Hear the story here!

I love this song. The music we are playing on Star Country right now is just Summer-Sizzlin’!
And this is one ofthose tunes that is in my top 5 favorites. It is catchy, upbeat, positive and
easy to dance to…(homage to Dick Clark!).
As you will hear in today’s story, “Kisses” is a song just like the little engine that
could. Against the oddsit is continuing to chug up the charts. It is actually a pretty inspiring
and amazing story in this highly competitive music environment.
At the end of the story, I’ll tell you how you can help keep it going! Enjoy!~Robynn

Two-thirds of Nashville’s hottest writing trio — The Peach Pickers — are at it again. Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip have penned the new hit from Craig Campbell, “Keep Them Kisses Comin’”.

“That was a title I had for probably a year, and I had thrown it out there for several people,” Hayslip tells Roughstock. “For whatever reason, it just didn’t get written. So when Dallas and I got together that day, I threw that idea out there and he loved it. So we went after it. Dallas came up with that cool melody on that song. I think we wrote that song in an hour and a half, tops. It was a pretty fast song. Pretty soon after we wrote it, Craig Campbell heard it. Not many people heard that song, but Craig loved it from the get-go. We wrote it around the first of last year, and it’s just now coming out. It worked out pretty good. Craig’s a Georgia boy and we’re Georgia boys. I’m happy to have a single on him

The first of May, Craig and everyone else learned that his record label, Bigger Picture Group, officially closed their doors. In most cases, that means the death of a single. But not for Craig.

“People are concerned and they call and they check up on me,” the ‘Keep Them Kisses Comin’ singer says. “It’s good to have friends in the business.”

He says that several friends in radio (including Star Country) have said they will continue to broadcast his music regardless of the label, and recounts conversations which have gone something like this: “Man, you listen. Don’t worry about the song. It’s a hit song. We love you, we’re going to keep playing [‘Keep Them Kisses Comin”] … label or not, we are behind you 100 percent.”

LYRICS: Written by Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip
You got your hair down
You got that look in your eye
That says come here and get me boy
Lay me down and love me just right, yeah
Ain’t goin no where
I got a bottle of wine
I got nothin’ but time on my hands
And I’m gonna be your man tonight, ah yes I am

[Chorus:]
I can’t imagine doin’ nothin but what I’m doin
Just layin’ round tangled up with you
We got our buzz on sippin’ on a little something
I need your lovin’
Just keep them kisses comin’

It’s been a long week
I’ve been missin’ me some you
All I wanna do is get your lips on mine
Girl if you only knew, hey

[Chorus:]
I can’t imagine doin’ nothin but what I’m doin
Just layin’ round tangled up with you
We got our buzz on sippin’ on a little something
I need your lovin’
Just keep them kisses comin’
Yeah keep ‘em comin’ all night

Don’t stop killin’ me baby
Don’t stop drivin’ me crazy
I swear there’s honey on your lips
Baby give me one more long slow kiss

[Chorus:]
I can’t imagine doin’ nothin but what I’m doin
Just layin’ round tangled up with you
We got our buzz on sippin’ on a little something
I need your lovin’
Just keep them kisses comin’
Oh keep ‘em comin’ all night, hey
