A normal Tuesday at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital turned unique as Scotty McCreery visited to perform and connect with some young fans.

Grand Ole Opry member, Scotty McCreery, who headlined the Opry on April 16, made a special appearance earlier that Tuesday at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, also known as the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. The 21 Year old American Idol performed for children, their families, and the hospital staff. Along with his performance, McCreery took pictures and talked with many of the children and their families during his visit.

Everyone appeared to have a great time, including McCreery, who made the most of his trip. “I try and have my spirits high and be a bright light, if I can, to those kids who are going through tough times,” he said (according to The Tennessean).

The Grand Ole Opry  launched Cause for Applause in celebration of their 90th Anniversary. Set up in conjunction with the Opry’s 90-year milestone, the Cause For Applause initiative aims to unite fans with Country’s best. During the rest of 2015, the Opry will support a variety of causes, which includes donations this month to the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
