Campbell has long been admired for his patience and persistence on the road less travelled. A consistent balancing act of traditional values and modern industry trends, Campbell is also considered by many to be one of the most talented yet under the radar stars across all genres. He put together a string of Top 10 hits on two labels before launching Grindstone Records with his “It’s About Time” single in 2020. His songs include “All My Friends Drink Beer,” “What a Girl Will Make You Do,” “Good Things You Do In a Truck,” “Family Man,” “Outta My Head,” “Fish,” “Keep Them Kisses Comin,” “Tomorrow Tonight” and his most poignant and well known work to date, “Outskirts of Heaven.” Campbell started signing and producing new artists to Grindstone Records including Cody Cozz and Ethan Payne. “I’ve been recording and producing music my way, and that includes things I’ve never done before, like playing piano and producing. I’m not gonna even entertain the idea of recording any song if it doesn’t give me chills, and the same goes for artists we sign to Grindstone Records. I have to be proud of it. I have to answer for it and it has to get me fired up,” Campbell said. “Man, oh man…I love where I am!”
