"I always thought Mike Eli (Eli Young Band) had one of the most recognizable voices in country music, but he may have to take a step to the side here and let Dustin Craig share that spotlight with him. You only have to hear Dustin sing once to know you are going to remember that voice when you hear it again." -Country Chatter
