Red Bow Records’ Craig Campbell recently wrapped up his first-ever USO tour as part of the Grand Ole Opry/USO 75th Anniversary Concert Series. Having visited nearly 2,000 service members and military families stationed on both the East and West Coast, the Georgia native performed a USO concert hosted by Patrick Air Force Base in Florida on Sunday (Aug. 7), then visited Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington on Tuesday.

Campbell traveled to each USO location with the Opry/USO signature microphone stand, where he continued the tradition of throwing down a replica of the famed circle of wood from center stage at the Opry House and performing for military families as part of the Opry Circle Throwdown.

He is currently in the studio with producer Mickey Jack Cones working on his RED BOW Records’ debut album.
