When Craig Campbell's deep baritone sidles up against the rich, neo-traditional music his band lays down, it's a match made in heaven. Campbell impresses on his debut, delivering a set that balances hard-time themes with a robust sense of humor, like on "When I Get It," which sums up the economic climate perfectly. Familial songs such as "Family Man" and "My Little Cowboy" also stand out, thanks mostly to Campbell's deep, sincere delivery. This Georgia native co-wrote all but two songs on his debut, meaning there's plenty more where these gems came from.
