"When you go out and buy an album, and I've done it myself, you sometimes feel, 'Well the songs on the radio were great but the rest was OK,'" the singer acknowledges. "When they play this record, I want them to say, 'Man, I like the songs on the radio, but I love this other song even better!' That's what's rewarding about an album.
"No matter what level of an artist you are, you choose songs based on who you are at that time and how you feel," Craig continues. "I'm at a point in my life where I'm extremely comfortable. Extremely confident. I feel good about my family, my children, my friends, my career. The songs that I picked, looking back now, reflect that."
Craig signed with Black River Entertainment in April, following the announcement of his amicable parting with his three-year label home, BNA Records, back in February. 'This Ole Boy' is climbing the country charts, currently sitting within the Top 40.
