Prior to his June 19 performance at the Buckeye Country Superfest in Ohio, Randy Houser awarded a decked out new truck to a U.S. military veteran as a “thank you” for his service. The Chevrolet Colorado was outfitted with more than $50,000 in tailgating and grilling items. The service member and his family also received free groceries for a year. Houser has partnered with Operation Homefront and Eckrich to honor U.S. military families in this way since 2014.

Not to be outdone in the charitable causes department, Toby Keith raised more than $1.1 million during his 13th annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic earlier this month in Oklahoma. The proceeds fund the Toby Keith Foundation’s OK Kids Korral, an Oklahoma City facility where families can stay when their child is receiving cancer treatments locally.
