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.

Craig Campbell, Chuck Wicks, and Jana Kramer Join Forces to Raise Money for Charity

The 17th annual Buds ‘N’ Suds benefit for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America was held in Nashville, and included performances from up-and-coming talent as well as established artists, and a silent auction featuring autographed items from legends like Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney.

Hosted by Blair Garner of America’s Morning Show, the show began with acoustic performances by Kaleigh Bullard (Miss Nashville), the Mann Sisters, and Emi Sunshine, a dynamite young girl with a personality as big as her vocals.

Craig Campbell kicked off the full band portion of the show with a cover of the Brooks & Dunn hit “Play Something Country.” His 40-minute set was a high-energy honkytonk experience that included his hits “Family Man” and “Keep Those Kisses Comin,” as well as a surprise cover of “Royals” by Lorde. He is currently working on finalizing the details of a new record deal, and is excited about the direction of his future.

“Upward! I haven’t had a number one yet, so that’s first and foremost for me,” said Campbell, when talking about his goals for working with a new team.

Chuck Wicks continued to keep the crowd on their feet with his hits “All I Ever Wanted” and his brand new single, “Saturday Afternoon.”

“I wrote it with two guys that are on fire, Chris Tompkins and Rodney Clawson. I wrote this song from a fun place, and when I would sing it live, the immediate reaction from it sparked ‘maybe people are going to react to this pretty positively’ and hopefully at the radio level it does the same thing,” said Wicks.

The ladies in the crowd swooned over Wicks as he sang sultry songs like “Hold That Thought,” which was voted as one of the top 20 hottest music videos by CMT. Wicks is currently in the studio wrapping up a new album and hopes to release it in the coming months.

Jana Kramer ended the night with a fun set of her music, including new songs that will be on an upcoming album.

“A lot of the songs on this new album are songs that I’ve written and co-written a lot more than the first album. I’ve definitely stepped up and let my life shine through these songs.”

Her current single, “Love,” represents a multitude of emotions, not just romantic love.

“The song is about love in general, the love that’s out there, not just relationships; for me, that’s in paying it forward and giving back,” said Kramer.

While none of the performers have been directly impacted by Crohn’s disease or colitis, they all agreed that it’s a cause worth supporting, and that their purpose as entertainers is not only to perform, but to give back to the community at any chance they get.

“This is what we were put here to do. We get out and play music and sing for fun, but when it comes down to it, the only reason we have our celebrity status is to do things like this,” said Craig Campbell.
