A normal Tuesday at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital turned uniqueÂ as Scotty McCreery visited to perform andÂ 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 atÂ the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, also known as the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.Â The 21 Year old American Idol performed forÂ children, their families, and the hospital staff. Along with his performance, McCreeryÂ 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.Â “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 toÂ The Tennessean).
The Grand Ole Opry Â launchedÂ Cause for Applause in celebration of their 90th Anniversary. Set up in conjunction withÂ the Opry’s 90-year milestone, the Cause For Applause initiativeÂ aims to unite fans with Country’s best.Â During the rest of 2015, the Opry willÂ support a variety of causes, which includesÂ donationsÂ this month to the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
