Known for sharing his platform with servicemen and servicewomen; veterans and veteran farmers; and his own BG Nation, multi-Platinum recording artist Brantley Gilbert has contributed $75,000 to ACM Lifting Lives’ COVID-19 Response Fund to support those in the entertainment industry who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19.
On Saturday, April 17, Gilbert hosted 500 fans on three separate trail rides at Brimstone Recreation in Huntsville, Tennessee, followed by a live show presented by Whiskey Jam, with all proceeds benefiting the COVID-19 Response Fund.
“We had such a great time out on the trails in East Tennessee and it made it that much sweeter knowing we were there to help people who really need an extra hand right now,” shares Gilbert. “I’m honored to present this check to ACM Lifting Lives on behalf of BG Nation and I’m so grateful for our partners who made this such a fantastic event.”
“Brantley has been such a wonderful partner to our fund,” shares Executive Director of ACM Lifting Lives Lyndsay Cruz. “He and his team came to us at an important moment to lend their help finding ways to raise money for our colleagues who are still in immediate financial need due to the pandemic. We are grateful to be the beneficiaries of his inaugural trail ride.”
A longtime partner of Gilbert, Polaris continues to support his event, donating a RZR Trail S1000 Ultimate that will be available for auction later this summer, while Camping World will donate an off-road vehicle trailer, also available for auction later this summer. All monies raised via auction will directly benefit the ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund. Additional auction details will be announced at a later date.
Since the launch of the ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund, $3.5 million has been raised and distributed thanks to many sponsors and individuals. Visit www.ACMLiftingLives.org to contribute to the fund in support of ongoing relief efforts.
