CRAIG CAMPBELL RELEASES NEW SINGLE, “FISH,”
TO COUNTRY RADIO
TO COUNTRY RADIO
Nashville, TN…(May 16, 2011)…After seeing his very first single, “Family Man,” become a Top 15 hit at country radio, Bigger Picture Group artist Craig Campbell is set to release his newest musical offering, the tongue-in-cheek follow-up single, “Fish.” The song will deliver May 16th via PlayMPE.
“Fish” is the second single from Campbell’s recently released self-titled debut album, which has the biggest first week sales from any debut male artist out this year.
Produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and written by Campbell with Arlos Smith and Ashe Underwood, “Fish” playfully tells the story of a man and woman enjoying a favorite pastime together.
In addition to the new single “Fish” at country radio, Campbell is preparing to set out on the Country Throwdown tour. The shows, which include Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice and more, kick off May 27 in Philadelphia.
ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL: After moving from his hometown of Lyons, Georgia to Nashville in 2002 to pursue his country music dreams, Craig Campbell quickly picked up work as a keyboardist in Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd’s bands and was later discovered playing a regular gig at legendary Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. The singer-songwriter has earned well-deserved praise from the country’s toughest critics for his recently released self-titled debut album. Campbell’s autobiographical lead single, “Family Man” was a top 15 hit and the new single “Fish” is out now. Starting this month he’ll join Willie Nelson on the Country Throwdown Tour.

Hello fellow players, First of all, I would like to thank all of you for the tremendous response I�m getting from you for the articles on players and their guitars. Being in Nashville through the golden days of Sho-Bud was very interesting to see. Being there to see so much of the design work and thinking that went into this wonderful company was amazing and yes it was painful to see it come to the end that it has, however the demand for good Sho-Buds is like the demand for �32 Fords and �57 Chevys. The demand is there regardless of the factories producing them. Sure, the new Chevys of today are extremely quick, get great mileage and the air conditioning always blow cold, but when you see one pass you on the road, you never look at it twice. But let a �57 Chevrolet convertible pass you from either direction and you�ll definitely say �Wow!� The Sho-Bud guitars are receiving some of this charisma themselves. Just look at the steel guitar forum and see where somebody may post asking for pictures of Sho-Buds in the world today. All the beautiful Sho-Buds that show up are really a treat to see. Let�s face it guys, Sierra, Emmons, MSA, Mullen, GFI and most other brands just don�t have that beauty that reaches out and slaps you in the face the way that the Sho-Bud guitar does. It�s pretty hard to not love something that�s made of wood that�s so exotic today that buying and selling it is against the law. Sho-Bud has used all the great exotic woods in the past. Ebony, zebrawood, purple heart, the best burl walnut, Brazilian rosewood and the greatest birdseye maple that�s ever been found along with many other types of exotic woods that are now on the worldwide endangered list. It won�t be long until just owning a guitar made of some of these exotic woods will put the price of the guitar over the top for most folks. The finishes that have been put on most of these old guitars are hand rubbed lacquer applied with the greatest of care. As most of you know, I am a Bigsby steel guitar fan also, but Bigsby did not make guitars with the variety of wood that Shot Jackson did at Sho-Bud, or let�s just say, the Jackson family did at Sho-Bud. Bigsbys now have reached values that are astronomic for steel guitars, with even old rough ones going for $12,000 and up. Some star owned double and triple neck guitars with 10 string necks and pedals are going from $40 � 80,000. The early Sho-Bud guitars are just now starting to break loose in the world of collectability, originality still being a big factor. It�s hard to predict what guitars being made today will collectable in the future, but it�s a pretty sure bet that Clinesmith and Jackson and some early Emmons push pull guitars will be climbing the list of desirable guitars to have as time goes by. Things that are going to make guitars collectable are the things that have made them collectable in the past. Quality, tone, exotic materials, rarity and so on. Restoring a fantastic old Sho-Bud will not hurt the value of the