Wilson took to Instagram where she expressed her gratitude for the two organizations. She expressed that, “This right here is why I do what I do… I’m happy to get to play a small part in bringing joy into these kid’s lives every time I get a chance to stop by.”

The video features footage of Lainey performing to the kids and talking about her life changing visit “Moments like today make me remember why I’ve wanted to do this, why I started doing this. It’s about using your gift for good. It makes me remember what life is truly all about,” Lainey says in the clip.

The Ryan Seacrest Foundation is a non-profit organization that works in part to inspire and expose young, in need children to the world of entertainment, essentially allowing for them to express their creativity within the comfort of their hospital room. Seacrest Foundation often holds events with artists, such as Wilson, to visit the hospitals and shine a light on child illness through music.

In an interview with the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital’s Instagram, Wilson expresses that “using your gift for the greater good” is what life is all about. It is always inspirational to see artists with such big hearts, using their talent and platform to spread awareness.

Lainey is staying busy this summer playing various headline shows, fairs and festivals. She’s also opening for Luke Combs and Eric Church on various dates. Tickets are available on Lainey’s website.

Lainey’s latest single, “Watermelon Moonshine,” is currently climbing the country charts.
