Lee Brice came to the aid of families in his home state who were victims of recent flooding.
He raised $10,000 at three shows in South Carolina in the fall and donated it to a family who was impacted in his hometown of Sumpter. An additional 10 grand was donated by the Red Cross for wider relief efforts.
Lee says, "I'm grateful for the opportunity to step in and help, even in a small way. So many people were impacted and are still recovering from immense water damage to their homes and property."
Lee kicks off his Life Off My Years tour in February.
A KENNY CHESNEY SHOW COULD SAVE A LIFE?
A Kenny Chesney concert could save somebody's life -- literally.
25 fans who attended Kenny's tour last summer have been identified as positive bone marrow donors for patients suffering from blood cancers across the world.
He teamed up with Love Hope Strength Foundation’s Get on the List campaign, which tested willing fans at shows by taking a swab sample from their mouths. Kenny says, “It seemed not only so simple, but the kind of thing the No Shoes Nation is all about. Give back to others, help where you can, live to the fullest and make a difference. I can’t believe they’ve found 25 matches, but I couldn’t be prouder for the fans who come out and live these songs with us.”
Kenny's next trek, the Spread the Love tour, kicks off on April 23rd in Auburn, Alabama.
KENNY ROGERS: A BIG FAN OF "THE DONALD"
Kenny Rogers says he really likes Donald Trump.
In an interview with Britain's Guardian, the country-pop legend veered toward politics.
While not formally endorsing the outspoken Republican presidential contender, Rogers says, "I really like him. I think his problem is that he says what everyone wants to hear, but he doesn’t say it well. I love what he says, I have to admit... He can be president and not owe anybody anything; he’s one of the few people has the money to do it, and has the guts to do it... He believes everything he says: Whether he’s right or not, he says what everybody fears."
But Kenny adds that other family members don't share his opinion. His "older sons laugh at me when I tell them that. They are Democrats that live in California -- there’s no hope for them. They’ll vote for Hillary no matter what she does." But he doesn't want to burn bridges with the leading Democratic candidate. "She’s a friend of mine, I’m not trashing her."
BLAKE AND GWEN: KISSES AND CAMO
If you needed further proof that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are crazy about each other, check out a photo that showed up on Gwen's Twitter feed. Both of them are dressed in camouflage, presumably on a hunting trip, when Blake covers her cheek with rapid-fire kisses.
The new-ish couple took a big step in their relationship recently -- they met each other's parents.
A man in China obviously doesn't travel very often and clearly has no idea what to do at airport security.
Security agents told the man to place his bags and the contents of his pockets onto the conveyor belt to go through the X-ray machine. Agents then watched stunned as the man placed his bag through the machine and then climbed up onto the belt and tried to squeeze himself through the X-ray machine. A staff member had to rush over to pull the man out.
This is how all divorces should go. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck will spend the holidays together for the sake of their kids.
Christmas morning they will all be together to open presents. Ben and Jen want every Christmas to be a time of joy and family. They want their kids’ childhood memories to still be good.
The couple have three children ranging in age from three to ten. They announced their split this summer amid rumors that Ben had slept with their nanny.
NICOLAS CAGE: SKULLDUGGERY
You can't make this stuff up. Nicolas Cage has agreed to give back a rare dinosaur skull after learning it was stolen.
According to TMZ, Nic won the Tyrannosaurus skull in an auction in 2007, outbidding Leonardo DiCaprio. But it turns out that it actually belongs to the Mongolian government. And after years of investigation, authorities connected the dots. Cage didn't put up any resistance once he got the bad news.
Nic isn't suspected of any wrongdoing -- he thought his purchase was legit. But law enforcement is still working to track down the person who smuggled the skull into the U.S.
BLAKE & GWEN: MEET THE PARENTS
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have taken an important leap in their relationship -- they've met each others parents.
Sources tell People that Blake brought Gwen to meet his mom Dorothy while they were at his home in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. And back in California, Blake helped Gwen's dad Dennis with some things around his house.
By all reports, all the meetings went great.
ORLANDO BLOOM: KICKED OUT OF INDIA
Orlando Bloom visited India over the weekend, but his stay was brief because the country kicked him out.
The actor traveled to India where he was supposed to promote tourism in the country, but upon arriving in Delhi on Saturday, he was told that he did not have valid visa and was deported. Bloom had applied for an e-visa last month and thought it had been approved, however his application was actually rejected and he was deported back to Britain just a few hours after arriving. But then the following day, India's External Affairs Minister intervened and granted Bloom a legal visa and Bloom got back on a flight to India and this time was allowed to stay.
KIM KARDASHIAN: BREAKS THE INTERNET....AGAIN.
Kim Kardashian has broken the Internet for a second time.
During yesterday's launch of her Kimoji alphabet, Apple’s App Store could barely handle the traffic.
Kim tweeted "Apple, I'm so sorry I broke your App Store!” Followed by “I can't believe so many people downloaded my Kimoji app that it affected the entire App store!”
The Kimoji is a Kardashian spin on emojis that reflect the family’s signature style.
Naturally, Apple techs would never allow the company to crack under Kim’s big butt emoji. Yes, that one exists, as does the waist trainer emoji, and the selfie emoji.
CHELSEA CLINTON: PREGNANT AGAIN:
Regardless of whether Hillary Clinton wins the Democratic nomination, she'll have something to celebrate this summer. Her daughter Chelsea Clinton is pregnant with her second child.
She made the announcement today (Monday) tweeting a photo of her 14-month-old daughter Charlotte reading a page from a book that said: "Big sisters are the best." Chelsea wrote, "Next summer, Charlotte is going to be a big sister! Feeling very blessed & grateful this holiday season." The Democratic National Convention takes place in late July.
After the big announcement, Hillary tweeted at her daughter: "Your dad and I could not be happier for you, Marc, and Charlotte. We’re so excited to meet our second grandchild!"
