NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Inspired by her original holiday single “My Christmas Wish for You,” songstress Sandra Lynn spreads Christmas cheer to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville. For a list of ways to support Nashville’s Ronald McDonald House this holiday season, click HERE. “Getting to tour Nashville’s Ronald McDonald House this week and see all the incredible ways this organization helps support families with a home away from home while they’re children are receiving critical medical care is absolutely touching and inspiring. I cannot thank everyone enough that donated towards RMH’s ‘Holiday Wish List’ this year, in hopefully helping to make Christmas just a little bit brighter for these families,” expressed Lynn. Written by legendary, GRAMMY®-winning songwriters Linda Thompson (“Grown Up Christmas List,” “I Have Nothing”) and Richard Marx (“Right Here Waiting,” “Now and Forever”), the Christmas song’s hopeful message resonates with the organization’s mission to provide a home-away-from-home for families of critically ill children receiving inpatient or outpatient medical care at Nashville area hospitals. On Monday, Dec. 9, Lynn returned to Song Suffragettes at the Listening Room Cafe for a special evening supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville. The powerhouse vocalist also performed “My Christmas Wish for You” at this year’s Nashville Christmas Parade, benefiting Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, which houses Nashville’s first Ronald McDonald Family Room where families and friends of seriously ill children can enjoy a break from corridors and waiting rooms. For a list of air dates and times of the parade broadcast, click HERE. The powerhouse vocalist debuted “My Christmas Wish for You” live last year at the historic Ryman Auditorium during the annual Christmas 4 Kids Concert and also performed it at her alma mater Pepperdine University’s Christmas concert with a live orchestra. The video, shot and directed by Tucker/Hess Productions using the California native’s real family footage, premiered on Country Rebel and aired on CMT. GRAMMY®-winning engineer/producer Ben Fowler produced “My Christmas Wish for You” along with Lynn’s 2019 releases “Lose the War,” “Am I Just Dreaming” and “I Think of You.” The singles, which received national attention from outlets including Billboard, Parade and CMT, continued the second chapter of the relationship chronicle that Lynn kicked off with her debut Billboard Country Album Fight last year.

WALKER HAYES DONATES $10,000 to HOPE INTERNATIONAL THROUGH HIS BE A CRAIG FUND Wednesday, November 4th, 2019 – in honor of Giving Tuesday, Walker Hayes played to a packed house at the Listening Room Cafe last night, with 100% of the proceeds going to HOPE International, via Walker’s Be A Craig Fund. In addition to proceeds from the show, The Be A Craig Fund donated a total of $10,000 to HOPE International – an organization that invests in the dreams of families in the world’s underserved communities through services, and loans that restore dignity and break the cycle of poverty. Walker Hayes gets asked all the time if the character, Craig, from his song of the same name is a real person. As the song highlights, Walker and his family were going through a tough time. Walker’s career wasn’t moving like he wanted it to and he was feeling the pressures of providing for his 6 children and wife, Laney. One day, at church, a man named Craig noticed that the Hayes family was piled into a small car that didn’t have enough seats for all of them. The next day, Craig showed up with the keys and title to a new minivan and handed them to Walker. Craig’s kindness meant that the family would have a vehicle big enough for all of the Hayes children to have a seatbelt. That incredible gesture sparked Walker to write the song, “Craig,” and inspired him to create the Be A Craig Fund as a way to pay it forward to the next one in line who needs a hand. This giving Tuesday, Walker payed it forward by hosting this concert at The Listening Room, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting HOPE International via the Be A Craig Fund. Walker hopes the Be A Craig Fund will encourage others to seek out opportunities to help those who may need a little extra love. Learn more about the Be A Craig Fund HERE.

If ever there was a time for a “snapsot” of our live performances, it would be the 30th anniversary of my first album release.
