Craig Campbell …”Never Forget” country music album review @ Music Charts Magazine dot com
“When She Grows Up” begins with daughter Preslee giving us a small sampling of her vocal talents, with “Jesus Loves Me,” then Dad takes over with a really inspiring song, all about our kids – what they are to us, and what we are to them. “What she sees in me, that’s what I want to be – when she grows up.” It’s one of those songs you won’t really want to sing along with, and your probably won’t want to dance to it, but you sure are going to want to listen to it. It is one of my favorite songs on the album.
If you have a front porch, you’ll be able to relate to “That’s Why God Made a Front Porch.” It’s one of the slow ones on the album. This one reminds me a lot of Craig Morgan’s “Almost Home.” One phrase seems to run right into the next, but you need ever one of those phrases to tell the story. While the song sounds a lot like “Almost Home,” it is a completely different story. This is a good song to put on when you want to sit back in a comfortable chair, and relax.
There are a lot of people out there who can relate to “When Ends Don’t Meet.” It pretty much tells us all what we already know about the economy, bills overdue, a leaky roof, and having someone to lean on in times of trouble.
Most of the songs on this album are slow to mid-tempo. Everyone of them is perfect for Craig, and while I have my favorite – I think he could just about release any of them to radio as his follow-up single to “Outta My Head”.
