"Family Man" Craig Campbell spreads the love

Friday, March 11, 2011 – Craig Campbell surprised an Ohio family earlier this week based on their love of his hit single.

Campbell, the man behind the single Family Man Ohio parents learned of the Vince and Amy Spicocchi family after Vince posted a family video on YouTube set to the hit.

The Massillon, Ohio fireman and registered nurse welcomed quintuplets in August 2010. The babies were born prematurely and underwent heart surgery and had to fight to survive.

Campbell hired a limousine to pick up the couple from their home and bring them to The Tangier in Akron, Ohio for WQMX's charity concert series. In addition to an acoustic set featuring Campbell and Steve Holy, Campbell met the parents backstage and presented the family with a personal check to help offset the family's expenses. A father to daughters Preslee (3) and Kinni (7 months), Campbell also gifted each child with identical onesies.

"It was beautiful," said Campbell. "All of us were crying by the end of the night, it was so special."

After moving from his hometown of Lyons, Ga. to Nashville in 2002 to pursue his country music dreams, Campbell quickly picked up work as a keyboardist in Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd's bands and was later discovered playing a regular gig at Nashville honky tonk, The Stage. Campbell's debut single, is climbing the country radio charts. The song can be found on his debut digital EP, "Five ." The song also is on his upcoming debut album, releasing April 5.

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.
