BBR Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of Craig Campbell to its Magic Mustang Music publishing roster. The news follows Campbell’s signing to BBR Music Group’s label imprint, RED BOW RECORDS, last month.

Campbell recently scored his first Top 10 hit with the catchy, up-tempo “Keep Them Kisses Comin’,” which continued its ascent at Country Radio even after former label Bigger Picture Group closed its doors in May 2014.

“I have known Craig for a while and have always been impressed by his talent,” says Juli Newton-Griffith, VP of Publishing for Magic Mustang Music. “To have him as part of our team is beyond exciting. We are ready to hit the ground running!”

The talented artist-songwriter has already marked several songwriting milestones in his career including a co-write credit on the song “All American Kid” featured on country music legend Garth Brooks’ new album MAN AGAINST THE MACHINE. In addition, Campbell co-penned the majority of songs featured on his 2011 self-titled debut album including Top 15 autobiographical hit “Family Man” and co-wrote half of 2013 sophomore release NEVER REGRET. To date, Campbell has achieved four consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads.

“I’m super excited to join the Magic Mustang roster,” shares Campbell. “Some of my favorite songs I’ve written have been with writers Rob Hatch and Justin Wilson, and now to be a part of that family is a pretty big deal to me. I’ve always admired what Juli and the Magic Mustang team do in the publishing world and I am so looking forward to what is ahead.”

 

Craig Campbell Signs with Red Bow Records

Craig Campbell

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.
