Craig Campbell shared a piece of good news with fans on Friday night from the stage at Boots N Buckles Saloon in Lakeland… His latest hit, “Outta My Head,” just hit Top 15 on the country music charts! This song, from his upcoming album, is poised to be the most successful hit of his career.

However, it almost wasn’t his song! A copy of the song demo was accidentally emailed to him. Craig loved it at first listen and had to have it. Problem was, the song was already on hold, and was going to be recorded, by Scotty McCreery.

Veronica caught up with Craig Campbell backstage. Click the link below to listen to her interview with him, where he talks about how he was able to woo the song away from Scotty McCreery… and why Scotty actually was planning on changing the words! (What?!)
