We just discussed Craig Campbell earlier this week. He came out with a really cool, really unique cover of Royals.
I wasn’t sure what that song was, but it seems to be just a fun, attention-getting cover. I think that’s cool.
Now we get the real single from Craig. This is the followup single to his recent top 15 hit Outta My Head, which took a year to reach its peak on the charts.
Will this one take as long?
Keep Them Kisses Comin’ – Craig Campbell
That’s all I can say. I had the chance to get this album earlier in the year and there are some really strong songs on it. This one definitely stood out.
It’s a love song. It’s upbeat and fun. It’s not sappy unless you read the lyrics without the music.
The song is just about the joy of being in love. It’s playful with being in love and keeping the kisses coming with your lover.
Craig Campbell is one of my favorite artists. He’s not had four top 40 singles with two of those making the top 15. That’s not an easy thing to do especially for an artist that’s on an independent label. He’s been the success of his label and I think it’s because he knows how to write and find really good modern country songs.
Great to see him still having success and I think this new single should do just as well.
I’m pulling for it to become his first top ten hit.
Will he make it there?
