RED BOW Records’ country artist Craig Campbell hosted the 5th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge and 3rd One Million Strong Benefit in Nashville, TN on Tuesday (6/6). Also a Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) national spokesperson, he started this campaign to bring awareness to the disease that killed his father at age 36.  Both events combined raised over $180,000 for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention.

Fellow celebrities Dee Jay Silver, Trent Harmon, Nascar driver Scott Lagasse, Jr., Jackie Lee, Love and Theft, Jerrod Niemann, Parmalee, Michael Ray and Thompson Square played in support of Fight CRC this year.  Hundreds of fans turned out for the challenge, which came down to Team Dee Jay Silver and Team Craig Campbell. The host ultimately lost the game but won the loser’s bracket.  

“So proud of how the cornhole challenge turned out,” shared Campbell. “I am grateful to all the celebrities who came out and helped us raise so much money for Fight CRC. Can’t wait to do it again next year!”

The 3rd One Million Strong benefit dinner followed with Campbell on host duties. It featured a cocktail reception, live and silent auctions, and an intimate concert with Campbell, Rivers Rutherford and Jimmy Yeary. Nashville leaders, Mayor Megan Barry and Chief Medical Officer of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Andrea Willis offered remarks. Larry Nall, Senior Vice President of Provider Network Management, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, was recognized for his leadership around colorectal cancer awareness and advocacy.

On Sunday, Campbell is performing at CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN, on the Chevrolet Riverfront stage at 11:30am. He is currently playing select shows nationwide and will join Luke Bryan’s HUNTIN’ FISHIN’ AND LOVIN’ EVERY DAY TOUR on August 8. In between tour stops, he is in the studio working on his RED BOW Records debut album, featuring lead track and critically acclaimed single, “Outskirts of Heaven.”

Campbell launched on to the country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album (2011) delivering the hits “Family Man,” “Fish,” and “When I Get It.” To date, he has logged five consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads.
