It took a lot of Facebook messages and e-mails, but Dallas, Texas native Craig Wayne Boyd and I finally landed on a day when he could visit the WBKR studio and play some live music for us.

Ah, how the times have changed; it used to be PHONE tag.

Anyway, Craig's a terrific new artist with friends in high places (Lee Brice and Jamey Johnson, for example) and a debut CD--featuring the single "I Ain't No Quitter"--due to be released on September 18th.

Well, Craig did bring his guitar and, in case you missed it, here are live performances of "Blood, Sweat, and Beer" and "She Does."
