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.
Craig Campbell will perform in New England at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Wednesday night. When asked if he’s surprised with the amount of country music fans up North he answered, “I wasn’t surprised. I actually have several friends from up in New England and one friend was always telling me how country music is big and that there’s lots of country fans up your way.”
With two albums, and three top twenty singles under his belt everything was looking up for Craig until his record label suddenly closed back in May of this year. He hasn’t let that stop him though. His most recent single, “Keep Them Kisses Comin'” was the biggest hit of his career and he recently partnered up to fight colon cancer. We caught up with Craig before the show to talk about what’s been a very eventful past twelve months.
