Craig Campbell Plays Bartender at CMA Fest Party
Just by listening to some of Craig Campbell’s songs, like, say, “Fish,” you know this cowboy likes to have fun. And you can even taste that fun side when you sip his cocktail of choice—a perfect mixture of Malibu rum and passion fruit.
“It’s called Craig’s Summer Jam, that’s my concoction,” Craig says. “It’s mixed with Sprite, and to give it some color, we put a splash of grenadine in it.”
Trust Craig, as he knows a thing or two about cocktails. The singer was the celebrity bartender, serving up drinks and autographs to fans, at a party thrown by the tropical clothing line Team Cocktail in downtown Nashville on Friday (June 7) during CMA Music Festival.
“We do a lot of drinkin’ out on the road to pass the time. I came up with this drink for the summer because it tastes like summer,” Craig says. “I like to have a good time.”
While Craig’s single “Outta My Head” is starting to take off at radio, his new album Never Regret offers a sexier and, let’s just say, more adventurous side of the country music artist. Listen to the track “Topless” for instance.
“I just got done playing and I was trying to get everyone to take their shirts off, but no one bit,” Craig jokes about the song. “I would’ve taken mine off, if they had taken theirs off.”
No fair, Craig, no fair!
