Countryfest 2015 is less than a week away, so I thought I’d post a little story about one of the stars that we’ll see on July 11 at The Schaghticoke Fairgrounds (Hope you have your tickets).

Like almost every country music star, Countryfest 2015 artist Craig Campbell didn’t become famous overnight. Craig had a somewhat musical background starting at his mom’s church, when he was about 8-years-old. He played piano there until he was 18. One of his musical endeavors included putting a band together during his teen age years, called Out Of The Blue.

Georgia native Craig Campbell’s musical road eventually brought him to Nashville, and found some jobs where he was working as a musician. One of those jobs included working and playing in classic country artist Tracy Byrd’s band. During this time, Craig also recorded many demo tapes. Another part of Craig’s musical history included playing in Luke Bryan’s touring band.

His current hit single is called ‘Tomorrow Tonight’.

Now, let’s get a little sample of what we’re going to hear at Countryfest, here’s one of Craig Campbell's greatest hits, called 'Outta My Head'.
