Craig Campbell returns from successful European debut
Craig Campbell just returned from a successful European debut, as his addictive new single “Outta My Head” continues to impact country radio. The neo-traditionalist singer was overwhelmingly received by more than 5,000 fans over the two day Gstaad Festival in Switzerland and earned a standing ovation from the crowd when he performed new music from his upcoming sophomore album. While Campbell has previously toured in Australia, this trip marked Craig’s first-ever performance in Europe, where he joined Martina McBride for the popular festival in the Swiss Alps. Check out a recap of his trip on this week’s Craig Cam HERE.
“Outta My Head” is a high-octane up-tempo track with an evocative lyric that describes the struggle of lost love. Produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and Matt Rovey and written by Brandon Kinney, Michael Carter, and Cole Swindell, the mesmerizing track showcases Campbell’s rich, warm baritone and expansive range.
ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL: After moving from his hometown of Lyons, Georgia to Nashville in 2002 to pursue his country music dreams, American Country Awards nominee Craig Campbell quickly picked up work as a keyboardist in Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd’s bands and was later discovered playing a regular gig at legendary Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. The singer-songwriter has earned well-deserved praise from the country’s toughest critics for his self-titled debut album, which released in April of 2011. Campbell’s autobiographical lead single, “Family Man” was a top 15 hit followed by “Fish” which has sold a quarter of a million downloads. His current smash “Outta My Head” is the lead single from his sophomore album, set to release early next year.
