Big hearted Broken Bow Records star CRAIG CAMPBELL is proud to announce the official lineup of his 6TH ANNUAL CELEBRITY CORNHOLE CHALLENGE, with some of the biggest names in Country and beyond set for good times and a good cause.

Taking place at Nashville’s City Winery on June 5, this year’s event will feature CAMPBELL and his wife MINDY, as well as RUSSELL DICKERSON, LINDSAY ELL, WALKER HAYES, BRETT KISSEL, NASCAR driver SCOTT LAGASSE, JR., LOCASH’s CHRIS LUCAS and PRESTON BRUST, JERROD NIEMANN, TAYLOR PHILLIPS, DEE JAY SILVER, TEGAN MARIE, THE CADILLAC THREE’s JAREN JOHNSTON and KELBY RAY, and BRETT YOUNG.

The One Million Strong Benefit – a gala dinner, ceremony and singer-songwriter round with Campbell – at City Winery will follow on June 6, where the final tally of funds raised for Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) will be revealed. Last year’s combined events raised more than $180,000, as fans bid for the chance to compete in the tournament against the stars themselves, and dinner attendees bid on auction items like a backyard BBQ with Campbell and a NASCAR experience with Scott Lagasse, Jr., another Fight CRC spokesman.

Campbell is a national spokesperson for Fight CRC – a nonprofit organization working to increase awareness, education, advocacy and research for colorectal cancer, the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among adults in the U.S. The hit maker lost his father to the disease when he was just 11 years old. As Fight CRC’s first national spokesman, Campbell has raised more than $300,000 by co-hosting the organization’s One Million Strong benefit and his celebrity cornhole challenge.

The Georgia native will be in headlines once again on June 8, this time for releasing his highly-anticipated SEE YOU TRY EP – seven diverse tracks featuring his flirtatious chart-riser “See You Try” and two versions of the critically acclaimed “Outskirts of Heaven.” It’s Campbell’s first new collection of tunes in five years, and arrives after a standout 2017 which included Luke Bryan’s HUNTIN’, FISHIN’ AND LOVIN’ EVERY DAY Tour.

Campbell will headline select dates across North America throughout the summer of 2018.

ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:

Country singer-songwriter Craig Campbell’s neo-traditional sensibility and undeniable talent have made him a favorite of both fans and critics alike for nearly a decade. Since launching out of the legendary Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage, and into the Top 15 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with 2010’s heartfelt “Family Man,” Campbell has released two acclaimed studio albums and gathered over 1 billion radio airplay audience impressions. Singles like “Fish” have shown off the Lyons, Georgia, native’s down-home side, while the infectious romance of “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” rose into Country radio’s Top 10. A regular performer on the Grand Ole Opry and widely-praised entertainer, Campbell has been lauded by critical outlets like Rolling Stone Country and tastemakers like Country radio DJ Bobby Bones – who says “Seeing Craig perform live will change your perspective on what a well-rounded artist is.” He has been featured on NBC’s TODAY and Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, and is a frequent supporter of both the USO and Fight CRC, where he serves as a national spokesperson in the campaign against colorectal cancer. Last June, Campbell hosted the 5th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge, and has helped raise over $300,000 for the Fight CRC organization to date. Following the release of his latest hit, the uplifting 2016 ballad “Outskirts of Heaven,” Campbell has revealed a flirtatious new single – “See You Try” – and a brand new, seven-song EP of the same name on Broken Bow Records is set for June 8. He recently wrapped up Luke Bryan’s HUNTIN’, FISHIN’ AND LOVIN’ EVERY DAY Tour, and is currently headlining select dates nationwide.
