Put on your cowboy hats & boots as Wine Country is coming back to Folktale on April 27th! Join them for the next installment of KTOM’s “Wine Country” Concert Series featuring Craig Campbell!
Craig Campbell is one of Country’s brightest rising stars who launched onto the Country music scene in 2011 and continues to exist in a perfect sweet spot between tradition and modernity. Craig grew up in a strong Southern Baptist home, fell in love early with the sounds of Country radio, and built a foundation not just as a singer and performer, but as a songwriter. It was a conversation with Luke Bryan, for whom he once played keyboard, that really helped him set his priorities clear. “Luke said, ‘man you need to be writing songs, and you need to be writing with different people, twice a day'”. “That’s where you can define yourself as an artist, with people writing songs that tell your story. And nobody is going to sing them better than you.'”
That dedication to the craft made him not only understand the importance of crafting songs like the fan-favorite “Tomorrow Tonight” with trusted collaborators, but also to keep writing, constantly. It’s an ethos that recently led to Garth Brooks himself cutting his track “All American Kid” for Man Against the Machine. “That was such a huge, huge honor,” said Campbell. “I didn’t believe it was happening, even when he was recording it.”
And now, the release of “Outskirts of Heaven,” serves as the blueprint for his road ahead, full of songs that tug at heartstrings, push boundaries and seep in with infectious melodies. “All the songs we are writing are all very committed and current,” he says. “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.”
