Country singer Lee Brice made the donation with a note saying, “Y’all will be in my prayers.”

Brice was Trent’s favorite musician, according to her brother, Trenten Scott.
Scott reached out to the country star on Twitter after his sister’s death. Brice privately messaged Scott soon after, asking how he could help, so Scott said he sent him a link to the online collection.
The page has raised more than $3,000 from dozens of people, including Brice.
All money collected, according to Scott, will go toward funeral expenses and the care of Trent’s six-month-old son.
“Our fans treat us so well,” Brice said. “We love them. I felt like I was part of their family and I wanted to help — just like I’d help my own family.”
“(Brice’s donation) had a huge impact,” Scott said. “That much money really helped me and my family out. I was very surprised. I have a bunch of respect for him. He’s a great person.”
The country star, known best for his songs “A Woman Like You,” “I Don’t Dance” and “Hard to Love,” said, “My fans are like family, so, being concerned, I checked out the link.”
