Craig Campbell is hitting the road, in celebration of his newest single. The Georgia native will embark on his Craig Campbell Tour, by God, on March 4, in Franklin, Ohio, with rising star Syles Haury joining him on the first four dates.
“I can’t wait to hit the road on this ‘by God’ tour and introduce Styles to a whole bunch of people,” Campbell says. “We became instant buds, and I became an instant fan. This cat’s the real deal – great songwriter with an amazing voice. People are gonna love this guy.”
Campbell decided to release “by God” after asking his fans, via TikTok, which song he should release next, with the overwhelming majority voting in favor of “by God.”
“I am super pumped this song is finally gonna be heard!” Campbell says. “I am as excited about this song as I was when I wrote ‘Outskirts Of Heaven,’ and it is just as authentic…by God!”
Campbell released “Never Mine” last year, featuring his wife, Mindy, in the video.
“The idea for ‘Never Mine’ was something that I came up with a while back,” Campbell previously told Everything Nash. “I had the idea of ‘Never mind, you were never mine.’ I thought that was kind of cool. I love those titles that sound the same, but mean different things. But I never could get my brain wrapped around what that meant, or how to make it a good song. So I would throw it out during some co-writes and my co-writers were like, ‘Yeah, that’s cool,’ but we never could figure it out.
“And then one day I woke up and it just hit,” he recalls. ‘Never Mine’ was this and this and this. We had a great time. I thought we had something special, but I was wrong. You were never mine.’ I threw it out that day at our co-write and my co-writers loved it. We chased it down and wrote a good song.”
Campbell’s new “by God” single will be released on February 25. Pre-save of the song is available now here. All of Campbell’s music, as well as a list of his upcoming shows, can be found by visiting his website.
