Probably doesn't get more grass-roots than this.

Suzy Bogguss and other parents were trying to figure out how to raise money for new uniforms for their kids’ marching band when a mom pointed at the country singer: “Why don’t you play a show for us?”

Voilà, Suzy Bogguss and her bandmates found themselves onstage at the Franklin (Tenn.) High School auditorium last night (April 21).

About 250 paid $25 each—$50 if you wanted in on the post-show reception—to see a full 75-minute set.

Suzy’s trumpet-playing son, Ben, sold merchandise while mom was onstage.

“I like it when I’m honestly affiliated with the philanthropy,” Suzy told CountryWeekly.com afterward. “Otherwise, sometimes I’m not as connected.”