guitar if pains are taken to keep the guitar original. Things like tuning keys and pickups can be changed without hurting the value of the guitar. Chrome plating, buffing the aluminum and replateing any steel parts will not hurt of the value of the guitar, but done with care can enhance the value. I remember twenty five years ago the little three leg Fender guitars were worth almost nothing. Today, restored correctly, they are definitely getting to be very valuable. The good thing is again, just like restoring a classic car and driving it daily, a restored steel guitar can be worth the small investment for restoration to enhance its playability. I�m seeing many great steel guitar players reaching back in time and buying guitars like the Fender Dual Professional, Gibson Console Grand and Rickenbacker doubles and triples and definitely the little Rickenbacker Bakelite and Frypan lapsteels. One thing that everybody needs to be very careful of is getting an old guitar to restore and it having no value, now or in the future. Unfortunately, some fairly well known guitars will never be worth much. Like the National double eight. A good guitar, just not much retail value, restored or not. The same with some Rickenbacker models. It seems like every Fender has value in the collector market as do many of the non-pedal Gibsons. The little Gibson Consolette is a very nice little guitar with a good value when it�s in good condition. Most of what I�ve been saying here in the last few paragraphs concerns non-pedal guitars. Many of these guitars have had a pedal or two added. Done correctly with class and quality, this will not hurt the value of the guitar. Shot Jackson himself, before the days of Sho-Bud, did many non-pedal to pedal guitar conversions. Any of these are worth big money today. He converted guitars for such artists as James Farmer with Marty Robbins, Howard White with Cowboy Copas and many players that were on the Nashville scene in the mid-fifties. Shot was doing so many of these conversions that he decided to start a steel guitar company and build the whole guitar and not just add pedals to some other brand of steel guitar. This was the beginning of the Sho-Bud venture in the mid-fifties. These guitars that Shot converted are better guitars today than they were when he did them because strings can be bought today (Cobra Coil) that are much more durable than strings that were being built in the mid-fifties. If there is a steel guitar in your past that had legs and sounded like a million dollars to you, you can probably get one very inexpensively and have one or two pedals installed on it, then go back and learn all those great licks that were being played on records in the fifties and be known as one of the best steel players ever. This sort of takes us back to Ralph Mooney and his double neck eight string Magnatone. He added a pedal to this guitar very crudely fashioned from a car jack handle that had previously been used as a lug wrench and turned that little rascal into a million dollar lifetime achievement. Talk about tone? Mooney was wonderful in all commercial aspects of playing his commercial style as simply as possible.

Interview with Leah Seawright
CL: I’m Christian Lamitschka and today I present you Leah Seawright. Leah, welcome to the show.
LS: Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here.
CL: Leah, could you please introduce yourself to our piers who might be hearing about you for the first time and what kind of music you are playing?
LS: Well I’m Leah Seawright and I’m a country artist. We do all genre of country, we the rocking country, we do a little throw back to old country. I have a great appreciation to all country music. I’m definitely a country artist, you could probably tell that by talking to you.
CL: Folks, she’s a country music artist and she has out a single called “On The Back Roads”. Tell us about this great song.
LS: “On The Back Roads” is a song that I wrote about the wild teenage years; I don’t know if you went through those or not. It’s about riding around on the back roads, young, carefree and a kind of rebellious a little bit. We’re about to do a video for this single. We are excited about it, because I don’t know if you guys know about NASCAR.
CL: Oh yes, we call it Formula One, but we know a lot about NASCAR.
LS: Yea, we got a NASCAR driver named AJ Allmendinger. I think he finished 11th at the Daytona Race. He drives for Richard Petty Enterprises. We are excited about that. We’ve got a bran new video coming out.
CL: Cool! I said before I don’t have the whole album in my hand, but we will talk about this album. How many songs does it have it and what is your personal favorite song on it?
