kidrock, Lee Brice, Michael Ray, Jameson Rodgersand others swapped their stage attire for golf gear on Monday (August 29) in support of Folds of honor.
The performers took part in the 2nd Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament at the prestigious Governors Club in Brentwood, Tennessee.
Brice, who has helped organize the event for the past two years, said he is always ready to support the Folds of Honor.
“I just heard their story and why they started this thing for the families of veterans who don’t come back. We can’t do enough for these people who have sacrificed more than the ultimate sacrifice, but all the time and the years they sacrificed,” he shared.
The artists ran the course at 90 degrees and Brice joked that it was poor planning on his part.
“I might plan the tournament in winter next time,” he said with a laugh, referring to the extreme heat.
Rodgers is also a longtime Folds of Honor supporter.
“They give scholarships to family members of fallen soldiers, is there a cooler organization than that? Between that and the softball game…it’s a great organization and I’m proud to be here,” he said while on the golf course.
Other artists who took part in the tournament are Jelly Roll, Jordan Rowe, Tyler Braden, Walker Montgomery, Hannah Ellis and Nick Wayne.
In addition to musical artists, the event also featured celebrities such as Cortland Finnegan, Rex Ryan, Ken Duke, Miranda Lambert’s husband, Brendan McLoughlin, Shawn Booth and Ryan Smyth.
The event also included a dinner, an Edwin McCain concert and a live/silent auction.
