Craig Campbell Releases Debut Album Today!
Craig Campbell's self-titled debut album is released today, April 5.
The country music singer has had a jam-packed album release week, starting off on April 2nd by participating in the inaugural NRA Country ACM Celebrity Shoot followed by a stroll on the red carpet and attending the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night.
In addition to Craig's Sirius XM Special "Highway Hang Time with Craig Campbell" that premieres today on Sirius Channel 60/XM 16, Craig can also be seen on the CMT Insider and is featured as GAC's Fan Focus Artist of the Month and on other GAC programming, including On The Streets.
A native Georgian, Craig moved to Nashville in 2002 to pursue his country music dreams. He quickly picked up work as a keyboardist in Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd's bands and - after years of singing demos - was advised by fellow Georgian Luke Bryan to start writing his own songs. Craig began performing those songs in a regular weekly gig at Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage, and was discovered there in 2008 by Bigger Picture Group executives.
Craig's debut single, "Family Man," has been climbing country radio charts and capturing the hearts of country music folks for the past several months. His touching lyrics combined with his strong, traditional country voice demonstrate that this real-life family man truly embodies what country music is all about.
The new project is produced by Keith Stegall and features 11 songs, including 9 that are co-written by Craig himself.
As if the success of his debut single and the release of his debut album isn't enough, Campbell is also getting ready to hit the road in May with Willie Nelson for the 2011 Country Throwdown Tour, also starring Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert and more!
