The Voice‘ season 7 winner Craig Wayne Boyd is getting ready for a very happy new year. The newly-crowned champion will make his debut on the Grand Ole Opry in January.

Blake Shelton brought home the win for Team Blake again this year, coaching Boyd to a victory with his mix of country and southern rock. Boyd — who is signed to Dot Records —  has just released his first single, ‘My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face,’ and he is scheduled for his first-ever Opry performance on Jan. 3.

That appearance is part of the ongoing Opry at the Ryman series, for which the venerable country program returns to its original home at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Other artists set for January’s series include Del McCoury, Vince Gill, Craig Morgan, Ronnie Milsap, and Marty Stuart. Special guests Kristian Bush, Deana Carter, Pure Prairie League, the Swon Brothers and Chris Young are also set for January at the Opry, as well as newcomer Mickey Guyton, who will make her own debut on Jan. 10.
