Are you unfamiliar with Backroad Anthem’s lead singer, Craig Strickland? Here are five fast facts to know about the missing singer as the world awaits news on his whereabouts.
Craig Strickland, 29, was declared a missing person on Monday, Dec. 28, after his duck hunting boat was found capsized.
1.) Craig Is The Lead Singer Of Backroad Anthem
Backroad Anthem are an up-and-coming country band from Arkansas. Although their fan base is still growing, they hit the big time when they opened up for Lee Brice in November. So cool.
2.) He Is Married To A Former Miss Arkansas
Craig is one very lucky man because he is married to the gorgeous Helen Wisner. One read of his Twitter profile shows that he likes to joke he married “up,” and that’s because she’s a former Miss Arkansas USA.
3.) Craig Loves To Hunt All Sorts Of Animals
As you probably know by now, Craig went missing while on a duck hunting trip in Oklahoma with his friend, Chase Marland, 22. However, Craig and Chase’s capsized boat was definitely not caused by their lack of hunting skills. One scroll through Craig’s Twitter account, especially the photos, shows that hunting was his absolute favorite hobby.
4.) His Dog Sam Is His Best Friend
Craig loves no one more than he loves his big dog, Sam. Well, okay, to be fair he probably loves his wife more — if not an equal amount. Sam was on the hunting trip with Craig and Chase, but thankfully was found alive and returned to the Strickland family as they await news on their missing boy.
5.) He’s A Belieber
Alright to be fair, there is not a lot of context in this one… but it still had to mentioned. The first line in Craig’s Twitter bio reveals he’s a “recently converted” Belieber, which is the name Justin Bieber‘s fans are called. Maybe it was Justin’s new album, Purpose, that turned Craig?
