Scotty McCreery makes a very special visit to a Nashville area hospital

While most know Scotty McCreery for his voice, more people should take the time to learn more about his heart. The teen we met on “American Idol” and the guy with a deep voice has grown into a young man dedicated to finding more and more ways to show off that amazing heart of his.

On April 14, McCreery took some precious time off the road and spent it with the young patients at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, playing his songs, signing autographs and giving away signed toy train whistles. McCreery was also on hand to make a delivery of some special toys and toy instruments for the hospital from the Opry’s retail collection.

If that wasn’t enough, he headed to the Grand Ole Opry later that night to perform in support of the Opry’s “Cause For Applause” alongside country artists such as Florida Georgia Line, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers and Kellie Pickler. This month’s cause “Thank God For Kids” is a partnership between the Opry and the hospital — and part of the Opry’s overall mission to support nine important causes throughout 2015 as part of its 90th anniversary celebration.
