CAMPBELL KICKED OFF THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH CAPTIVATING PERFORMANCE AT
THE 69th ANNUAL MACY’S GREAT TREE LIGHTING IN ATLANTA SUNDAY NIGHT
Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter To Perform Chart-Rising “Outskirts Of
Heaven” At Chicago’s McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade (11/24)
NASHVILLE, TN (November 22, 2016) – RED BOW Records’ Craig Campbell
kicked off the holiday season with a captivating performance at the
69th Annual Macy’s Great Tree Lighting in Atlanta, GA on Sunday
(11/20). His set featured his hits “Outskirts of Heaven” and “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” and
festive covers including Alan Jackson’s “I Only Want You For Christmas”
and the classic “White Christmas.” As a Georgia native, Campbell was
thrilled to join in this flagship event that has become a state
tradition for nearly 7 decades. Making the night even brighter, the
singer-songwriter shared the stage with award-winning artists Aloe Blacc
and Michelle Williams for the big finale of “O Holy Night” complete
with spectacular fireworks and tree lighting.
Next stop for Campbell is Chicago, IL, where he will perform his Top
40-and-climbing single “Outskirts of Heaven” at the 83rd annual
McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade, airing live on November 24 at 8:00a CT
on WGN 9 Chicago or WGN America.
Campbell made his national TV debut earlier this year with “Outskirts of Heaven” (Campbell, Dave Turnball) on NBC’s TODAY
and the powerful song has racked up rave reviews with fans praising;
“brought me to tears,” “gave me chills,” and claimed “this is what
country music is supposed to sound like.”
Following 2015’s “Tomorrow Tonight,” Campbell has been in the studio
working on his RED BOW Records debut album. Previously sharing the stage
with Randy Houser, Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann, and
Justin Moore, he is currently playing shows nationwide and working with
the Grand Ole Opry on a tour in honor of the USO’s 75th anniversary with
more details to be announced soon.
ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:
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 most
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.
