Jerrod Niemann recently serenaded patients at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville to kick off the 11th Annual Weekly Bedside Performance Program for Musicians on Call Nashville. He sang his latest single, "Shinin' on Me," as part of the program, which brings live music to the bedside of patients in healthcare facilities.
Jerrod is a big supporter of Musicians on Call. He says, "You get to meet all of these wonderful children and their families. They are going through such a difficult time and I hope my music can make a difference by brightening their day."
Jerrod got a lot out of participating in the program too.
"It was such an incredible experience to perform," Jerrod explains. "All these children have definitely made a difference in my life."
Trace Adkins, Lady Antebellum, Kellie Pickler and Darius Rucker are among the stars who've participated in the Musicians on Call program in the past. For more information, go to MusiciansonCall.org.
"Shinin' on Me" is the lead single from Jerrod's new album, Free the Music, due out October 2.
