Voice Winner Craig Wayne Boyd Was Discouraged Nearly Gave Up On Music

Craig Wayne Boyd, Voice winner reveals he almost quit music before the show. He was part of Country singer and Voice mentor Blake Shelton on season 7 and during his audition he sang “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’” by Travis Tritt and Marty Stuart. Well almost wasn’t the winner because there was a point when just felt discouragement and nearly passing up on his dream.

“I remember more than a year ago, a little more than a year ago, sitting in a pickup outside a club after I had played to basically no one, and talking with my drummer and saying, ‘Listen, I may have to quit. Because it’s not paying my bills, and we’re losing my house,’” the 35-year-old country crooner said in a press conference after the finale. “I lost my pickup. I didn’t know what I was going to do.”

Fortunately for Boyd, his drummer convinced him not to throw in the towel. “And then randomly the opportunity [came] up to go audition a few months out for The Voice,” he recalled. “And I was like, ‘You know what? I’m going to go do that.’”

The rest, as they say, is history. With help from coach Blake Shelton, Boyd beat out fellow finalists Chris Jamison, Matt McAndrew, and Damien Lawson — all members of Team Adam Levine.

“Will I rub it in Adam’s face? He may quit the show before I’m done rubbing this in his face,” Shelton joked of triumphing over his longtime competitor. “But what’s awesome is this guy holding this trophy. It’s unbelievable.”

Shelton is so proud, in fact, that he said he’d be Boyd’s opening act on tour. [Read more...]

Ben Stiller Feels Lucky That He Got To Know Robin Williams

Ben Stiller says he feels lucky that he knew the late star Robin Williams. The forty nine year old Zoolander star and the Hook star spent time together while Night At The Museum was in the making. Stiller and Williams star alongside each other in the newest installment in the trilogy, Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Williams was an idol to Stiller and he is feeling gratitude that he got to know Williams during the last few years.

Ben insists he was ”excited” every time he got to work with Williams – who tragically committed suicide in August at the age of 63 – on the franchise and never took it ”for granted.”

When asked how Williams’ passing affects his opinion of the new movie, Ben said:

”I don’t know how it affects how I look at the film, but for me, I never took it for granted to be able to work with Robin because I was always a huge fan of his. Growing up he was one of my comedic idols and this was the only chance I ever had to work with him. So every time we got to work together on these movies I was always excited … I feel really lucky to have had that opportunity and to have got to spend time with him and to be in the movies with him. It’s great that the movies exist but for me it’s the experience that I will take away.”

Speaking at a press conference in London on Monday, Ben told BANG Showbiz:

”He was very generous and kind and would make everybody feel like an equal. It was great to be around him and have him treat you that way that but in reality, for me, under the surface I was always really just a fan.”

Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb, is one of the last movies Williams made before his passing and features a tribute to him and late actor Mickey Rooney, who makes a brief appearance, in the end credits, accompanied by the words ”the magic never ends.”
