LEE BRICE AND JOE’S BAR DONATE MONEY RAISED

AT AUGUST 16TH SHOW TO ACM LIFTING LIVES®

Encino, CA (August 23, 2013) –Curb recording artist Lee Brice headlined Joe’s Bar on Friday, August 16th with a portion of the proceeds benefitting ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music.  The show raised more than $28,000 for ACM Lifting Lives – more than this series of events has ever raised at Joe’s -- which will go to help fund organizations that are improving lives through the power of music. 

Ed Warm, co-owner of the two-time ACM Nightclub of the Year and board member of both the Academy of Country Music and ACM Lifting Lives, spearheaded the show.  This is the third Joe’s Bar performance that has benefitted ACM Lifting Lives.  The first, in 2011, featured performances by ACM Award winner LeAnn Rimes and Crystal Bowersox and the second, in 2012, was headlined by Gary Allan.        

“At Joe’s, we love hosting these shows and raising money for ACM Lifting Lives,” said Warm. “Thank you to Lee Brice and the fans for making this night such a success for everyone.”
