The Voice Season 7 winner Craig Wayne Boyd Friday delivers a full-length album, titled “Top Shelf,” after his win on the show in 2014. After winning, he was given a record deal but negotiated his way out of that contract to pursue a different deal with another label. He’s now signed to Copperline Music Group.

His album combines grit and sophistication, Boyd says.

“I feel like the album itself — it’s got a little bit of the grit, the whiskey, to it, [but] with my wife now being such an important part of my life, she brought a little but of sophistication to me. So it’s a little bit like whiskey and wine, but rather than calling it ‘Whiskey and Wine,’ I felt like, ‘You know what, it’s not the cheap stuff; it’s the top shelf,” Boyd said in an interview with The Boot.

The album is available for preorder from Amazon and iTunes.
