Musicians On Call Brings The Grand Ole Opry to Hospitalized Veterans with Terri Clark

Screen_Shot_2016-01-12_at_1.47.20_PMMulti-Platinum selling country star Terri Clark joined Musicians On Call (MOC) to perform for Veterans at the Nashville VA hospital last night. The visit was in partnership with the Grand Ole Opry, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary, 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. Clark serenaded Veterans with her hits including “Now That I Found You” and “No Fear” at MOC’s Bedside Performance Program, where volunteer musicians across the country have delivered the healing power of music to nearly half a million patients, families and caregivers.

“Being a part Musicians On Call for our Veterans was one of the most gratifying and joyful experiences I’ve had in my life as a musician,” said Terri Clark. “It’s easy to take for granted what we enjoy and do every day, but moments like these are what it’s really all about.  The universal language and a magical moment in time.”

“We’re so fortunate to have country music icon Terri Clark donate her time and talent to support the healing power of music for our Veterans,” said Pete Griffin, MOC President. “We’re proud to partner with the Opry to make moments like this even more special.”

Clark’s visit had her performing at the bedsides of over 35 Veterans in the Nashville VA hospital delivering the healing power of music. One patient, so moved by her performance and visit, even joined her side for several stops to sing along. To date, MOC volunteers have performed for over 23,000 Veterans and family members and climbing.

    Terri, as a physician, I’m so proud of you for doing this. You may not know just how much this means and helps these patients. Patient care isn’t only about medicine and tests, it’s about the human factor. They say laughter is the best medicine, but that’s not all. Thank you so much for doing this. Music therapy certainly has it’s place in healing.

    I am glad there are still caring people in the world. I don’t care if you are a country singer, or a broken dreamer without a penny to your name. An act of kindness goes along way .
    Terri Clark is a class act! I don’t know her personally, but hopefully she will stay true to herself. To many artist want more, sometimes there is price they pay for to much sucess.
    Why not just be yourself, humble, happy, and enjoy what you do!
    MORE IS LESS!
