One 2014 Oscar winner should have mentioned a famous country singer in his thank you speech. Because without her … OK, he probably would have been noticed by someone else, but it’s still pretty cool that this celebrity started his career in a country music video.
Dierks Bentley, Tyler Farr, Florida Georgia Line and Justin Moore are a few of the celebrities that stepped up for the second and final day of the Taste of Country fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. However, each will be quick to point to the kids as the real stars. And indeed, on this day, they were.
Sara Evans has visited the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital twice -- once before she had kids, and once (this past January) after. The most recent visit changed her perspective, she tells Taste of Country.
The Swon Brothers were familiar with the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital long before competing on 'The Voice' or signing a country record deal. Zach and Colton Swon say their mom has been a longtime supporter of the children's hospital. Still, visiting there for the first time was much different than what they expected.
Time and time again, country artists reiterate that St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a happy place. Singer Leah Turner confirms that in her own experience visiting patients -- it truly is a place that's brimming with happiness.
Like so many country stars, Billy Currington remembers expecting his first St. Jude visit to be depressing -- they are treating sick kids after all, he figured. If there's one lesson to remember from Taste of Country's two-day webathon, however, it's that that couldn't be further from the truth.
Tyler Farr goes out of his way to help children -- especially the children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The 'Whiskey in My Water' singer has made it to three of the last four Country Cares seminars, forging strong relationships with patients and families each time.
In March 2010, Jennifer Bates found herself in a spot every mother can relate to. Her 2-year-old son Tyler was sick -- vomiting, low energy, dizziness, sore muscles -- and she sensed there was something very wrong that doctors weren't fixing with standard treatments. For three weeks, she worried and kept a close eye on him as she tended to her eight-month-old triplets.
