Yes, Craig Wayne Boyd won Season 7 of ‘The Voice,’ but it was before his name was called that he got the opportunity of a lifetime. The country rocker took the stage with Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd during Tuesday’s finale.

Host Carson Daly said it best when he introduced the song, noting how well the two artists’ sounds would match — and he was right. They performed a collaboration of the band’s most notable hit, ‘Sweet Home Alabama,’ and the moment the lights came on, Boyd’s excitement was evident.

Really, it seemed to be the most fun the singer has ever had! He even played air guitar during the set, and from his red chair, coach Blake Shelton was also armed with an air instrument.

The crowd loved it, too, and evidently so did America, as Boyd was ultimately named ‘The Voice’ winner for Season 7, marking Shelton’s fourth win.
