Craig Campbell IS country music.


If I've said it once, I've said it a million times, this guy makes country music the right way. Don't get me wrong, I love new country. There's just something about the way his music hits you. I can put his stuff on in the truck and sing along with the windows down or I can have it on softly in the background while I'm reeling one in. I hope he gets more airtime and this album gets the recognition it deserves. Keep doing what you do Craig! You have a fan here, for life!

Ya it's good, but....

But that's just my opinion,

Ok let me start off by saying I do like this album and Mr. Campbell. The songs are true to country relating to life and experience, also he sounds great. However, for others to say things like traditional? Or this is different than new country, or best recent album of this genre? And of course this is all my opinion. But traditional is not the country from the 90s it was great music but not traditional; that would be Waylon,Haggard,Jones, even Alan Jackson, not this. And new, we are in 2013 so to say this style/sound is any older than Mr. Bentley or Mr. Turner, or the era McGraw, Tritt we have a difference in opinions. And best for this genre, WOW. Have you heard the soul of Mr. Jamey Johnson or Brantley Gilbert, Eric Church, Ms. Kasey Musgraves? These artists are more of what is old/traditional some top notch country. That being said I did purchase this album because it is very good music its just country music of the 21st century. I do apologize if my opinion offends anyone reading these reviews but that's country.

About Craig Campbell

Working toward the traditional side of contemporary country, singer, songwriter, pianist, and Georgia native Craig Campbell is blessed with a deep, expressive voice, an awareness of the genre's history, and a no-gimmicks approach to performance that brings out the sincerity in his songs. Born in Lyons, Georgia, Campbell played piano at his mother's Baptist church from the age of ten until he was 18 and his home was filled with the sound of gospel music, but he also fell under the spell of country music, particularly Travis Tritt, whose gospel-fueled delivery suited Campbell's own vocal style. While still a teenager he formed a band, Out of the Blue, and began playing the bar circuit, learning how put together a performance and capture an audience.

In 2002, he relocated to Nashville, quickly immersing himself in the music scene there. He landed a steady gig at The Stage, one of the biggest clubs in historic Lower Broadway and doing demo sessions for other singers. Fellow Georgian Luke Bryan suggested Campbell try his hand at writing his own songs, and in time he mastered the craft, honing his original material at gigs. He met another singer, Mindy Ellis, fell in love, and the pair married; he also began playing piano in her band, which in turn led to a touring stint with Tracy Byrd. Keith Stegall caught one of Campbell's performances at The Stage in 2008 and the young singer was soon signed to Bigger Picture, which released a debut single, "Family Man," in 2010, following it with a full-length album, the self-titled Craig Campbell, in 2011. "Family Man" peaked at number 14 on the Country Singles chart, and two more singles taken from the album, "Fish" and "When I Get There," made the Country Top 40.

Campbell kept up a hectic touring schedule, and in May 2013 Bigger Picture released his second album, Never Regret. Two singles from the album charted on the Country Singles chart, "Outta My Head" (which peaked at number 25) and "Keep Them Kisses Comin'" (which rose to number 15). In May 2014, however, Campbell got the bad news that Bigger Picture was going out of business, though the singer lobbied country radio stations to keep spinning his music despite the lack of label support. Since Campbell was known as Bigger Picture's best-selling artist with a solid chart history, other labels soon came calling, and in December 2014 he announced he'd signed a new deal with Red Bow Records. May 2015 saw Campbell release his debut for his new label, the single "Tomorrow Tonight." A second single, "Outskirts of Heaven," arrived a year later and peaked in the Top 40 of the Hot Country Songs chart. ~ Steve Leggett
