Who would think that tossing a few beanbags
could raise $35,000?  That’s what
happened on the Tuesday of CMA Fest week when the star-studded 7th Annual Craig
Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge raised more than $35,000 for Fight
Colorectal Cancer. Instead of being outdoors in the hot sun (or the rain, for
that matter) the venue was the air-conditioned comfort of the ballroom in
Nashville’s Omni Hotel.  But the swanky
environs 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!”

In addition to 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 joined Craig, his wife Mindy and their two
daughters for the very personal cause. Craig’s father passed away with
colorectal cancer at age 36, and he, his friends and family have now raised
over $335,000 for Fight Colorectal Cancer. More about Fight Colorectal Cancer at
www.FightCRC.org and see Campbell’s FB
