Craig Campbell's still considered an up-and-coming country artist, but he's been around for a while.

Even before he broke into the country music big-time a couple years back with his first album, titled simply "Craig Campbell," and before he produced such hit singles as "Fish," "Keep Them Kisses Coming" and "Family Man," Campbell was a keyboardist in the bands of country stars Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd.

He'll perform Tuesday at McKechnie Field after the spring training game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Toronto Blue Jays.

The game starts at 1:05 p.m. which means Campbell's concert should start around 4 p.m. There's no extra charge for the concert, but the only way to see the concert is to buy a ticket for the game.

If you want to see the game, you might want to get there a bit early. The first 2,500 hands to walk through the gates will get a free Pirates camouflage cap.

Radio personalities Join Maverick and Lulu from 106.5 CTQ will be at the game and the concert, and their station will be giving away some tickets over the next few days.

Details: 1:05 p.m. March 25, McKechnie Field, 1611 Ninth St. W. Bradenton. Tickets: $14 and up. Information: 941-747-3031,
