In honor of Veterans Day, the concert event brings the healing power of music to caregivers, families, and patients in Veterans Affairs facilities across the nation. This isn’t a one-day event—Musicians on Call and their partners are working to bring music to the bedsides of veterans throughout the month of November, according to a press release.

Veterans in the Nashville VA Medical Center got a special treat. They enjoyed a live concert event featuring HunterGirl, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, and Alex Hall. The artists performed songs and also shared stories from behind a replica of the iconic Grand Ole Opry microphone. Additionally, HunterGirl took time to visit patients before the show.

Pete Griffin, President and CEO of Musicians on Call, spoke about the concert event. “Music holds a profound ability to soothe, heal, and inspire. Through Concert for Veterans, we are able to provide these uplifting benefits to hospitalized veterans as a small token of our deep gratitude for their service,” he said in a statement. “To have so many talented artists and committed partners like Wrangler and the American Hospital Association join us for this initiative each year shows how important these brave men and women are. We are proud to be able to serve them with the healing power of music.”

The lineup for this year’s Concert for Veterans is impressive. Each performer shared songs as well as words of gratitude for the veterans. However, the event means a little more to a couple of artists on the bill. Morgan and Michael Trotter Jr. of The War and Treaty are both veterans. As a result, they’re able to give back to their brother and sisters in arms through this initiative.
