Brantley Gilbert and Martina McBride Perform for Hospital Patients

Country rocker Brantley Gilbert spent his Veterans Day sharing music and visiting with men and women who have served in the United States armed forces. Brantley paused his headlining Hell on Wheels Tour to join up with Musicians on Call (MOC) and spend the morning with the veterans at Nashville’s VA Hospital.

“These men and women have sacrificed their lives for our freedom . . . my freedom to be able to play my music,” said Brantley. “I have so much respect for them.”

The Nashville branch of MOC also recently celebrated its fifth anniversary with a special concert from superstar Martina McBride. Fans were treated to an exclusive set that mixed hits and album cuts, and one lucky silent auction winner got the chance to sing “This One’s for the Girls” onstage with Martina. In total, the event raised over $35,000 for the cause.

Since it was created in 1999, Musicians on Call has brought volunteers like Brantley and Martina to more than 350,000 hospital patients nationwide. Check out a video of Brantley’s visit below.
