If you find yourself in the Nashville area at the end of this month, you won’t want to miss this great opportunity to support our fellow country music bloggers CountryMusicIsLove and the City of Hope!
CountryMusicIsLove is proud to announce the 3rd Annual CountryMusicIsLove Concert benefiting City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading research, treatment and education centers for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This year’s concert will feature acoustic performances by Micheal Ray, Chris Cavanaugh, Kristen Kelly, THE FARM, JT Hodges, Chuck Wicks, Love and Theft, Casey James, and Craig Campbell. Whitney Duncan will do double duty as host and performer for the second year in a row.
The cause hits close to home for many of the artists, including Casey James. “My family has been massively affected by cancer,” James shares. “My Paw-Paw passed away last year from cancer. My Nana passed away from cancer and my mother is a two-time cancer survivor, thyroid and breast. I can go on and on. There’s a large history of that in my family. Anything I can do to help and to do my part to make things better, I’ve always been into doing that, so it was an honor to be asked to come out and play. I’m excited to play the music and come see the fans, but most excited just to be a part of the whole thing.”
The 3nd Annual CountryMusicIsLove Concert benefiting City of Hope will be held February 21, 2012 at 7:30pm at Exit/In in Nashville, Tenn. Tickets are $15 and 100% of tickets sales will be donated to City of Hope. Tickets are available here: http://bit.ly/cmiltickets.
Leave it to to the singer of “When I Get It” to get something no other country has got: An invitation to take part in AOL’s “In House” series.
During a recent visit to new York, Craig Campbell stopped by the AOL Studios to participate in their popular music series. “In House” is an original web series where AOL Music welcomes an artist to the office for interview, live performance, photo shoot and what they call a “chill session” with the staff. Incredibly, Campbell is the first country artist they’ve had in the “House”. Check out his visit by clicking here.
Only one month after making his national television debut, Craig Campbell is back at it again. He’ll be performing his latest single “When I Get It” for a national audience on Fox News Channel’s Huckabee show. Fans can catch his performance on Saturday, January 22nd at 8 pm EST on Fox News. It will repeat again at 11 pm EST.
Craig’s new single is a co-write by Craig with Jason Matthews and Jim McCormick. It’s a light-hearted anthem for the common working man. The music video for the single was shot by Wes Edwards in a continuous take. Watch the official music video for “When I Get It” below and make sure to tune in to Craig’s performance on Fox News this weekend.
Art often imitates life, and the set of Craig Campbell’s new video for working class anthem “When I Get It” was no exception. While attempting to shoot the fast action, tongue-in-cheek humorous music video, Craig and the crew found themselves at a standstill on set without any electrical power. Apparently, the owner of the private East Nashville home where the video was shot had neglected to pay his electric bill, which just so happens to be the lyrical premise of the song. The situation was rectified and shooting resumed within a few hours, resulting in the true-to-life video clip.
“When I Get It,” written by Campbell, Jason Matthews and Jim McCormick, is a tempo track with a light hearted lyric that describes the relatable financial struggles of the middle class. The song Music Row describes as an “extremely likeable, hard-times, sing-along tune,” is sure to become a fast fan favorite.
Directed by Wes Edwards/Ruckus Films (Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Trace Adkins), the video is unique in that it is taken from one continuous shot, without any editing. The video depicts Campbell’s belongings being repossessed by movers played by his true-life band members.
“Rehearsing the complicated sequence of movers, camera, and Craig in order to do in one take was stressful, but paid off in the end,” adds Edwards. “We pulled it off in one take and I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished!”
The “When I Get It” music video will premiere on Great American Country (GAC) starting this week. It can also be viewed HERE and other TV outlets in the coming days.
“When I Get It” is the third single from Campbell’s recently released self-titled debut album.
