Craig Campbell dug deep into his catalog of songs recorded during two label deals and gems he cut for his own label, when he released The Lost Files: Exhibit A in February. Continuing the process, he unearthed another 17 songs which will be released as The Lost Files: Exhibit B on August 25, 2023 on his Grindstone Recordings label. The album can be added/saved HERE.

“As excited as I was to release Exhibit A, it is no comparison to how I’m feeling about Exhibit B,” said Craig. “The Lost Files has been a work in progress for the last 10 years and I’m so pumped for y’all to hear the rest of these songs!”

In keeping with the “lost” theme, the songs on Exhibit B comprise tracks he recorded during two previous label deals but were never released. Also included are songs he recorded since launching his own Grindstone Recordings in 2020 like “All My Friends Drink Beer” and his current single “What I Thank (When I Drank).” Fan favorite “It’s About Time” receives an updated modern mix on the new album.

Craig co-wrote 12 of the tracks with the likes of Blake Bollinger, Kenton Bryant, Rodney Clawson, Josh Dunn, Styles Haury, James Kelly, Wyatt McCubbin, James McNair, Lance Miller, Phil O’Donnell, Houston Phillips, Taylor Phillips, Dave Turnbull, Brad and Brett Warren. Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman, Andrew Dorff, Ben Hayslip, Brice Long, Jamie Paulin, Jonathan Singleton, Michael White, Justin Wilson contributed four cuts, and Craig’s wife Mindy Ellis Campbell wrote the beautiful “You” with AJ Kross and Mike Sprinkle.

In addition to Craig, producers on various tracks include Cooper Bascom, Blake Bollinger, Mickie Jack Cones, Phil O’Donnell, Matt Rovey, and Jeremy Stover. Cones was recently in the news for producing Craig’s gold-selling smash hit “Outskirts of Heaven.”

The first single released from the new collection is “Summer Soundtrack,” a perfect, sultry season-ender written by Craig with Phil O’Donnell and Wade Kirby and produced by Mickey Jack Cones.

Craig and his wife Mindy accomplished a longtime dream of opening Grindstone Cowboy in their home of Eagleville last year. The coffee shop, restaurant and music venue has become a popular gathering spot for locals and visitors alike and was recently featured on Tennessee Crossroads.

The 9th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge was held during CMA Fest week and raised over $27,000 for the Kenny Campbell Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Craig to honor his father who lost his battle with Colorectal Cancer at age 36.

About Craig Campbell:  In a world fueled by the smoke and mirror act of overnight success, Campbell has long been admired for his patience and persistence on the road less traveled. A consistent balancing act of traditional values and modern industry trends, Campbell is also considered by many to be one of the most talented yet under the radar stars, across all genres. The Lyons, Georgia native grew up playing his mother’s piano and singing in church. He took a job as a corrections officer in his hometown after high school, but music never left his side. He started a band and played local and national bar gigs. When the guitar player quit, Campbell took that as a sign to chase his dreams all the way to Nashville. 

Starting in 2002, the young hopeful spent the next several years paying his dues as a demo singer by day and Lower Broadway gigger by night. He connected with fellow South Georgia native Luke Bryan and started touring as his keyboard player. A year and a half long keyboard stint with Tracy Byrd soon followed, and he took over as bandleader down at The Stage on Tuesday nights on his non-touring days. His smooth chops and hot blooded stage presence caught the eye of industry execs and in 2009, Campbell signed his first record deal.

His debut single, “Family Man,” hit the Billboard top 15 in 2011. “Outta My Head” cracked the top 15, and catchy tune “Fish” garnered more than 10 million demand streams. His 2014 breakout hit “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” was on its way up the charts when Campbell got the unexpected news that his label had closed. He and his devoted team continued to press radio stations around the country, so much so that the single ended an impressive run well inside the Top 10, which is unheard of for a song with no financial backing.

A deal with Red Bow Records, a division of the Broken Bow umbrella, yielded the top 40 “Tomorrow Tonight” followed by his most poignant and well-known work to date, “Outskirts of Heaven.” “Outskirts” showcased Campbell’s vulnerability and deep-rooted faith and was praised by Rolling Stone and Taste of Country, among others.

The impact of “Outskirts” prompted media appearances and memorable performances at nationally televised NFL games, the TODAY show, CMA Fest, and the Grand Ole Opry, the latter of which he has made over 50 appearances to date. And in a full circle moment, he reunited with buddy Luke Bryan on his 2017 Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day Tour.

In the summer of 2018, Campbell released his first new music in five years with his “See You Try” EP on Broken Bow. The title track became an instant crowd pleaser with its confident, flirty lyrics and boot stompin’ melody. The EP also found a home for both an electric and acoustic version of “Outskirts of Heaven.” Campbell and Broken Bow mutually parted ways in August of 2018. After a two-year break, he launched Grindstone Records and has been busy recording and releasing his own music as well as signing other artists to his label.
