Craig Wayne Boyd Takes Us To Church With ‘Rugged Old Cross’ and Big Frog Makes It On ‘The Voice’ – Top 5 Recap [VIDEO]
Craig Wayne Boyd
Just when you think Craig Wayne Boyd couldn't top his performance of 'I Walk the Line,' he goes gospel, taking us all to church with 'Old Rugged Cross.' It had the judges on their feet and coach Blake Shelton predicting his bright future. 'I can't wait to see what happens with you when this journey ends. You may be one of the guys that comes out of this and become a superstar in country music.'
I have zero words to describe how great that @CWBYall performance was... Such an important artist. That's all.. Congrats my friend.

Before we went to church, Shelton chose Merle Haggard's 'Working Man Blues,' turning the Voice stage into a Honky-Tonk once again. It left Pharrell anticipating Boyd's music. 'I can't wait to see what your album sounds like.' His coach couldn't sing his praises enough. 'You're one of the best singers I've ever heard in my life.'
Travis Tritt was even impressed.
I thought @CWBYall did a great job tonight on Merle Haggard's "Working Man Blues!" Coincidentally, I'm going to be seeing Hag later tonight.
