Craig Wayne Boyd is releasing his first full-length album,Â Top Shelf,Â as he gears up for appearances on Hallmarkâ€™s Home & Family, Access Hollywood, Fox NewsEdge, Fox 411 and MORE. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release ofÂ Top ShelfÂ since Boydâ€™s victory on NBCâ€™s “The Voice,” and now they can finally purchase itÂ HERE.
During his rise to fame after winning Season 7 of NBCâ€™s â€œThe Voice,â€ Boydâ€™s â€œMy Babyâ€™s Got A Smile on Her Faceâ€ debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, becoming the second song (following Garth Brooksâ€™ â€œMore Than A Memoryâ€) to achieve that level of chart success.
After his victory on â€œThe Voice,â€ Boyd did not rush into turning out an album quickly, but instead approached the making of his album by ensuring each song wasÂ Top ShelfÂ quality. Boyd and producer Will Edwards went through thousands of demos before compiling the 13 unique tracks onÂ Top Shelf.
Millions of Americans watched the Texas nativeâ€™s journey on “The Voice,â€ but for Boyd, that was only one chapter in a long journey that resulted in the release of an album that is a celebration of heartbreak, the sweet pain of love, and the comfort of faithâ€™s embrace.
“This album has been a labor of love,â€ said Boyd. â€œWe started the album shortly after coming off of “The Voice” but did not find a home for it until earlier this year. A lot of life has been lived at that point, so I wanted to go back in the studio and record a few more so that the album reflected where I am in life right now. I feel that this album is now reflective of my life and the happiness that I have found in it!”
Reviewers are already hailingÂ Top ShelfÂ as well worth the wait:
â€œWith catchy lyrics, foot-tapping songs, and humble topics, ‘Top Shelf’ is a high-caliber debut album that offers everything country music fans crave.â€Â – Kristin Brown,Â Cowboys and Indians
Craig’s evolution as an artist on ‘Top Shelf ‘is both impressive and explosive as he draws from multiple influences to create an album that is eclectic, fun, and full of surprises that will keep listeners wanting to guess what’s next!â€Â – Amanda Walsh,Â TBK Magazine
“Craig Wayne Boyd has released a charming new studio album with ‘Top Shelf.’ All of the songs on there are refreshing and distinct, and they all have their own identities. He manages to connect directly with the hearts of his listeners. Well done!”Â – Markos Papadatos,Â Digital Journal
