Lee Brice Surprising This Military Widow Will Melt Your Heart
You already love Countryfest Headliner Lee Brice for his romantic ballads and party songs, and his heartfelt hit, "I Drive Your Truck." But now, you have a brand new, inspiring reason to fall in love with him all over again.
Ginger Gurley Gilbert Ravella lost her husband, Troy Gilbert when he was killed in action in Iraq in 2006. Before he left for deployment, Tony was forced to sell his truck. His 1992 Chevy Silverado 1500 had been in his family for 3 generations.
Ginger told Lee her story last summer and ever since then, Lee has been trying to locate that truck.
Even though it took him a really long time, he eventually found the old Chevy! He bought it, cleaned it up, and had it ready to surprise Ginger at the ACM Party for a Cause concert last week.
Ginger thought she was at the concert to receive a check for Folds of Honor, a charity that provides educational support to spouses and children of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers. And, while of course Lee did present a $40,000 donation to the organization, that's not really why he brought Ginger up on stage.
Lee surprised Ginger and her 2 sons with the gift of a lifetime! Tony's truck!
Just like in Lee's hit song, when Ginger and her 2 boys miss Dad, they can now drive his truck. That's pretty darn cool!

Isn't that the sweetest story! See, I told you you'd fall in love with him all over again!
