Country singer Craig Campbell chatted with Digital Journal about his new radio single "Outskirts of Heaven," and being the spokesperson for Fight Colorectal Cancer.
His latest single, "Outskirts of Heaven," which was co-penned by Campbell, is making its way up the country charts. "Honestly, when I wrote it, I did not have any intentions of releasing it to radio. It was an idea that I had for myself. It was more like a prayer request," he said. "That's pretty much how that song came about."
Most recently, he performed the single on the Today show in New York City. "We had a great time with it. It was a bucket list thing for me. I've always wanted to do national television. It was my first time on one of the big three networks, so it was a dream come true," he said.
A Lyons, Georgia native, Campbell is in the studio working on his debut studio album for Red Bow Records with producer Mickey Jack Cones.
His father, Kenneth "Kenny" Campbell served in the army, and passed away at the age of 36 from colon cancer, so in honor of his father, he serves as a national spokesperson for Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC). Last month, he hosted the 4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge. To date, the challenge has raised over $100,000 for the organization. "The older I got, I wanted to investigate what took him away from me. He died from something that was very preventable. When I became a father, it was my goal and mission to make sure that I did everything I could to live as long as I could," he said. "I started getting screened at the age of 26, and I've had three colonoscopies so far, and everything has been clear so far. I wanted to make sure that color cancer is not the reason I left this earth, just for my girls."
Campbell exploded on the country music scene with his self-titled debut album, which included his lead single, the ballad "Family Man," the follow-up single “Fish,” and his Top 10 hit single, the infectious "Keep Them Kisses Comin'."
He listed Adele, Lee Ann Womack and Cam as his dream female duet choices. "I would love to do a song with Cam," he admitted.
