Campbell finds himself with "The Lost Files"

Wednesday, January 18, 2023 – Craig Campbell will release a new album, "The Lost Files: Exhibit A," on Feb. 17 through his own Grindstone Recordings.

This is the first part of a double album. The first single from the project, "Tractor Songs," was written by Walker Hayes and drops Jan. 27.

"This double album has been a long time coming," Campbell tweeted. "After becoming an independent artist back in 2019, I have been chomping at the bit to get this music to you. This collection of music is very special to me. These are songs that I love and believe in with all that I am. My fans fell in love with me when there was steel and fiddle on my records. I truly hate that I got away from that for a bit trying to chase something that wasn't real, but I humbly admit, I am a work in progress. Not everyone is going to love this album, and I am ok with that. However, THIS is the real me. Unfiltered, unapologetic, and from my heart."

As for the single, Campbell tweeted, "Sometimes you hear songs on the radio and say, 'Man! That's a hit! I wish I could cut that before they did!' All I can say is I'm glad I cut Tractor Songs before anyone else! Shoutout to Walker for sending this song to me first."

The new disc contains new recordings along with material Campbell cut for previous labels, but were unreleased.

Campbell helped write 11 of the 16 songs.

Campbell, 43, has released two full-length CDs and two Eps. The most recent release was "See You Try" in2018 on Red Bow Records. He enjoyed top 20 hits with "Family Man" in 2010 and "Keep Them Kisses Comin'" in 2013.

CD review - Never Regret Chances are good people will think they've heard an unknown Dierks Bentley song on the radio, when in fact it was actually a Craig Campbell tune. That's because Campbell sounds a whole lot like Bentley during "Never Regret." About the only chief difference between Campbell and Bentley songs, however, is how Bentley adds so much humor to his tunes. He also has a far more expressive singing voice. One of the few places Campbell adds in some humor is during My Baby's ...
CD review - Outta My Head Think of Craig Campbell's "Outta My Head" EP as a batter in the on deck circle. The title track will be the lead single on his upcoming sophomore album with Bigger Picture. Coming in at just over 16 minutes, its brevity is matched only by its catchiness. Each of the five tracks has lead single potential. Styles range from the reggae tinged My Baby's Daddy to the rocking Keep Them Kisses Comin.' Having spent time playing with Tracy Byrd, Campbell is cut from the traditionalist cloth. ...
