This Fourth of July, Chris Stapleton not only will play for members of the armed forces and their families at the most-populated military post in the country, he’ll also help send some of them to school. Chris is teaming up with Budweiser to give up to a million dollars in educational support to the spouses and children of fallen and disabled soldiers.  Chris will make the donation during his Independence Day show in North Carolina.

Last week’s concert featuring Cole Swindell, Billy Currington, Michael Ray, Maddie and Tae and more at Orlando’s CFE Arena raised more than $250,000 for the OneOrlando Fund, to help victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

Look for country newcomer Maren Morris on CBS News Sunday Morning.  Maren was interviewed for a segment on the show that will trace her career from her beginnings in Texas through the gold-selling, top-ten success of her debut hit.  You can catch Maren this Sunday starting at 9 a.m. ET.
