Eric Church Golf Tournament Brings in the Bucks for Charity
Eric Church‘s third annual ‘Put a Club in My Hand’ golf tournament brought in some big money for MusiCares.
The event took place on Aug. 4 at Gaylord Springs Golf Links in Nashville and raised over $112,000 for the charity, which provides assistance for those in the music industry who need help with medical, financial and personal emergencies.
“MusiCares is overwhelmed by the generous support of the Eric Church Band and their annual golf tournament,” says Debbie Carroll, Executive Director at MusiCares. “Over the past three years, the tournament has grossed close to $275,000, and those funds have gone to helping so many music people in need. They are ensuring that we can continue to make a true difference in the lives of many. We can’t thank them enough.”
The event featured 160 registered golfers and a silent auction with items from Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Easton Corbin, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Taylor Swift and the Cadillac Three, as well as the Nashville Predators and other sport franchises.
Church recently released the music video for his current single ‘Cold One,’ the third single off of his No. 1 album, ‘The Outsiders.’
