Luke Wade made a heck of a go of it on The Voice last fall. He proved a more than likeable addition to the NBC reality show with his "small town" charm (who's ever heard of Fort Worth, right?) and made it pretty deep into the competition. In fact, he came close to making the finals, but on a show like The Voice it's not all about who wins and who loses; Wade is just the sort of guy who'll make a ton of new fans just be being his talented, unassuming self on national television.

That doesn't mean he's too good for his hometown, though -- a fact he proves this week by popping up in our latest installment of the Globe Trek Productions busking series.

Granted, Wade isn't actually from Fort Worth; his official hometown on the TV was Dublin, Texas. But he's a true-blue Fort Worth boy when it comes to his music career, which makes it a little extra fun to see him walking around Dallas in the video. It's something he reflects on here as well: "People feel there's a rivalry between the two cities," Wade says. "I think that we both have an important piece of the same puzzle."

Like we said, what a nice guy, right?

Wade plays two of his songs in the video, "Faith Pt. II" from his debut Tomorrow's Ghosts and "Till the Fighting is Through," from last year's The River. He starts off underground walking on the DART rail platform before making his way up the escalator and posting up at Trinity Hall Irish Pub. We're a little bummed Pharrell didn't pop up, but oh well.

But enough with the talk. Let's get on with the video, shall we?
