Warner Music Nashville artists RaeLynn and William Michael Morgan joined Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, to perform for patients and families in the cardiac and orthopedic wing of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City yesterday. The visit was in partnership with the Grand Ole Opry and its Circle Throwdown which brings impromptu performances with Opry artists and a replica of the famed six-foot Opry Circle of wood symbolizing the oak center stage at the Opry House to new locations across the country. Both artists serenaded patients during MOC’s Bedside Performance Program, where volunteer musicians across the country have delivered the healing power of music to over half a million patients, families and caregivers. The two artists also performed with the Circle Throwdown in the Infusion Center at Lenox Hill Hospital, bringing much needed joy to the patients and staff.

“Musicians On Call is a great organization that helps a lot of people because music is definitely healing for the soul,” said William Michael Morgan. “Today was a perfect example of that so thank you to Lenox Hill Hospital and MOC for having myself and RaeLynn!”

“I love being a part of Musicians On Call because I understand the healing power of music,” said RaeLynn. “Getting to spend time with patients and sharing music with them is a powerful thing.  It brings us all together and gives us as much joy as it does them, it’s a blessing really.”

“I love being a part of Musicians On Call because I understand the healing power of music and they provide an easy way for us to get involved in making people’s days, which I love doing,” said RaeLynn. “You never know what they’re going through, so if I can brighten someone’s day by singing them a song, I love that. Musicians On Call gives as much to me by participating as it does to the patients we sing for and I appreciate that.”

“We’re so fortunate to have two of Warner Music Nashville’s rising stars RaeLynn and William Michael Morgan donate their time and talent to deliver the healing power of music to patients in New York City today,” said Pete Griffin, MOC President. “It has been such an honor to continue our partnership with the Opry to make moments like these just that much more special for patients, families and caregivers.”

With her powerful new song “Love Triangle” impacting the singles and sales charts, RaeLynn has been waiting a long time to share more of her life story with her Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville debut album WildHorse, set for release on December 2. The pre-order is available now. Featured as a CMT Next Women of Country, RaeLynn is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on her debut record with her producers and co-writers, Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon and is set to open Blake Shelton’s 2016 Tour Presented By Gildan®. On the heels of Friday’s release of William Michael Morgan’s highly anticipated debut album Vinyl, the breakout star notches his first No. 1 on country airplay with the album’s lead single, “I Met A Girl.” A single that wouldn’t quit, “Girl” spent 58 weeks at radio and 49 weeks on the Mediabase/Aircheck chart, boasting the longest chart run to No. 1 in its history. The 23-year-old Vicksburg, MS native continues to hit the road throughout the fall, including a performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Thursday, October 6 to perform on Opry Country Classics and will celebrate the release of Vinyl the following evening. The singer/songwriter will kick off 2017 by joining country music stars Lee Brice and Justin Moore on the “American Made” Tour.

RaeLynn on Her Raw and Personal ‘Love Triangle’ Video: ‘I’m Not Just a Girl Who Sings Fun, Sappy Songs’

View More:

RaeLynn’s newest music video hits extremely close to home – her childhood home.

The singer’s latest tune “Love Triangle” is a raw and emotional account of what it’s like to be the child of divorced parents.

“When you’re a kid of divorce, that is your life,” RaeLynn, 22, tells PEOPLE exclusively of knowing the feeling first-hand. “You have two beds, you have two separate lives. The whole point of family is to be a unit and to do a lot of things together and it’s just not that when your parents are divorced. I think there’s been a lot of divorce songs out there, but they’ve always been about the parents. They’ve never been from the kid’s perspective.”

Capturing the pain a kid of divorce often feels was something that RaeLynn is proud to have carried into the heartbreaking clip for the song as well.

“Seeing the footage of the little girl that they shot, and how it’s all from her perspective. I don’t know, I get goose bumps every time I talk about it because you couldn’t have painted a more perfect picture of how it felt.”

