Meet the Most Precious ACM Awards Correspondent
The pair were parked in the media area on behalf of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and despite being just 6 years old and 5 years old, respectively, they were as polished and charming as any of the pros. Watch the video above to see Londyn (who is fighting neuroblastoma at St. Jude) hold Jake Owen's feet to the fire until he can answer what his superpower would be.
The little girl also taught would-be Entertainer of the Year winner Urban and Male Vocalist of the Year winner Rhett how to play rock, paper, scissors, and you can see those adorable pics below. Ashley McBryde did a duet she's not sure to forget when she and Addi sang a song from The Little Mermaid together. It was all smiles from this booth at the 2019 ACM Awards, yet somehow the whole thing has us dabbing away a few tears.
St. Jude and country music go together like peanut butter and jelly, if PB&J could raise more than $800 million for a great cause. That’s the sum of fundraising from 30-plus years of Country Cares, a program that finds hundreds of radio stations plus as many artists and industry leaders coming together to fight cancer and other life-threatening childhood diseases yearly. Families like Addi’s and Londyn’s never receive a bill from St. Jude, because founder Danny Thomas believe all parents should have to worry about is helping their child live.
Taste of Country has been a proud St. Jude partner since 2014. This year’s Townsquare Media Taste of Country radiothon helped raise more than $2.2 million.
