City Of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge

City Of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge

Last night was a great way to kick-off the CMA Music Festival with the 19th annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge. We spent a couple of hours before the game interviewing many of the participants – Montgomery Gentry, Chuck Wicks, Julianne Hough, Craig Morgan, Jason Michael Carroll, Jake Owen, Jimmy Wayne, the Carter Twins and many more! As always, the game is a great time for the stars to let loose and have some fun with each other. Carrie Underwood and Whitney Duncan both shined throughout the game with their superb skills on the ball field while Julianne Hough swung the bat for admittedly the first time in her life! She did great – she even took a pitch from boyfriend Chuck Wicks who was on the opposing team! We were rooting for Team Opry, and lucky for us, they won!

We’ll have the video interviews posted for you in the next few days, but in the mean time, here are some pics from the game.
