17-Track Album Features Unreleased Gems

Save/Add Album HERE

Craig Campbell packed his Grindstone Cowboy coffee house, restaurant and music venue with fans and music industry Wednesday night to play his new album, The Lost Files: Exhibit B, and reveal stories behind all 17 cuts. 
“And God said 'Let there be Exhibit B!' And it was good," said an elated Craig. "Here it is! The final LOST FILES chapter. Heart…soul…patience….all were poured into this album. I hope you can tell.”In keeping with the “lost” theme, the songs on Exhibit B comprise tracks he recorded during two previous label deals but were never released. Also included are songs he recorded since launching his own Grindstone Recordings in 2020 like “All My Friends Drink Beer” and his current single “Summer Soundtrack.” Fan favorite “It’s About Time” receives an updated modern mix on the new album.

Craig co-wrote 12 of the tracks with the likes of Blake Bollinger, Kenton Bryant, Rodney Clawson, Josh Dunn, Styles Haury, James Kelly, Wyatt McCubbin, James McNair, Lance Miller, Phil O’Donnell, Houston Phillips, Taylor Phillips, Dave Turnbull, Brad and Brett Warren. Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman, Andrew Dorff, Ben Hayslip, Brice Long, Jamie Paulin, Jonathan Singleton, Michael White, Justin Wilson contributed four cuts, and Craig’s wife Mindy Ellis Campbell wrote the beautiful “You” with AJ Kross and Mike Sprinkle.

In addition to Craig, producers on various tracks include Cooper Bascom, Blake Bollinger, Mickie Jack Cones, Phil O’Donnell, Matt Rovey, and Jeremy Stover. Cones was recently in the news for producing Craig’s gold-selling smash hit “Outskirts of Heaven.”

The first single released from the new collection is “Summer Soundtrack,” a perfect, sultry season-ender written by Craig with Phil O’Donnell and Wade Kirby and produced by Mickey Jack Cones.

Craig and his wife Mindy accomplished a longtime dream of opening Grindstone Cowboy in their home of Eagleville last year. The coffee shop, restaurant and music venue has become a popular gathering spot for locals and visitors alike and was recently featured on Tennessee Crossroads.

The 9th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge was held during CMA Fest week and raised over $27,000 for the Kenny Campbell Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Craig to honor his father who lost his battle with Colorectal Cancer at age 36.
