On July 10, 2018, country star Craig Campbell chatted with Digital Journal about his new EP, "See You Try," which came out last month. He also opened up about being the spokesperson for Fight CRC.
His new EP features seven tracks, including the flirtatious new single, "See You Try," and two versions of his uplifting critical triumph, "Outskirts of Heaven." "I wanted to make sure that each song on there was different from the other one. We had recorded those songs over the past three years, and they stood the test of time. It just worked out," Campbell said.
On June 26, 2018, Campbell performed at Hackensack Meridian Health Stage 17 for NASH FM 94.7 in New York. "It was great to play there. It has been a long time since I have been up that way. It was a treat for me, to come up and play a few songs for NASH FM, since I hadn't really done anything with the station before. I had been looking forward to hang out with those guys at the station. It was fun," he explained.
Campbell also serves as the national spokesperson for Fight CRC, where he is honoring his late father Kenneth "Kenny" Campbell who passed away at the age of 36 from colon cancer. Campbell has raised over $450,000 for the organization to date. On June 5, 2018, he hosted the sixth annual "Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge" during CMA Music Fest with such country stars as Brett Young, Lindsay Ell, Jerrod Niemann, Tegan Marie and others, participating. "The tournament was great, and we raised a lot of money for Fight CRC. It is getting bigger and bigger each year," he said.

A Georgia native, Campbell noted that his biggest daily motivations are his family, which include his wife, Mindy, and daughters Preslee and Kinni Rose. "I have an amazing family that is proud of me. I am motivated by the simple things," he said.
A bucket-list moment from Campbell, included him co-writing "All American Kid," which was featured on Country Music Hall of Famer Garth Brooks' last studio album, Man Against the Machine.
Digital transformation of modern country music
On the impact of technology and streaming services on the country music scene, Campbell said, "I think it's a good thing. Music is being consumed in so many different ways now. It is just the way it evolves. For country music to continue to grow as a genre, we have to embrace the streaming part of it. I am glad to be a part of it."
See You Try is available on iTunes. "The fans should go and get it. I have been working on it for a while now. It has some really good music on there. I am very proud of it," he said.
