Cornhole for a Cause

Cornhole for a Cause

June 7, 2017

Country artist Craig Campbell hosted the 5th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge and third One Million Strong benefit in Nashville. The afternoon-to-evening event raised funds for the non-profit Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), which works to increase awareness, education, and research for colorectal cancer, the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among adults. 

Campbell was only 11 when he lost his father at age 36 to colorectal cancer. This was the 5th consecutive year for the fundraiser, and Campbell has high hopes for the future. "I would love for it to get bigger, and bigger, and bigger," he said. "The objective for me is to just keep it growing so that we can spread more awareness and raise more money to eliminate colon cancer." 

Alongside Campbell stood several of his talented friends. Artists in attendance included Mindy Campbell (Mrs. Craig Campbell), Trent Harmon, Dee Jay Silver, Jackie Lee, Love and Theft, Jerrod Niemann, Parmalee, Michael Ray, Thompson Square, and NASCAR driver Scott Lagasse

Campbell also has some big plans coming up in the near future, including going on tour which he considers a dream come true.

"2017 is definitely shaping up to be a really good year for me. Should be having a new song coming out in the next couple of months and then also I'll be going on tour with Luke Bryan this fall, starting in August. It's kind of a dream come true for me. I used to play piano for Luke a long time ago, so it's almost like a full-circle event for me."