LS: Oh my goodness, there are 14 tracks on the album. Thirteen songs that I wrote and it’s like picking out a favorite child. I can’t really pick a favorite song on the album. Right now I’m gonna say “On The Back Road”. I love them all. I can be inspired by just every day life. Stuff that everybody goes through. I try to make my music very relateable so when you listen to it, you’ve gone through that, maybe you can relate to it. But it’s a great album, we’re very proud of it.
CL: I know you are not single, you are married to a great guy. Isn’t he a little bit jealous if you are always on the road?
LS: No he’s with me good bit of the time. He believes what I supposed to do and he’s behind me 100%.

BRITISH COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST BECOMES CITY MAYOR
Bryan Chalker Named Bath’s Highest Official
Bryan Chalker, one-time stalwart of the British and European country music scene and champion of all things old, takes on a new role as Mayor Elect of the World Heritage City of Bath. He commences his post on June 4, following a major ceremony at the Abbey attended by more than 700 guests.
Chalker, now in his 70th year, has enjoyed a varied career but much of it linked to country music. Throughout the 1970s he fronted the highly popular and influential New Frontier band and recorded three ground-breaking folk-rock albums produced by Les Reed. In later years Bryan moved into radio as a presenter and spent three decades working for various stations here and in the Middle-East. In addition to his radio work he continued to record, producing the award-winning ‘From The Waters Of The Medway’ album for BBC Records & Tapes and a trio of folksy-style LPs for Sweet Folk & Country and Emerald, and contributing feature stories to such magazines as Stage & Television Today, Melody Maker, Disc & Music Echo, Country Music Review, Classic Car Weekly, The Automobile, Music Maker, Old Glory, Vintage Spirit and Classic Van & Pickup. He also found time to write his first book, ‘This Is Country Music’ (Phoebus) and during the 1980s produced three highly successful cookery books for Redcliffe Books and the Bath Chronicle newspaper. Bryan is now putting the finishing touches to a fourth book of recipes.
In 2002, Bryan Chalker retired from broadcasting and the following year stood as a Conservative candidate in the local elections and was elected councillor for Lambridge, Bath, where he is now beginning his third four-year term. In a whirlwind eight-year period Chalker has made his mark as Member Champion for Heritage & Historic Environment, served a year as Vice-Chairman of Bath & North East Somerset Council and then became Chairman. If that wasn’t enough to keep him occupied, he has also spent the past nine months organising Bath’s first-ever Americana Festival for May 18-22 and starring Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike, Leon Hunt & The Scoville Units, The Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys, Brian Golbey, Tjaye Martin, Ian Cal-Ford & The Railmen, Kate Lissauer, Bob Fish, The Applejacks and the Olde Boston Tea Party. This has been a labour of love for Bryan Chalker and he has been able to assemble a small-scale festival to highlight elements of bluegrass and other Appalachian threads and focus on the autoharp, clawhammer banjo, dobro – and clogging!
Chalker’s last album, ‘Legacy’ was an artistic success for him and gave him the opportunity to exploit his fondness for quirky old songs – several by the late Jimmy Driftwood – and unusual acoustic instruments, including the autoharp, lap-slide steel guitar and jaws-harp. He is an excellent jaws-harp exponent and in recent months has appeared on radio and television demonstrating its unique sound.
Bryan’s theme for his year as Mayor of Bath is ‘Industrial Heritage’, as he feels that much of what the city achieved as a manufacturing centre from the 18th century until fairly recently, has been airbrushed from history. Bath was once associated with Sir Isaac Pitman and his Pitman Press, Stothert & Pitt crane makers, Harbutt’s Plasticine, the Horstman motor car, stone mines, brass and flour mills, furniture and soap manufacture, coal mining and brewing. Chalker is also conscious of the neglect shown to the River Avon, which flows through the city and is now part of a large and influential body intent on revitalising this vital element of the World Heritage Site. Bath also has its wonderful canal system and railway linked to one of Bryan’s great heroes, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
The new mayoral year looks like being a good one for Bath, with an elected politician who loves Bluegrass, Cajun and Old-Time country music and drives a 1974 East German 2-stroke Trabant car; a slice of motoring heritage in itself.
