Sgt. Corrin Campbell is a singer, songwriter, bassist, and Soldier who has given her life and music to serving her country. A native of Duluth, Minnesota, Campbell entered the Army directly after graduating high school. Since her enlistment, she has served as a U.S. Army musician as both a bassist and vocalist. In 2003 she was selected to participate in the Army’s Soldier Show, showcasing her talents for seven months while performing across the United States, Guantanamo, and Korea. She was honored to perform with Wynonna Judd at the 2003 Army Birthday Ball and several TV and radio interviews covering the tour.
From 2004 to 2005 Campbell deployed to Baghdad with the 1st Cavalry Division in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom II. Serving as the lead vocalist for the rock band and bass player for the Latin band, she had the opportunity to entertain the troops across Iraq as well as performing during the farewell ceremonies for Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez and Ambassador Paul Bremer. Within this tour her band also supported USO tours by opening for Robin Williams, Ted Nugent, and Toby Keith.
Campbell then took her service in a new direction, serving in the Reserve component of the US Army and starting an independent music career in Baltimore, Maryland. Her ability as a songwriter blossomed, releasing both her first extended play and full-length album with great success. Over the next several years she toured with her band, performing from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to 6th Street in Austin, Texas. In 2010 Campbell was selected to open the Lilith Fair Revival in Columbia, Maryland. The show included performances by Sara McLachlan, the Indigo Girls, Sara Bareilles and many more. As her career as a rock artist progressed, the U.S. Army offered her an opportunity to join her two careers in a unique position as the featured performer of Army Musical Outreach.
Campbell now represents the U.S. Army Recruiting Command by performing at high schools and music festivals, as well as representing the Army in the media through telling her unique story of service to her country. Campbell also performs a reverent rendition of the National Anthem across the gamut of professional sporting events to include recent performances in Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Penn., and at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
