Craig Campbell performs “Outskirts of Heaven,” live at the Grand Ole Opry.
Before taking the solo route, Craig Campbell had a gig playing with Tracy Byrd’s band on the road. Gaining a stage presence, Campbell pursued a solo career. After signing with Bigger Picture Music Group, in 2010 the Georgia native released his debut single, “Family Man,” an impressive preview to his self-titled debut album.
“Family Man” reached No. 14 on Hot Country Songs, while his second single, “Fish,” released in 2011, reached No. 23, making Campbell one to watch and solidifying his place on the Nashville music scene.
Two years later, Campbell delivered his second studio album, Never Regret, which would produce his most successful song yet, “Keep Them Kisses Comin’.”
The track reached No. 9 on Country Airplay, made the Billboard Hot 100, and the Hot Country Songs chart.
Now, after signing with Red Bow Records, the singer is on the verge of releasing a new album that’s taking a slight turn from his previous sound. “The guitars are bigger, the sound rounder, the vision more complete. It’s Campbell like he’s never been heard before,” says his bio.
The two singles, “Tomorrow Tonight” and “Outskirts of Heaven,” are proof of Campbell’s dynamic style and his love of classic country music.
“All the songs we are writing are all very committed and current,” Campbell says in press materials. “But it’s still me, singing. That’s the main thing I want people to say, at the end of the day: that I’m a great singer, who truly loves country music.”
