THE VALORY MUSIC CO. artist BRANTLEY GILBERT teamed up with MUSICIANS ON CALL last week, as he paid a surprise visit to veterans at NASHVILLE’s VA Hospital on VETERANS DAY (11/12).
“I have never experienced anything quite like playing for these veterans. These men and women have sacrificed their lives for our freedom ... my freedom to be able to play my music. I have so much respect for them. It was an honor to be able to spend time with them and hopefully brighten their day a little. I know it has certainly changed my life,” said GILBERT.
MUSICIANS ON CALL is an organization that brings music to patients in the hospital. Volunteer musicians go into hospitals and play for the patients. Although founded in 1999, the NASHVILLE division celebrated its 5th anniversary this year. For more information, visit www.MusiciansOnCall.org.
