ERIC CHURCH RAISES BIG BUCKS FOR MUSICARES
Written by Warren Ellison on August 29, 2017
The Eric Church Band held its sixth annual “Put a Club In My Hand” golf tournament earlier this month and raised $203,818 for MusiCares, the charitable arm of The Recording Academy which provides a safety net of assistance for those in the music industry to help with medical, financial, and personal emergencies. The invitation-only tournament was held at Gaylord Springs Golf Links in Nashville. With this year’s contribution, the tournament has raised nearly $850,000 for the charity since its inception in 2012. The sold-out event included an 18-hole scramble for 156 golfers as well as a charity silent auction, including memorabilia and experiences from Eric, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, The Black Keys, Metallica, Dallas Cowboys, NY Giants, Nashville Predators, Tennessee Titans and many more artists & professional sports franchises.
