Very happy to get a press release today, telling us that Craig Campbell has been signed to Red Bow Records. That’s great news for all of Craig’s fans – and there are a lot of us out here! Below is the press release, along with a little info about Craig, and about BBR Music Group.
BBR Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of country music artist-songwriterCraig Campbell to its RED BOW RECORDS artist roster.
“The minute he became available, we started getting calls from our partners in radio saying BBR Music Group was the perfect place for Craig and we should consider signing him. After spending some time with Craig and his new music, I was excited about what we could do together.” said Benny Brown, President/Owner of the BBR Music Group.
Earlier this year, Campbell scored his first Top 10 hit at Country radio with the catchy, up-tempo “Keep Them Kisses Comin’.” The song maintained its momentum on the country charts even after his former label Bigger Picture Group closed its doors in May 2014.
“I am super excited at the opportunity I have with RED BOW and to work with this incredible team,” shares Campbell. “I’m more fired up than I have ever been and can’t wait to get my new music out to radio and the fans!”
Recently the talented songwriter checked another item off his bucket list with co-writing the song “All American Kid” featured on country music legend Garth Brooks’ new album, MAN AGAINST THE MACHINE. To date, Campbell has achieved four consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads, including his Top 15 autobiographical debut single, “Family Man.” The Georgia native racked up additional hits with fan-favorites “Fish” and “When I Get It” from his 2011 self-titled debut album, as well as Top 30 hit “Outta My Head,” featured on his 2013 sophomore project, NEVER REGRET.
Currently, Campbell is in the studio working on new music and will be releasing a new single on RED BOW RECORDS in 2015.

ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL: Craig Campbell broke through the Country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album (2011), which delivered the hits “Family Man,” “Fish,” and “When I Get It.” Acclaimed as one of the genre’s most neo-traditionalist singers, Campbell’s Top 15 debut single “Family Man” was featured on HBO’s True Blood and the top-selling fan-favorite “Fish” has sold nearly 400,000 digital downloads. Most recently, Campbell earned his first Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013) produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and Matt Rovey (CCMA Album Of The Year Producer). The gifted songwriter co-penned six of the tracks on the twelve-song project. A native of Lyons, Georgia, Campbell moved to Nashville in 2002. Prior to landing his first record deal, Campbell spent time on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan’s bands – gigs that inspired him nightly – and was soon discovered playing a regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage.
