On March 18, when Ryan Seacrest opened up his brand-new Seacrest Studios in Nashville, Tenn., a bob-headed country-turned pop star wearing a blue dress showed up.
It was Taylor Swift.
Together the “Wildest Dreams” singer and the “American Idol” host launched the new recording studio as their way of making ill kids’ dreams come true. Now, home to those who stay at Nashville’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, the new multimedia broadcast facility – built by the Ryan Seacrest Foundation – is the host’s 10th studio thus far!
“The key to these [studios] is the life that they have,” said Ryan about the youngsters. “You know, each and every day, each and every week. Part of that electricity is the people that might come through, and see you guys, and the people that you might get to meet.”
While this isn’t the first time Taylor delighted new studio patients with Ryan, Nashville’s one for the books.
“The fact that this is happening in Nashville. Can you imagine the artists and the songwriters and the entertainers who are going to be stopping by the hospital,” added Taylor.
Joining the kids to cut the celebratory ribbon together, both stars also posted about the event on social media. Ryan took to Twitter to showcase the first recording, saying “First broadcast in the books! #Seacreststudios 10 is officially up and running in Nashville at @VUMCchildren.”
