Craig Campbell has had a year of ups and downs. He’s celebrated the most successful song of his career with “Keep Them Kisses Coming” while simultaneously dealing with the reality of his record label, Bigger Picture, closing. Thankfully, Craig is homeless no more.
According to Billboard, Craig has a new music home after signing with Thompson Square label Red Bow Records.
“I’ve been buddies with Thompson Square for a long time, and when the label closed, I got a call from Kiefer [Thompson] who asked me what was going on. I told him, and he said, ‘[Label owner] Benny Brown is all about good music, and he would be lucky to have you. Do you want me to make a call?’ I told him that if he felt comfortable, that would be awesome. For another artist to come to me and tell me that they wanted me to be a part of their label, that was pretty cool.”
And Campbell is loving being associated with a label head who understands him as an artist. “Benny is a music man, and he’s got a great track record of picking great songs. He loves country music, and that’s what I am. I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into being a more traditional sound, but I do feel that is where I fit. He gets it. He understands me and my music, and that’s another reason I wanted to be over there.”
No word yet on when we can expect new music from Craig, but he’s in the process of putting together songs, and he knows it will be the best yet. You can read more here.
