Craig Wayne Boyd, winner of NBC’s “The Voice” this past December, will open for the Rascal Flatts Vegas Riot! residency at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

The nine-show run will be Boyd’s first performances since his season seven win for “Team Blake” and will take place between Wednesday, February 25 and Saturday, March 14.

Boyd is a country singer and multi-instrumentalist who grew up with an affinity for music in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite, Texas. He moved to Nashville in the early 2000s to pursue a music career, but after 10 years of songwriting, local gigs, national support touring and more, things were not looking promising as he began to struggle with financial and other pressures. It wasn’t until he auditioned for “The Voice” where he caught the public’s attention as he landed a spot on legendary country artist Blake Shelton’s team. Boyd’s singing, playing and musical versatility made him a fan favorite and eventually the overall winner on the Tuesday, December 16, 2014 finale.

In the month-long whirlwind since taking the victory, Boyd was signed to Dot Records and released his first single, “My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face.” The song, gifted to him by Shelton, was first introduced to the world when he performed it on “The Voice” finale.

“I am so honored and excited to join Rascal Flatts in what will be an epic group of shows at Hard Rock Hotel,” said Boyd. “It is yet another check mark on my bucket list of things that I previously only dreamed of!”
