Country singer Lee Brice raised an impressive $100,000 this past weekend for Fold of Honor, a charity that provides scholarships for the families of service members who have fallen or been disabled while on duty for the U.S. army.

Brice raised the money over the course of two events: his annual Lee Brice and & Friends Guitar Pull at City Winery on Sept. 10, and the Record Rack Celebrity Clays Shoot that he hosted at the Nashville Gun Club on Sept. 11. Both events featured performances from friends, including Charles Esten, Lucas Hoge, Tyler Farr?, and his own brother Lewis Brice. 

“I’m grateful and humbled by the support of my friends, sponsors and the incredible audience at City Winery who not only paid for tickets but participated in the silent auction,” Lee said during the event.  “Together, we’re making a difference in the lives of families who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”
