Eric Church and his band held their 2nd Annual “Put A Club In My Hand” golf tournament on August 13 at Nashville’s Gaylord Springs Golf Links. The event, benefiting MusiCares, raised $109,465, more than doubling last year’s profits. MusiCares provides assistance to music people in times of need with services covering financial, medical and personal emergencies. Members of Eric’s band have personally received assistance from MusiCares in the past.

The tournament attracted 160 golfers, including LPGA Tour players and music industry professionals. The event was made possible through efforts of Eric’s band and was produced by Big Hearted Babes. More than 50 volunteers helped the day of the event and more than 40 sponsors put forth their support, including Eric’s label, EMI Records Nashville, as presenting sponsor.

The 3rd Annual “Put A Club In My Hand” tournament will be announced next spring. Visit for more information and to support MusiCares.
