Boy got country star's guitar in Fargo; is a jam session next?


A lucky young country music fan hit the jackpot this month when he was the recipient of Lee Brice's guitar before the star walked offstage after a concert in Fargo.

But there may be another chapter to the boy's lucky streak.

On Friday – a full two weeks after the show at the Red River Valley Fair – Brice used Facebook and Twitter to ask his fans to identify the boy, adding "I want to jam with him!"

Sure enough, social media worked their magic and before long there was a response to Brice's Facebook post from Kayla Spangler (right), saying it was her son, Jacob, on the receiving end of the guitar, and she would be emailing Brice.

There's also a comment from Chris Spangler that reads: "Thanks for making our sons first concert so special! You have no idea how much getting that guitar meant to him!"

Does this mean some jammin' with Jacob is in Lee Brice's future?

Well, Brice is pretty busy these days. He was in Valparaiso, Indiana, Friday as part of his "'Til Summer's Gone" tour. And he recently announced he'll be staying on the road until late October.

Then again, he's been known to have young guests join him onstage, so stay tuned.
