Country artists are always looking for ways to expand on their stardom, but not in the way most artists do. Instead, country artists are the kind of people with hearts that are always looking for ways to help those that are hurting — especially when it comes to their younger fans.
One of these special young people is named Kinsee. A 14-year-old that overcame leukemia after being diagnosed with the dreaded disease when she was just eight years old, Kinsee was featured on the recent “CMA Country Christmas” special meeting two of her favorite country music artists.
Thomas Rhett and Brett Eldredge met with the self-proclaimed country music fan, singing the Christmas classic “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” for Kinsee and her mom. Kinsee has been a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since she was eight years old.
“Our industry, artists, and country radio have a strong connection to St. Jude, and we are honored to provide this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Kinsee while we also bring important recognition to the Hospital,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer in a recent press release. “Kinsee’s recovery is something we can all celebrate, because she represents the hope and happy ending we desire for all children – especially during the holidays.”
