Craig Campbell raised awareness for colorectal cancer in the best way possible — a cornhole challenge filled with celebrities, great food, and even better drinks!

Taking place inside the Omni Hotel right in Downtown Nashville during the 2019 CMA Music Festival on Tuesday (June 4), Craig Campbell’s 7th Annual Celebrity Cornhole Challenge scored with plenty of cornhole action – a bag-toss game popular with tailgaters all around the nation – plus a celebrity cast which featured Campbell and his wife Mindy, their two daughters, Jerrod Niemann, Jimmie Allen, Lauren Alaina, Adam Craig, Ernest, Trea Landon, Love and Theft’s Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles, Tyler Rich, DeeJay Silver, Anna Vaus, Christen Whitney, Mark Wills and Clay Walker. 

 

The event was an overall success for Craig; he raised over $35,000 for Fight CRC — an organization that he is truly passionate about — AND took home first place in the competition!

Being in the comfort of an air conditioned ballroom in Nashville’s Omni Hotel didn’t stop the smack talk between the 16 artists and celebrities and the players who bid to partner with them. Host Craig Campbell and Country star Jerrod Niemann – who has played in all seven Celebrity Cornhole Challenges – were pitted against each other in the final round. When the last beanbag fell, Craig emerged victorious.

“Once again, the cornhole tournament was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who worked and participated to make it all happen,” said Craig. “I’m so proud of what we’ve done and very excited to see what we’re gonna do. We will eliminate colon cancer one bag toss at a time!”
