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.

I recently was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to speak with country singer/songwriter, author, advocate, philanthropist, and all around incredible human being, Jimmy Wayne. I learned a lot about Jimmy during our time together, including how he became involved with country music, the work he does to raise awareness of important issues, and the fact that he will never come visit me in South Florida (thanks to alligators and the “Stand Your Ground” law). Despite my disdain about the fact that he won’t be jet-setting my way in the foreseeable future, I feel like my conversation with Jimmy was eye-opening and life-changing. It is my honor and an incredible privilege to share with all of you my interview with Mr. Jimmy Wayne!
