Get your country on with this ballad.
Country crooner Craig Campbell has a hit on his hands, at least to our ears, with his latest single "Tomorrow Tonight," which is the country equivalent of a power ballad. The song isn't super slow, but it is big, bold, romantic and emotional and it is powered by riffs. So don't expect to hear this song accompany a sex scene on a soap opera! A love montage in a film? Absolutely.
Country music lives and dies by its lyrics and Campbell's latest track tells the story about changing your tomorrow… tonight and forever, perhaps.
It's a love song about the now and the beyond.
And that's a sentiment that listeners can and will relate to as it runs the course of three minutes. It's delivered in Campbell's rich, twangy voice and accompanied by a toe-tapper rhythm and guitars. There is a super short solo about two minutes in and it adds such a jolt to the song, with will get fans grooving and singing along.
The song isn't intentionally anthemic but that's exactly what it becomes. When Campbell rips through "Tomorrow Tonight" in concert, it'll be easy to envision his legion of fans rising to their feet and singing along to every single word.
If country is a genre that you might thumb your nose at, well, that's silly. Why not let your latest foray into one of the most commercially successful genres—this scene has like 16 awards shows a year!—come in the form of C. Campbell's "Tomorrow Tonight?"
Craig Campbell isn't an outlaw. He's not a love-em-and-leave-em type. He's not pop country either. He's accessible with "Tomorrow Tonight."
"Tomorrow Tonight" from Craig Campbell is available now.
