Musicians on Call Honors Lady Antebellum With Music Heals Award
Musicians on Call honored Lady Antebellum on Tuesday night (Aug. 9) at a special benefit in Nashville. The country trio received the organization's Music Heals Award -- and the event itself raised more than $100,000 for the organization.
Hosted by Bobby Bones, the benefit featured performances from Lindsay Ell, Hunter Hayes and Eric Paslay, who each played some of their favorite Lady A songs. The event was part of Musicians on Call's Half a Million Moments campaign, which celebrates that, as part of Musicians on Call, artists have performed for half a million patients, families and caregivers.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our milestone of reaching half a million patients, families and caregivers in hospitals than a night like this, with our greatest supporters and champions,” says Pete Griffin, Musicians on Call's president, in a press release. “Charles [Kelley], Dave [Haywood] and Hillary [Scott] of Lady A have been huge supporters of our program personally, and their music has been a staple at our Bedside Performance Programs, always delivering the healing power of music to the patients who hear them.”
Musicians on Call is a non-profit organization that brings music to patients in healthcare facilities. Their goal is to share the healing power of music with those that need it most, right at their bedsides.
“Music is so universal and has so much power," says Scott in a release. "We’ve been able to share our love of music and experience firsthand how it touches people. It's really special to see music help people get through really tough times, so we're truly honored to be a part of what Musicians on Call is doing and receive the Music Heals Award."
Following their self-imposed hiatus, Lady Antebellum are touring this summer and, according to Scott, "in exploratory mode" for their next album.
