Country Music Association Gives $3 Million To Children In Need!
There are three things that country music does better than anyone else:
- Explores all matters of the heart
- Starts the party and keeping it rockin’
- Takes care of those in our community who are in need
Once again, country music shows that it will give endlessly of itself to help those who are less fortunate or in need, and this time that generosity is being extended to the most vulnerable of our community: The children.
This week, the Country Music Association proved once again that country music is the most charitable and caring genre in the entertainment business by donating $3 MILLION DOLLARS to the Monroe Carrell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, an organization that is committed to helping critically ill and injured children, regardless of their economic status, social status, or circumstances.
The check was presented by Kix Brooks and Hillary Scott, and will be used to create a four-story expansion at the hospital. This expansion will result in 160,000 additional square feet, 80 new beds, and an entire unit dedicated to premature infants, organ transplants, critical care, and neurosurgery.
Brooks (in a press release) said of the new expansion: “Building floors means helping more children and families — locally, regionally, and around the world — and I can’t imagine anyone with a heart not embracing what is going on at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.”
What can you do today to help make a difference in the life of someone who needs a hand? Be giving. Be kind. Be country!
