Sounding like a Luke Bryan who vacations in Myrtle rather than Cancun, and looking like the kind of soft-faced good ol' boy you'd introduce to ma and pa, Craig Campbell was born to be a second-tier country star. Although Never Regret, a 42-minute celebration of young love and old morals, is as sentimental as his last, it is, with few exceptions, less clever. One exception: title track "Never Regret" (as in, "Don't make me do something I'll"), which flips an uncomfortable phrase until it's first-kiss sweet. Another: "My Baby's Daddy," on which he convinces us that he's having in-law issues.
