Jamey Johnson recently raised a big chunk of money for the fight against pancreatic cancer.

Johnson was a headliner at a benefit concert at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works in late September, where he put on a show along with Shooter Jennings, Jerrod Niemann and Randy Houser and raised over $45,000 for the Nikki Mitchell Foundation. A few days later, Johnson headed down to Alabama to host the fourth annual Jamey Johnson Golf Tournament, which raised an additional $67,000 for the charity.

“I’m so grateful to my friends for donating their time to fight pancreatic cancer,” Johnson says in a press release. “This is important to me because I’ve lost so many friends to pancreatic cancer in the last few years.”

The Nikki Mitchell Foundation was founded in honor of Waylon Jennings‘ former business manager, who died from pancreatic cancer in 2013. The organization funnels money to research focused toward pancreatic cancer prevention and patient care.

“We at the Nikki Mitchell Foundation are thrilled with the two events and with the continued support of our generous artists and sponsors,” the foundation’s president, Rhonda Miles, says. “We want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts.”
