Long praised as a modern link to the traditional values of Country’s past, Campbell waited to release a new collection of music for five long years – and that was finally over when he released SEE YOU TRY EP on June 8, 2018. “For the past few years, I’ve created and found some of the best music of my career. Campbell’s patience paid off in the form of seven diverse tracks – including the hit singles “See You Try” and “Outskirts of Heaven.”
Growing up in the small town of Lyons, Georgia, a mix of musical gifts and hard work set Campbell’s path early on. After falling in love with classic Country, he played keyboards in his mother’s church and then on the road for an up-and-coming singer at the time named Luke Bryan, eventually landing a coveted bandleader gig in the famous Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. But with easy charisma and smooth, expressive vocal chops, Campbell was soon noticed, leading to a string of singles and two albums which earned comparisons to neo-traditional icons like Alan Jackson and Randy Travis. Campbell’s latest single (“See You Try”) is something special. Written by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard with Bart Butler, James McNair and Jordan Schmidt, the hot-blooded anthem builds on Campbell’s reputation for Country authenticity. Produced by Butler, “See You Try” moves Campbell’s sound forward with a grooving, new-school arrangement, while still staying true to his roots.
“[Classic Country] is just what I grew up on,” he explains. “It’s what I cut my teeth on, and it’s what I love. … I told Bart, ‘I don’t need to go down a road just to keep up with the Joneses. I feel like we can make it awesome and make it Country.’”
