Seacrest Studios was rocking when singer-songwriter Sam Hunt dropped by to meet some kids and sing one of his hit songs at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Armed with his guitar, he jammed out to his hit song “Leave the Night On” for a live studio audience and everyone watching in their rooms.
We learned a lot about Sam when several patients got the opportunity to interview him. Sam told Timmy he first started playing music in college when he would play guitar and sing for his roommates. Micah asked about Sam’s football career at UAB (University of Alabama at Birmingham). And Bailey and Sam bonded over a shared love for Chick-fil-A. We also learned Sam has two pets – a cat, Dandelion, and a new kitten named Sebastian. Before Sam left, he encouraged all of the children to stay strong. “I really admire you for being strong and for smiling so much,” Sam said. “And I'm really happy and excited to be with you guys today. Hopefully in the future I'll get a chance to come by and say hello again.” Thanks for stopping by Seacrest Studios in Dallas, Sam! It was so special for our patients to meet you and to get an exclusive live performance! Come back any time!
