Country singer Craig Boyd won the TV talent competition The Voice in December 2014. He got great advice from his mentor Blake Shelton but it was the blessing from southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd that pushed Boyd to victory. They performed together during the finals.
Now Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Rickey Medlocke is campaigning for country singer Benton Blount, who’s competing in the semifinals on America’s Got Talent. Medlocke made a video encouraging AGT fans to vote for Blount. The semi-final round starts September 1 (8pm, NBC). Eleven acts will perform live. The five acts who will advance will be announced on September 2, 8pm, NBC.
Share this message from the greatest band of all time about my performance tonight on America’s Got Talent!!!! #AGT
