Craig Campbell & Friends Fight Colorectal Cancer with 5th Annual Cornhole Challenge

Craig Campbell hosted the 5th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge at City Winery earlier this month (June 6) during the 2017 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tenn.

Dee Jay Silver, Trent Harmon, Nascar driver Scott Lagasse, Jr., Jackie Lee, Love and Theft, Jerrod Niemann, Parmalee, Michael Ray and Thompson Square were paired against fans that bid online for the opportunity to play a round of cornhole in support of Fight CRC.  Despite the huge thunderstorms that were happening throughout the day, 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.

“I’m 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!”

For those of you who don’t know, Campbell is a Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) national spokesperson and started this campaign to bring awareness to the disease that killed his father at age 36. We love when celebrities use their voice for good!

“This is why we’re here,” Campbell told CS Country on the red carpet. “We play and sing country music for fun, but events like these if what we’re here for.”

Congrats, Craig for raising over $180,000 for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention!
