Rock The Cradle, an event created by Music Row executives Connie Bradley and Troy Tomlinson to raise money for Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital’s Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, celebrated its seventh year on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at Loveless Barn in Nashville, Tenn. The event featured a special performance by American Music Awards nominee Old Dominion, who has been recognized for awards at the ACM, ACCA, AIMP and Music Row Awards this past year, and included a cocktail reception, dinner, silent and live auction for attendees. This year’s Rock The Cradle raised more than $100,000 for obstetrics care and cutting-edge technology in the Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and also provides financial assistance to those patients with urgent needs.
“This year’s event, once again, allowed the work of Saint Thomas NICU to be showcased and celebrated,” said Tomlinson. “That was clearly on display as the Reed family shared their story and served as ‘Honorary Chairs.’ OD generously gave their time and talent so that the most vulnerable among us, tiny newborns, could get the absolute best care available.”
“My baby was born and swept right into the NICU,” shares Old Dominion lead singer, Matthew Ramsey. “I know first-hand the fear and stress that comes along with that. It takes a special type of person to take care of the little ones who need extra attention, as well as comfort the families. They are truly angels. Playing Rock The Cradle was a no brainer for us. It was an honor to be able to help and give back in our own way.”https://www.countryschatter.com/2016/11/nashvilles-rock-the-cradle-raises-more-than-100000-for-saint-thomas-midtown-hospital-supporting-newborns-in-need/AwardsFundraiserNewsPress ReleaseACCA,ACM,AIMP,Brad Tursi,Clint Higham,Connie Bradley,Dale Morris,Geoff Sprung,Matthew Ramsey,Morris Higham Management,Music Row Awards,Old Dominion,Rock the Cradle,Trevor Rosen,Troy tomlinson,Whit Sellers,Will Hitchcock
