Josh Turner, Joe Nichols, Craig Morgan, Trailer Choir and Laura Bell Bundy aren't afraid to return to their days in elementary school if it means they can help out a charity or five.

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, the popular syndicated television show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, is celebrating Country Week on CMT.

As with all the of the show's celebrity episodes, country stars played to benefit their favorite charities. Craig competed for his Craig Morgan Charity Fund, Josh's appearance benefited his Fund for the Arts, Laura Bell raised money for her Kreative Kids Foundation, Joe upped the ante for the MusiCares Foundation and Trailer Choir added to the coffers at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

How much money did each artist raise for charity? You'll have to tune in to find out. While Craig's episode aired yesterday (Sept. 20), Josh, Laura Bell, Joe and Trailer Choir's appear today through Friday.
