Craig Campbell always knew he wanted to be involved with music and used his musical knack as an outlet growing up. He moved to Nashville in 2002 and began playing piano for different artists, including Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd. Craig also became involved in songwriting and recording demos.
Craig eventually branched out on his own. His first song, Family Man, hit the radio in 2010 and peaked on the charts at 14 for US Country and 84 for US overall, respectively. Craig followed up his debut with Fish and When I Get It, both of which broke into the Top 40 for Country music. Perhaps Craig’s most noteable single yet has been Outta My Head, which hit airwaves in 2012 and became a Top 15 US Country Airplay song.
Craig’s album, Never Regret, was released in the middle of this year and peaked in the Top 30 for US Country music and Top 100 for US albums. Craig is currently out on the road performing his hit songs, as well as music off his two albums, Craig Campbell and Never Regret.

After selling more than a half-million tracks from his debut effort, Bigger Picture artist Craig Campbell today revealed on his Facebook page the street date and cover artwork for his highly anticipated sophomore album, NEVER REGRET. The twelve-song project, which features the evocative lead single “Outta My Head,” will join the ranks of country music hit-makers Lady Antebellum and Pistol Annies to release on May 7, 2013. On this second record, Campbell continues to work with Grammy Award winning producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and CCMA Album of The Year producer, Matt Rovey.
Shortly after the release of his sophomore record and in honor of his late father, Craig will host the inaugural Celebrity Cornhole Challenge to benefit the TJ Martell Foundation’s colon cancer research efforts. The announcement of June’s event comes at a timely moment as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month is coming to a close.
“This tournament will benefit colon cancer awareness and research, which I am very passionate about,” states Campbell. With a smile in his eyes, he continues, “my father passed away at the age of 36 from the disease, and what better event to benefit colon cancer care than a ‘Cornhole’ tournament.”
Just last week, Craig joined Alan Jackson to perform at the Stars Go Blue concert in Nashville to benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance.
