BIG NAMES LOOKING TO SCORE IN SUPPORT OF
FIGHT COLORECTAL CANCER ON JUNE 5
“SEE YOU TRY” HIT MAKER HAS HELPED RAISE MORE THAN $300K TO DATE
Taking place at Nashville’s City Winery on June 5, this year’s event will feature Craig 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.