But, RaeLynn says the emotional ride is worth it for her because she’s glad to be showing a deeper side of herself.

“I wanted to come out with a song that was 100 percent me, and something more raw, because I want people to know that I’m not just a girl who sings fun, sappy songs, or just a bubbly girl. I’ve been through a few things, and I know how it feels to go through tough life experiences and I wanted to show that in my music.”

The idea for the song was actually inspired by her parents still not getting along, and despite being an adult now, her still feeling caught in the middle.

“I was headed to a writing session and my mom and dad were arguing that day about really the stupidest thing,” the Voice alum says. “I got to the writing session and there were two of my dearest friends, Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, and I started venting about being a kid of divorce. I was like, ‘You know what, though? I don’t want to be in a sad mood today. Let’s just write something fun and sappy.’ Then I threw out the title, ‘Love Triangle.’ I don’t remember who said it, but they were like, ‘Well if you think about it, you’re kind of in a love triangle today.'”

And RaeLynn couldn’t be happier with the result and thinks it will provide a little bit of healing for those who can relate.

“I just think that this song is going to touch a lot of people,” she says. “My dad would pick me up every other Friday at 6, and drop me off by 6 on Sunday. Around 4 every Sunday, I remember him getting a little sad, because he wouldn’t get to see his baby for two weeks. I can’t imagine, when I become a mother, not being able to see my child for two weeks. That’s really hard, but that’s the truth, and that’s the normal for a lot of kids in divorced homes. They have to split their time and split their love. It really is not that fair, but it’s a lot of our normal and our truth.”

One thing that’s clear for RaeLynn, who married husband Joshua Davis in February, her past has better prepared her for her future.

“I know personally from growing up with my experience, divorce is not an option for me and Josh. It will never be, because I believe that love is hard work.”

RaeLynn, who wrote all but one of the songs on the album – to be released early next year – will hit the road with her Voice advisor and mentor Blake Shelton this fall.


CMA Fest Day 2 Wrap Up!

chase bryant chuck wicks

The CMA Music Festival is in full swing and day two was a scorcher. Temps easily reached the low to mid 90’s. Add that to the hundreds of thousands of sweaty bodies, the lack of shade along with the abundance of blacktop, and you’ve got a whole lotta sweaty, gross, stinky bodies willing to brave it all for a glimpse of their favorite star and some great music.

We got a late start yesterday, thanks to the heat, but still managed to take in a few shows. Riverfront rocked with performances from Chase Bryant and Thompson Square. If you’ve never seen Chase Bryant, you’re missing out, especially if you’re a guitar enthusiast because he can really tear into on. Thompson Square is adorable as ever, and their quirky style made them even more fun to watch.

Afterwards, we head over the Chevy Cruz stage to catch RaeLynn and Chuck Wicks before heading over to the HGTV Lodge to see Charles Kelley perform solo for fans. RaeLynn is adorable, and we can’t wait to see what music she’ll come up with next. Chuck Wicks, fresh from the Iron Man, has a great relationship with the crowd, looking at fans and getting personal with all those in eyesight.

The nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium were a showcase of unique talent. Frankie Ballard ripped through the National Anthem via electric guitar solo before iconic Clint Black took the stage to perform hits and new music. Chris Stapleton proved why he’s Male Vocalist of the year, and rightly so. His low-key set had the crowd on their feet singing along to every word. Sam Hunt gave a show that I’m certain was fueled by an energy drink. He belted out hits like “House Party” and “Leave the Night On” while running around the massive stage and getting personal with the fans in the front. Eric Church, always a favorite, performed a much more understated set than years past, that was much too brief. Before bringing out legend Hank Williams Jr., Chris Janson got the crowd ready to party with “Buy Me a Boat” and Justin Moore performing “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” Hank partied hard and brought Chris Janson back out, showing the younger fans who Bocephus really is.Carrie Underwood closed out the show with a rocking set that included “Smoke Break,” “Church Bells” and more!
