When we spotted Craig Campbell at the Broken Bow Music Group's annual CMA Awards party in early November, we figured the in-demand free agent behind the Top 10 "Outta My Head" was soon going to announce he would be signing with one of the label's imprints and that's exactly what he did today, via a story first reported by Billboard.
"It's an amazing feeling. I've had my eyes on them, and am just in awe of how they have been breaking artists and are having so much success in being a powerhouse record label...I'm so excited."
Craig Campbell has signed with RedBow Records, the joint-venture label between Broken Bow Music Group and Sony's RED Distribution. The label is also home to Joe Nichols and hot newcomer Chase Bryant. The singer behind two well-received albums (2011's Craig Campbell and 2013's Never Regret) and the hits "Keep Them Kisses Comin'" "Fish," and "Family Man" is hard at work looking for songs on his third project and first for RedBow, though there is no timetable for when that project will hit stores. Craig Campbell became a free agent when his label home Bigger Picture ceased operations in mid-2014.
In other Craig Campbell news, Garth Brooks recently cut his "All-American Kids" song on his newly released Man Against Machine album. Campbell tells Billboard that "when we got the call that Garth was going to record one of my songs, I didn't believe it." The song is Campbell's first outside cut as a songwriter.
