William Clark Green and Brady Black, fiddle player for Randy Rogers Band, surprised their friend and fellow musician Josh Abbott with a gift he'll never forget.

Earlier this year, Abbott's father passed away just days after suffering a stroke. Understandably, Abbott canceled shows throughout the entire ordeal, so that he could spend some time with his family. Along with the emotional heartache that comes with such a loss, the family had some huge bills to pay. Abbott's mom was stuck with the loss of her husband along with medical and funeral costs.

This week, Green and Black surprised Abbott with a touching (and very generous) gift: $20,000 to cover his late father's medical and funeral bills. That's when friends become family.

"Josh has done more for me in the music business for me than anyone. I've been trying for nine years to figure out how to pay him back," Geen said in the video. "Tonight the proceeds are going to Josh's mom to help them out with what they went through this year."
