CRAIG CAMPBELL GETS SET TO RELEASE HIS U.S. HIT DEBUT ALBUM IN AUSTRALIA

 

Emerging US country star Craig Campbell will next week arrive in Australia to officially release his debut album locally and ‘Rock The Hunter’ with CMC for the very first time!

Craig Campbell is released on March 16, 2012 through ABC Music / Universal Music Australia.

Campbell is one of the special U.S. guest performers at the 2012 CMC Rocks The Hunter festival. In North America, he has already toured with the likes of Lady Antebellum, Willie Nelson and Alan Jackson.

Craig Campbell’s self-titled debut album features the three US Billboard Hot Country hit singles ‘Family Man’, ‘Fish’ and ‘When I Get It’.

When I Get’ has also hit the Top #10 on the CMC Top 30 Countdown in Australia and is attracting plenty of love on Australian country radio as well.

Craig Campbell is produced by Keith Stegall, the producer of all of Alan Jackson and the Zac Brown Band’s hit albums.

Craig Campbell was nominated in the NEW ARTIST category for SINGLE OF THE YEAR and MUSIC VIDEO OF THE YEAR at the American Country Awards on FOX in Las Vegas last December.
