NASHVILLE, TN (November 16, 2016) – RED BOW Record’s Craig Campbell is gearing up for this holiday season and will be kicking it off right with a few festive performances, including the annual Macy’s Great Tree Lighting in Atlanta, GA (11/20) and McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade in Chicago, IL (11/24).
The Macy’s Great Tree Lighting shines even brighter for the
singer/songwriter since this top holiday tradition has taken place in
his home state of GA for nearly seven decades. Campbell will perform
live alongside award-winning artists such as Aloe Blacc, Michelle
Williams and more. Keeping in the holiday spirit, Campbell will travel
to Chicago, IL where he is set to take the stage at the 83rd annual
McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade to perform his Top 40-and-climbing single
“Outskirts of Heaven.” The parade airs live on November 24 at 8:00a CT
on WGN 9 Chicago or WGN America.
Campbell performed the critically-acclaimed “Outskirts of Heaven” (Campbell, Dave Turnball) on NBC’sTODAY
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.”
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.
