Craig Campbell

I Made 'Royals' Mine and I'm Gonna Crush More Pop

Lorde was just the start for Craig Campbell -- the dude who turned "Royals" into a country hit ... because he says he's fixin' to slap some twang on a slew of other pop songs.

We got Craig leaving Losers bar in Nashville where he explained how a good ol' boy from Georgia ends up singing a New Zealand teenager's song.

Hint: It's all about that southern accent.

Watch the clip ... Craig also tells us he's going back to the well -- cranking out a medley of songs from different genres.

He's looking at you, Justin Bieber.

FUN FACT: Losers features $5 fried pickles! Daily. Gotta love Nashville.

Unlike most other people I don't think that song or Lorde is all that great, although I loved New Zealand when I was there.

Dude is trying to be the country version of Richard Cheese.

Nothing wrong with that; it's just not that novel of an idea.

Instead of putting a country spin on other peoples work, write your own stuff!
