Shoutout to Craig Campbell who held his third annual Celebrity Cornhole Challenge event this past Sunday in Nashville. The “Outta My Head” singer became a national spokesperson for Fight Colorectal Cancer this past year and teamed up with the organization to make this year’s event bigger and better. Fans, families of those affected by the disease, and celebrities were all invited out to participate in friendly games of cornhole while raising awareness. Singers such as Jerrod Niemann, Charlie Worsham, Lindsay Ell, LoCash, and the members of Blackjack Billy were all on hand to support this cause. At the end of the day, it was a team lead by Brad Cummings, of Blackjack Billy, who won the event.
Kristy Lee Cook wasn’t loving the lack of true cowboys and cowgirls in today’s country music. So she decided to do something about it. Her most recent single, “Lookin’ for a Cowgirl” and is exactly that. A track that Rolling Stone Country said,” [Paints] a picture of a woman who isn’t planning on laying seductively in the back of her bro-country boyfriend’s pickup truck. She’s going to drive the thing herself, full-throttle,” shows Cook’s true cowgirl side. We talked to the BBR Music Group singer about that song, what’s coming next, and her thoughts on the lack of women in today’s country music.
If you think you don’t know who Kristian Bush is you’re likely mistaken. He’s a guy from Sugarland, not a guy rather the guy. As the group takes a hiatus Bush has decided to pursue a solo project. His debut single is catchy, fun loving, and spreads a message that’s perfect for the holiday season. “Trailer Hitch” is the type of song that makes you want to get up and dance, and then go out and do something good for the world. It’s the perfect single to introduce Bush, the solo artist, to the national scene. We caught up with Kristian this week to chat about “Trailer Hitch,” his upcoming album Southern Gravity, and his charity work with Goodwill.
