Craig Campbell will host the “4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge” in honor of his late father who lost his battle with the disease at age 36. Fellow country stars Michael Ray, Canaan Smith and more to be announced will appear at this year’s event on Tuesday, June 7th from 1-3pm near 5th Avenue and Demonbreun Street in downtown Nashville, TN. As a national spokesperson for the cause, Campbell strives to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention.
“We’ve been so blessed over the past three years with the success of my celebrity cornhole tournaments, that we’re gonna do another!” shared Campbell. “The event gets bigger and better every year. It makes me smile to know that we are raising so much money for research and awareness of this terrible disease.”
