty Stuart along with special guests Kristian Bush, Deana Carter, Pure Prairie League, The Swon Brothers, Chris Young, and Mickey Guyton making her Opry debut on Jan.10.
