ABC/Dick Clark ProductionsLuke Bryan made a surprise appearance at Charlie Daniels‘ annual Scholarship for Heroes Event at Nashville’s Lipscomb University Tuesday night. The show raises money to provide scholarships and other education opportunities for veterans.

Luke told the crowd, “The sacrifices these veterans and their families have made help keep our country free.  We should take care of them in whatever ways that we can, and that includes a good college education.”

Kellie Pickler, Clint Black and Lee Greenwood also performed at the fundraiser. For more information, go to
