A portion of the proceeds from Lee Brice’s headlining show at Chicago’s Joe’s Bar on Aug. 16 benefited the Academy of Country Music‘s Lifting Lives charity. The show raised more than $28,000 for the cause – a record amount for the concert series — which will go to help fund organizations that are improving lives through the power of music. This is the third Joe’s Bar performance that has supported Lifting Lives; the first, in 2011, featured LeAnn Rimes and Crystal Bowersox, and the second, in 2012, was headlined by Gary Allan.
