Tap Into Indie: Craig Wayne Boyd

by Missy Wolf / 56 days ago / Comments

As our Tap Into Indie Series continues, Heart Songs Corporation and Centerstage Magazine are proud to bring you Season 7 winner of The Voice, Craig Wayne Boyd. With his already packed CMA Fest schedule, Boyd found a way to be a part of our Independent Artist Showcase in order to delight fans and help our charity of the day.

To say that the crowd at Alley Taps was excited is a bit of an understatement. These extremely loyal and dedicated group of fans were on their feet cheering and screaming for more. Affectionately called the CWBY'alllers, these fans are some of the most amazing fans we have seen. With each and every post we have ever seen about Boyd, these fans are sharing and retweeting almost immediately, making sure their favorite artist is well represented.

While backstage after his performance, I had to talk to Boyd about his loving fans. His appreciation for them did not go unnoticed. I think we were both equally as excited to talk about them and how important they are to him and his blossoming career. We also spoke about Whataburger vs In N Out, watching the CMT awards, Earth Wind and Fire, Keith Urban's message to fans, and how great "horn sections" are. Yes, I told him about my days as a baritone player or as my high school band teacher, Mr. Kanstul called me a "Barely-a-tone" player. We both laughed as Boyd seemed delighted that I too was a band geek. These are the real moments I look forward to during each conversation I have with an artist.

Knowing that Boyd has been working on new music and will be releasing an album in the fall, officially hitting the radio airwaves in September, it was nice to be amongst the first crowd that got to hear some brand new material. As a fan, these experiences are priceless. For those of you who did not get to be at our Independent Artist Showcase or see our live stream, you can still find the footage on our Facebook page.

Boyd is a genuine artist that is following his dream and staying true to who he is. Please continue to support him by sharing his music and news with all of your family and friends. Follow him on social media and be sure to watch our full conversation now. ~Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
