Chris Stapleton is thanking our armed forces this Fourth of July by performing a special concert for military and their families in North Carolina.

Stapleton will travel to Fort Bragg for a special holiday performance, which will also feature appearances by Cheap Trick and Natalie Stovall and The Drive. The concert is part of a special summer campaign from Budweiser, which included the beer company temporarily changing its name to “America.”

The country star will present a check to Folds of Honor, an organization that provides scholarships to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service. The amount will come from a portion of the total nationwide sales of Budweiser’s “America” branded cans and bottles in the week proceeding the Fourth of July. The company has pledged to give up to $1 million in total to the organization.

If you can’t be in attendance for this special Fourth of July performance, you have plenty more chances to see Stapleton out on the road this year. Over the next few months, he’ll perform a number of headlining shows before touring alongside Luke Bryan and Hank Williams Jr. Stapleton has also been tapped to open for Guns N’ Roses during their stop in Nashville next month.
