Concerts on the Jack Daniel's Stage with music sponsored by H & R Agri-Power
Craig Wayne Boyd @ 9pm
Texas-born and raised country singer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd, who came to the public's attention when he was a contestant, and the eventual winner, on the seventh season of the television show The Voice in 2014, showed an affinity for music even as a child.
Growing up in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Mesquite, he was drawn to gospel and country, and was active in his church choir, eventually becoming its director. He moved to Nashville to try for his dream of a career in the music business in the early 2000s, and soon had a publishing deal with EMI. Things looked promising.
Yet Boyd, after ten years of songwriting, local gigs, national support touring, and trying everything he could to further that dream in Nashville, was on the verge of quitting music because of financial and other pressures. All that changed when he auditioned for the seventh season of The Voice. Ending up on Blake Shelton's team, Boyd's singing voice, playing, and easy musical versatility made him a fan favorite, and eventually made him the overall winner.

Natalie Stovall and The Drive @ 8pm
Natalie has been playing professionally since she was ten, and performed everywhere from the White House to the Oprah Winfrey Show. “I started violin lessons at the age of four after my granny saw an ad in the Columbia paper for a new violin teacher in town” says Natalie. “Looking back, I’m not even sure if I really knew what I was getting into. I think I just knew it involved me being on stage and that’s all I needed.”
The Drive’s seven–year journey has been forged like fine steel with the durable attributes of family values and hard work. Performing over 200 dates a year, they were named Entertainers of the Year in 2012 by Campus Activities Magazine and returned this Summer from the Middle East on one of their many Navy Entertainment Tours in support of our troops across the globe.
Led by multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Natalie Stovall, The Drive includes drummer James Bavendam from Seattle, Chile’s Miguel Cancino on guitar, Zach Morse from Cheyenne, Wyoming on bass and vocals and Redding, California guitarist and vocalist Joel Dormer. + learn more: nataliestovall.com
