Hear Craig Wayne Boyd’s Version of ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’

Craig Wayne Boyd, winner of Season 7 of The Voice, is celebrating Christmas this year with a brand-new holiday single, a cover of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”

Press play on the video below to hear the talented singer lend his vocals to the beloved Christmas classic, which was first recorded by Bing Crosby in 1943 and is sung from the point of view of a soldier stationed overseas. The tune was written to honor servicemembers who wanted to be home for Christmas.

Boyd’s version of the melancholy song that turned into a Christmas standard is simple: It’s traditional to the max — and that’s why fans will love it. The song will fit perfectly into a holiday steeped in traditions, from candlelit Christmas Eve services and presents under the tree to mistletoe and Santa Claus. However, Boyd adds a country twist by ending the song with a quiet “Merry Christmas, y’all.”

The singer, who was a member of Team Blake, won The Voice one year ago, giving Shelton his fourth win on the show. In June, Boyd got engaged to his now-fiancee, Taylor Borland, and in October, they revealed more exciting news: They are expecting a baby girl.

Music-wise, Boyd headed into the studio at the end of March to work on his first post-The Voice album. Before that, he was performing in Las Vegas, as the opening act of Rascal Flatts‘ Vegas Riot! residency.
