4TH ANNUAL CRAIG CAMPBELL CELEBRITY CORNHOLE CHALLENGE RAISES $35,000 FOR COLORECTAL CANCER


The RED BOW Records’ Artist, In Partnership With Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), Raises Awareness For Colorectal Cancer Education, Research And Prevention





NASHVILLE, TN (June 9, 2016) - RED BOW Records’ artist Craig Campbell hosted the “4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge” Tuesday (6/7) in honor of his late father who lost his battle with the disease at age 36. Fellow country stars Blackjack Billy, Brett Kissel, Canaan Smith, Jerrod Niemann, Kristian Bush, Lauren Alaina, Mary Sarah, Matt Stillwell, Michael Ray, Thompson Square, Trailer Choir and wife Mindy played in support of this year’s event in downtown Nashville, TN. The tournament came down to Team Canaan Smith and Team Craig Campbell, with the event’s host ultimately being crowned the winner for 2016. As a national spokesperson for the cause, Campbell strives to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention. This year, the event raised over $35,000.
“We had a huge day! All my friends came out, we raised a ton of money and I feel like we educated more people about colon cancer,” enthused Campbell. “Success!”
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.
