American Country Award Nominee Craig Campbell is getting ready for Christmas and taking a moment to give back as he releases the holiday classic, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”. Produced by Keith Stegall, the song is heartfelt and timely as our nation’s troops continue to make their way home. Starting today, fans can download the song HERE and support a worthy cause, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project™.
“’I’ll Be Home For Christmas’ is one of my all time favorite Christmas songs and being on the road a lot makes this song mean that much more to me”. Campbell continues, “I am so proud to support the Wounded Warrior Project™ so that a portion of the proceeds benefit those soldiers making their way stateside and will be home this Christmas. They are the true heroes of our time”.
In addition, Campbell recently filmed a music video for “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”. The clip features footage of our American soldiers returning home in addition to video of Craig celebrating the holiday with wife Mindy and two young daughters, Preslee and Kinni Rose. The video can be seen on TV and online, including HERE, now and in the coming weeks.
