Press Release
With just a sip of Craig Allen’s latest release, Now That’s a Country Song, you’ll be refreshed knowing that real country music and songwriting is still alive and well.
It is touching… that good. He’s in the room when you play the thing.”
– Jimmy Hall | Music Reviewer –
(NASHVILLE, TN, U.S.A.) February 25th, 2015Craig Allen has proof that Craig Aleenauthentic, hard-hitting country music is still alive and well in Music City. Speaking of “still” and “proof,” Allen has brewed some top-shelf “Moonshine” in his latest release, Now That’s a Country Song. However, he has much more than just a score about ‘white whiskey’ to offer his thirsty fans. On this eleven-tracked-trek, Craig takes his fans through heart-tugging ballads, as well as blistering, deep-fried southern country rock.
A vocalist since the age of fifteen, Allen co-wrote and self-produced more than half of the compositions on Now That’s a Country Song. Craig can - and does - bring his real country roots and life experiences into the songs he performs. “I’m more of a lyricist. I never underestimate the power of the melody, but in the end, it’s all about the story,” he explains. Raised in the hills of Eastern Tennessee, Allen has spent years crafting his performance skills and wowing crowds on the club circuit as he made his way to Music Row. “I’ve done it all in the venues, from small gigs to performing with a twenty-piece orchestra. It’s prepared me for Nashville, offers Craig.
The key tracks on Now That’s a Country Song include the album’s title track as well as, “Moonshine,” “God Missed Her Most,” and “Dead Man’s Hand.” “Moonshine” is a slick, ‘sons-of-the-south’ lick - with a touch of traditional outlaw country rocked in for good measure. Craig’s gem, “God Missed Her Most” pulls at the heartstrings as a tender ballad about the loss of a loved one. The single is already gathering attention - not only from Craig’s fans – but also from St. Jude’s Children’s Fund,which has expressed interest in the song.
Dead Man’s Hand” is a haunting, Old West-styled, mid-tempo song that tells the story of the last cards held by the legendary Wild Bill Hickok. Allen’s self-managed ReynoldsMusicGroup has inked a marketing deal with “Dead Man’s Hand” and Bustout Poker Apparel to market the song. Now That’s a Country Song is the culmination of the years and experience Craig has put into his craft in order to pay his dues. Once fans get a sip of his “Moonshine” and other top-shelf tunes, there’s going to be a lot of people left saying, “Now That’s a Country Song.”
