Nashville, Tenn. (August 15, 2017) – Critically acclaimed Red Bow Records artist CRAIG CAMPBELL
has officially joined superstar Luke Bryan’s HUNTIN’, FISHIN’ AND
LOVIN’ EVERY DAY TOUR, kicking off a month of East Coast shows with
three incredible nights in Gilford, NH, this past week (8/8, 8/10,

A former keyboard player in Bryan’s band, the tour marks a full-circle
moment for Campbell, who credits Bryan with convincing him to pursue his
own career as a Country artist.

“He said, ‘Man you need to be writing songs, and you need to be writing
with different people, twice a day,’” Campbell recalls. “That’s where
you can define yourself as an artist, and nobody is going to sing them
better than you.’”

Campbell returned the favor with an energetic 30-minute set of
traditionally-minded Country, pumping up the thousands-strong crowd for
the night to come with stand-out tracks like “Fish,” “Outta My Head,”
“Keep Them Kisses Comin’,” and new tune “Talk Country To Me,” plus his
show-stealing, praised hit “Outskirts of Heaven.”

Still lifting spirits, “Outskirts of Heaven” continues to inspire a
hushed sense of soul-stirring wonder in audiences around the world,
showing all the marks of a career-defining single. Filled with ringing
acoustic guitars, crying steel, and heartfelt vocals, the song describes
Campbell’s love for the simple beauty of rural life, and his hope to
find the same in the hereafter.

Critics and fans alike have connected strongly with the track, with Rolling Stone Country
calling it “one of [2016]’s most faithfully Country songs” and Carrie
Underwood proclaiming, “Craig Campbell, I love ‘Outskirts of Heaven!’ It
makes me happy!!!” on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the Georgia native is working toward the release of his debut
album for Red Bow Records (more details coming soon), and is just
coming off a string of patriotic passion projects. Campbell performed a
powerful rendition of “American Anthem” for the nationally-televised
Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks score, and in December of 2016 embarked on a
star-studded USO holiday tour with stops in Turkey, Quatar,
Afghanistan, and Germany.

Campbell launched on to the Country music scene with the release of his
self-titled debut album (2011), delivering the hits “Family Man,”
“Fish,” and “When I Get It.” To date, he has logged five consecutive
charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and
over a half million downloads. Acclaimed as one of the genre’s elite
neo-traditionalist singers, his Top 15 breakout debut “Family Man” was
featured on HBO’s True Blood and fan-favorite “Fish” has
tallied nearly 400,000 digital copies sold. Campbell earned his first
Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his
sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013). The gifted songwriter co-wrote Garth Brooks “All American Kid” off of MAN AGAINST THE MACHINE.
Prior to landing his first record deal, the Lyons, GA, native spent
time on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan –
shows that inspired him nightly. He was soon discovered while playing a
regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage.
