Craig Almost Gave Up On Making Music Before ‘The Voice’
“I remember more than a year ago sitting in a pick‑up outside of a club after I had played to basically no one. And [I was] 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,’” he told us, while Blake stood by his side.
