Nashville Industry Invited to Participate in Sept. 25 Benefit at Gaylord Springs Golf Links
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Tuesday, August 28, 2012) – The musicians behind platinum-selling country music artist Eric Church
are banding together to benefit GRAMMY’s MusiCares® and calling on
other industry professionals to do the same. On Sept. 25, 2012 they will
host the inaugural “Put A Club In My Hand” charity golf tournament at
Gaylord Springs Golf Links in Nashville, TN commencing with a shotgun
start at 1:30 p.m. Industry professionals and musicians are invited to
compete for the championship, plus have access to complimentary food,
prizes, contests and more.
Spearheading the tournament is Church’s bass player, Lee Hendricks, who came up with the idea alongside Church’s other band members: Jeff Cease, Jeff Hyde, Driver Williams and Craig Wright, along with Michael Todd Stembridge,
Church’s set carpenter. They are hosting the event in an effort to give
back to MusiCares®, a non-profit GRAMMY organization that provides a
safety net of critical assistance for music professionals in times of
need.
“I lost a lot of equipment in the Nashville flood, but MusicCares®
came in immediately and helped me recover from those financial losses.
We, as a band, would love to see Music City step up and repay them for
helping to alleviate so much hardship within our community in such a
dire time of need, and also acknowledge what they do on a daily basis to
make sure all of us are taken care of,” says Hendricks. “They’ve done
so much for us…we want to give back.”
The 18-hole tournament will include a long-drive competition, a
closest-to-the-pin contest and a putting contest. Thirty-six teams will
compete for the championship in a four-man scramble format.
Reflecting on his band’s involvement, Eric Church says, “I could
not be more proud to have my guys step up and decide to do something on
their own to give to an organization that helps so many musicians in
need. They realized how much they had been helped and wanted to ensure
other people would have that opportunity in the future. I certainly will
be supporting their efforts and want everyone else to join me.” 
Cost of registration is $150 per person. Registration includes
tournament entry, a $50 credit in TaylorMade/Adidas mobile pro shop and
complimentary food and beverages.
Prizes to be given away include a PRS guitar and a not-to-be-missed Hawaiian vacation package.
