Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee raised some $250,000 tonight at its third annual “Stars For Wishes” event at Gaylord Opryland Hotel. Hosted by TV personality Melissa Rycroft, the evening was filled with heartfelt performances by Gary Allan, “Stars For Wishes” founder Jonathan Cain (Journey), Scotty McCreery and Street Corner Symphony.

“We’re incredibly grateful for all of the support and donations that have helped us surpass our ‘Stars For Wishes’ goals year,” said President and CEO, Beth Torres. “Thank you for a beautiful evening and for allowing us to continue to fulfill our mission of granting wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.”

Over 600 guests began their evening with a Make-A-Wish silent auction including hundreds of items donated by individuals and local organizations. Guests then enjoyed a four-course meal created by renowned local chefs, Hal Holden-Bache of Lockeland Table, Tandy Wilson of City House and Tyler Brown of the Capitol Grille.

The highlight of the evening involved 12 year-old Wish Kid Jessica as she invited fellow Wish Kid, Makaylan and her family onstage. The crowd erupted as six year-old Makaylan, who has been diagnosed with a Wilms tumor, learned her wish has been granted: she’ll soon take a trip to Disney World with her family.

After dinner, the attendees were treated to a live auction and additional musical performances. Jonathan Cain closed out the evening by presenting a check to Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee from the funds he was able to raise on tour with Journey in 2014. Overall, the event raised more than $250,000 thanks to the generous supporters and sponsors, including a $30,000 matching donation from local businessman, Jeff Lynch at Pita Pit.

The Late Party, hosted by the Young Leaders Board of Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee was also held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel following the event.

Scotty McCreery Takes CMT Behind the Scenes

Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery invited “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” to join him in Fort Worth, Texas last weekend for a behind-the-scenes look at his performance at the legendary Billy Bob’s Texas, the World’s Largest Honky-Tonk. CMT’s cameras captured a day in the life of the dynamic singer/songwriter as he rehearsed at soundcheck, hung out with his band members, met with his fans, performed live in concert, and much more.

Catch this backstage glimpse into McCreery’s life-on-the-road during “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” THIS weekend when the show airs on today (Jan. 17) and Sunday (Jan. 18), at 9:00 AM ET / 8:00 AM CT on both days.

McCreery recently scored his second consecutive Top 10 hit, “Feelin’ It” from his sophomore album See You Tonight, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. That album’s title song, a top 10 hit co-written by the singer, was one of three singles from the “American Idol” champion that were recently certified Platinum by the RIAA in the same week (the other two being “The Trouble with Girls” and “I Love You This Big” from his Platinum-certified first album Clear as Day, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart). The ACM, CMT Music, ACA, and ICM Award winner was recently ranked No. 2 on Country Weekly’s “2014 Country’s Sexiest Men Poll.” McCreery returns to the road next week when he performs in Charlottesville, VA on Jan. 23; Emporia, VA on Jan. 24; and Newport News, VA on Jan. 25th.
