Dustin is a prolific songwriter, BMI member and publisher, he has a large catalog that keeps getting bigger. His songwriting is something we don't hear to often in music anymore, every word truly comes from the heart and you can feel the emotion in every lyric. He has wrote with several talented songwriters, one being PJ Smith which wrote a few hits for Def Lepard and country artist Mark Wills. With Dustin's vocals and the songwriting to match, he brings the whole package to the table.
"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
