Craig Campbell, ‘Tomorrow Tonight’ [Listen]
Craig Campbell’s two biggest hits have been safer than the gold at Fort Knox, but “Tomorrow Tonight” pushes the envelope, albeit only slightly. The love song begins in the bedroom, with a very vivid image of shrapnel left by a clothing tornado.
The singer helped write the song, his first from an upcoming third studio album. “Tomorrow you’re gonna pick your clothes / Up off these hardwood floors and walk out my door / Tomorrow you’re gonna hate the sun / For rising and breaking up what we got going on,” he sings.
It will be refreshing for many to hear this track not fall into country’s newest over-relied-upon trope, the one-night stand song. This is a love song, and it’s clear the couple have every intention in making tomorrow tonight all over again.
“Cause tonight, I’m kissing you right / And holding you like this night ain’t ever gonna end / Tonight you’ll lose track of time / Trying to keep that moonlight shining bright / Hanging high up in the sky girl / I’m gonna change your tomorrow, tonight,” the "Keep Them Kisses Comin’” singer cries out.
It’s a strong vocal performance for a man who slips under the radar all too often. Now with Red Bow Records, he’ll have his chance to become a star. Songs like this are built for radio success, and his tight lyricism will pull the track in that direction.
Why Fans Will Love It: Campbell adds a little more spice to his brand of country music than fans are used to.
Key Lyrics: "Tonight you’ll lose track of time / Trying to keep that moonlight shining bright / Hanging high up in the sky girl / I’m gonna change your tomorrow, tonight.”
Did You Know?: After Campbell's last record label closed, artists, independent promoters and radio stations banded together to give the singer a Top 10 hit. He says if that'd hadn't happened it's unlikely he'd have gotten another record deal.
