Moonshine Flats in Downtown San Diego
Growing up in a strong Southern Baptist home, Campbell fell in love early with the sounds of Country radio, and built a foundation not just as a singer and performer, but as a songwriter. That dedication to the craft made him not only understand the importance of crafting songs like the fan-favorite “Tomorrow Tonight” with trusted collaborators, but also to keep writing, constantly. It’s an ethos that recently led to Garth Brooks himself cutting his track “All American Kid” for Man Against the Machine. And now, the release of “Outskirts of Heaven,” serves as the blueprint for his road ahead, full of songs that tug at heartstrings, push boundaries and seep in with infectious melodies. “All the songs we are writing are all very committed and current,” he says. “But it’s still me, singing. That’s the main thing I want people to say, at the end of the day: that I’m a great singer, who truly loves country music.”

Moonshine Beach in Pacific Beach
Frankie Ballard’s rise as an artist comes from the connection he makes through his music and the real emotion it creates with his listeners. Nowhere has that been more evident than in Ballard’s breakthrough Top 15 hit, “Helluva Life.” Helluva Life is the opener from Sunshine & Whiskey, an album that announces Ballard as one of the genre’s most nuanced singers and writers. He first graced the public spotlight with two Top 30 singles, “Tell Me You Get Lonely” and “A Buncha Girls,” appearing on the Grand Ole Opry and playing packed arenas opening for Kenny Chesney and on major tours with Taylor Swift and longtime idol, Bob Seger. Ballard says, the album “…represents the beginning of what people will call my sound.” It’s a mixture of influences. From country classics to blues legends and Southern rock to contemporary sounds, his sound is held together by his artistic personality. Like heroes including Willie Nelson and Hank Jr., Ballard makes everything he touches his own, a result, more than anything, of a decade of honing his craft on stages all over the country. Capturing the essence of his energetic stage shows, Sunshine & Whiskey represents the perfect re-emergence for a singer whose journey reflects all of life’s ups and downs.
