My Baby's Got A Smile on Her Face

My Baby's Got A Smile on Her Face 
is the coronation song and debut single for season 7 Voice USA winner Craig Wayne Boyd. It is the third original song released by a Voice winner behind "Stitch by Stitch" by season 1's Javier Colon and "Tumbling Down" by season 5's Tessanne Chin.

It is the first winner's single to also have a music video.

BackgroundEdit

The song, written by Mark Marchetti and Stephanie Urbina Jones, was originally written for Boyd's mentor Blake Shelton, but he was never able to record it due to the song's range, which didn't suit Shelton's voice. According to Shelton, who also produced the song, he held on to the song for years until the time was right to let someone else try it. He gave the song to Boyd to record for the Voice finale.
