COUNTRY STAR CRAIG CAMPBELL SIGNS PUBLISHING DEAL WITH BBR MUSIC GROUPíS MAGIC MUSTANG MUSIC

BBR Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of Craig Campbell to its Magic Mustang Music publishing roster. The news follows Campbell’s signing to BBR Music Group’s label imprint, RED BOW RECORDS, last month.

Campbell recently scored his first Top 10 hit with the catchy, up-tempo “Keep Them Kisses Comin’,” which continued its ascent at Country Radio even after former label Bigger Picture Group closed its doors in May 2014.

"I have known Craig for a while and have always been impressed by his talent,” says Juli Newton-Griffith, VP of Publishing for Magic Mustang Music. “To have him as part of our team is beyond exciting. We are ready to hit the ground running!”

The talented artist-songwriter has already marked several songwriting milestones in his career including a co-write credit on the song “All American Kid” featured on country music legend Garth Brooks’ new album MAN AGAINST THE MACHINE. In addition, Campbell co-penned the majority of songs featured on his 2011 self-titled debut album including Top 15 autobiographical hit “Family Man” and co-wrote half of 2013 sophomore release NEVER REGRET. To date, Campbell has achieved four consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads.

"I'm super excited to join the Magic Mustang roster," shares Campbell. "Some of my favorite songs I've written have been with writers Rob Hatch and Justin Wilson, and now to be a part of that family is a pretty big deal to me. I've always admired what Juli and the Magic Mustang team do in the publishing world and I am so looking forward to what is ahead."

Campbell is booked by William Morris Endeavor and is a SESAC songwriter.

ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:

Craig Campbell launched on to the Country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album (2011) delivering the hits “Family Man,” “Fish,” and “When I Get It.” Acclaimed as one of the genre's most neo-traditionalist singers, his Top 15 debut hit “Family Man” was featured on HBO’s True Blood and the top-selling fan-favorite “Fish” has tallied nearly 400,000 digital copies sold. Most recently, Campbell earned his first Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013) produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and Matt Rovey (CCMA Album Of The Year Producer). The gifted songwriter co-penned six of the tracks on the twelve-song project. A native of Lyons, Georgia, Campbell moved to Nashville in 2002. Prior to landing his first record deal, Campbell spent time on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan’s bands - gigs that inspired him nightly - and was soon discovered playing a regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage.
