Long celebrated for his new-school take on classic Country, Red Bow Records’ CRAIG CAMPBELL is back with a fresh blast of uptempo fun, offering up a brand-new single titled “See You Try” today (3/16).
Penned by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard with James McNair and Jordan Schmidt, the twangy barstool anthem finds Campbell shifting gears for a wild-and-free hit in the making, marking his first release since 2016’s uplifting critical triumph, “Outskirts of Heaven.”
“I feel like it was well worth the wait on my end, and I’m hoping the fans will feel the same way,” Campbell says of the track. “I believe in divine providence and I feel like this song was meant for me, so I’m excited, and I feel like this is a game-changer.”
Check out yesterday’s world premiere of “See You Try” – including a flirtatious lyric video featuring Campbell’s beautiful wife, Mindy – on Billboard.com.
Produced by Bart Butler (Jon Pardi’s CALIFORNIA SUNRISE), “See You Try” feels like a natural mix of fan favorites “Fish” and “Keep Them Kisses Comin’,” as Campbell playfully invites a country cutie to see if she can change his mind about a boys’ night out. Well known as a devoted family man, though, Campbell says the irresistible track reminds him of one woman and one woman only – his wife of more than 12 years.
“When I’m doing my thing with my friends and she’s ready to leave, I love for her to try to convince me,” he explains. “Like ‘Hey, it’s time to go. And if you go with me right now, then this is gonna happen.’ Even though we’ve been married for a little while now, I still get excited when she does those things.”
