About Craig Campbell:
Country hitmaker Craig Campbell has long been admired for his patience and persistence in an industry that all too often relies on overnight success. With two rolls of quarters and a roll of dimes given to him by his mother for gas money, the Lyons, Georgia native was determined to make it in Nashville. His undeniable talent and charm landed him steady gigs at the legendary honky-tonk, The Stage, and eventually took him on the road with Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd as a keyboard player. With smooth chops and hot blooded stage presence, it wasn’t long before Campbell broke out into stardom of his own with hits like 2011’s “Family Man” and “Outta My Head” soaring into the Top 15 on the Billboard Country Charts. Showing off his down home flair in singles like “Fish” and his Top 10 smash “Keep Them Kisses Comin”, Campbell became a boot stompin’, crowd pleasing favorite. His critically acclaimed 2016 ballad, “Outskirts of Heaven” was performed on NBC’s TODAY show and praised by Rolling Stone for its uplifting message. A regular on the Grand Ole Opry, Campbell also wowed audiences around the country on Luke Bryan’s highly successful 2017Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day Tour. In 2018, he released See You Try, a seven-song EP on Broken Bow Records before amicably parting ways. Almost two years later, he is finally releasing new music on his own accord with his romantic ballad, “It’s About Time” and his current let loose anthem, “All My Friends Drink Beer.”
