Craig Campbell hit the country music scene with his distinctive baritone and self-titled “Craig Campbell” CD. The hit songs “Family Man” and “Fish” brought Campbell into the country music spotlight, and his second CD “Never Regret,” which hit stores on May 7, turned up the wattage on that spotlight. Craig Campbell has been on a red-hot tour ever since.
Taking the time for an exclusive interview during his band’s sound check before headlining a concert in Wattsburg, Penn. on Aug. 29, Craig Campbell said, “I’m just a guy who gets to do what he loves for a livin’.” His current single “Outta My Head” is climbing the charts and is knocking on the door of the Country Top 20.
Singing “When I Get It,” Campbell whipped an already excited and cheering crowd into a frenzy. Craig Campbell may be a humble husband and father off-stage, but on-stage the voice and presence of this “workin’ man who parties for a livin'” immediately commands attention making Campbell a force of nature. Ever mindful of his loyal followers, Campbell invited fans sitting in the grandstand seats to “come on down and join in the party.”
Craig kicked the “Craig Party” into high gear with “Truck-N-Roll,” “Outta My Head,” “My Little Cowboy,” and the risque song “Topless,” which Campbell co-wrote with his singer/songwriter wife Mindy Ellis. Also included in the set of songs for the night was “When She Grows Up,” “Keep Them Kisses Comin’,”Family Man” and Campbell closed out the show with his tongue-in-cheek hit, “Fish.”
Craig Campbell continues to tour throughout September with stops in Kearney, Mo., Orlando, Fla., Knoxville, Tenn., Morganton, N.C., and Fayetteville, Tenn. Campbell will once again take the Grand Ole Opry stage on Sept. 10. Further tour and ticket information can be found on Craig Campbell’s website. Fans can also find Craig Campbell merchandise, including both CD’s “Craig Campbell” and “Never Regret” on the website.
