Craig Campbell Gears Up to Host 6th Annual Cornhole Challenge and Release New EP, “See You Try”

Craig Campbell will find himself in a familiar role on June 5 as he hosts his 6th annual Celebrity Cornhole Challenge at Nashville’s City Winery. Over the years, Craig has helped raise more than $200,000 as a national spokesperson for Fight CRC, a charity organization which supports research, education and awareness for colorectal cancer.

“My dad was 36 when he died with colon cancer,” says Craig to Nash Country Daily. “It’s always been something I wanted to talk about. The older I got, the more I realized that my dad died at a very young age. And if he would have known and been educated about colorectal cancer and the steps to prevent it, there’s a chance he could still be around hanging out with us right now. So that’s my message. Don’t be scared of a colonoscopy . . . Colon cancer is very preventable. Colon cancer is very treatable. We need to educate people on that fact that if you catch it soon enough, it can be [treated].”

Three days after the Cornhole Challenge, Craig will drop a new seven-song EP, See You Try. The new EP will be Craig’s first project since he released Never Regret in May 2013. The EP’s title track and lead single is currently No. 52 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after four weeks.

“For the past few years, I’ve created and found some of the best music of my career,” says Craig. “I’m beyond excited to release this EP and show the country music world what I’ve been up to. I’m very proud of the music and can’t wait for everyone to finally hear these songs.”
