The RED BOW Records’ Artist, in Partnership With Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), Invites Friends to Help Support The Cause
NASHVILLE, TN (May 17, 2016)– RED BOW Records’ artist Craig Campbell
will host the “4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge”
in honor of his late father who lost his battle with the disease at age
36. Fellow country stars Michael Ray, Canaan Smith
and more to be announced will appear at this year’s event on Tuesday,
June 7th from 1-3pm near 5th Avenue and Demonbreun Street in downtown
Nashville, TN. As a national spokesperson for the cause, Campbell
strives to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer education,
research and prevention.
“We’ve been so blessed over the past three years with the success of my
celebrity cornhole tournaments, that we’re gonna do another!” shared
Campbell. “The event gets bigger and better every year. It makes me
smile to know that we are raising so much money for research and
awareness of this terrible disease.”
During the “4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge,”
artists will be paired with fans that bid online for the chance to play
with them. The game is conducted in a bracket style with the
non-celebrity winner receiving a commemorative cornhole board at the
end. The “4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge” is
open to the public with all proceeds benefitting Fight CRC. Visit smarturl.it/Cornhole2016
for a chance to play in the competition and to participate in the
online auction featuring items donated by artists and sponsors.
Additional information regarding tickets and VIP opportunities will be
announced soon. Following the tournament, Campbell will take the stage
to perform for the annual “Music City Gives Back” concert.
Campbell is currently climbing the country radio charts with new single
“Outskirts of Heaven” that he co-wrote with Dave Turnbull (Kenny
Chesney, Blake Shelton) and Rolling Stone Country describes as
“a ballad with a sweeping, Nineties-style twang.” Following 2015’s
“Tomorrow Tonight,” he has been in the studio with producer Mickey Jack
Cones working on his RED BOW Records debut album. Having shared the
stage with Randy Houser, Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann
and Justin Moore, he is currently touring across the U.S. and will be
playing major fairs and festivals throughout the summer.
ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:
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. Acclaimed as one of the genre's most
neo-traditionalist singers, his Top 15 breakout debut “Family Man” was
featured on HBO’s True Blood and fan-favorite “Fish” has
tallied nearly 400,000 digital copies sold. Campbell earned his first
Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his
sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013). The gifted songwriter co-wrote Garth Brooks "All American Kid" off of MAN AGAINST THE MACHINE.
Prior to landing his first record deal, the Lyons, GA native spent time
on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan - shows
that inspired him nightly. He was soon discovered while playing a
regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage.
