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.
