Lainey Wilson has worked her way up to becoming one of the hottest names in country music right now.
She’s opening up for Luke Combs on his massive stadium tour, and will soon be opening some dates for Eric Church on his Outsiders Revival Tour, all while selling out her own shows on the strength of her incredible album, Bell Bottom Country.
But she still has time to give back to her community.
Lainey recently took some time to visit with some kids at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, stopping by the Seacrest Studios to not only speak with the children and sign autographs but also to play some tunes.
Speaking on what the visit meant to her, Lainey said it’s just as rewarding for her as it is for the children:
“Man, moments like today make me remember why I’ve wanted to do this, why I started doing this. It’s about using your gift for the good. It makes me remember what life is truly all about.
And I’m so honored and blessed to have had the opportunity to stop by here today. It’s refilled my cup. These things make me want to do better and be better because of these kiddos.”
The Seacrest Studios, a partnership between the Ryan Seacrest Foundation and various hospitals around the country, including Vanderbilt, provide patients with the opportunity to explore their creative side through radio, television, and new media, while providing them with content that they can view either in-studio or on TV in their hospital rooms.
And Lainey took full advantage of the space, performing her hit “Heart Like a Truck” for the excited patients.
You love to see these big stars giving back to their communities – and you know that Lainey loved it as much as the kids did.
