Recap by Seacrest Studios Interns, Karleigh Holt and Isabella Calpakis
Seacrest Studios at Levine Children’s Hospital received a visit from country star, Brett Young! He is originally from Orange County, California, and was a college baseball player. However, after getting injured, he decided to take up songwriting. He now lives in Nashville, with his dog, Oscar. Patients and their family members gathered to meet Brett and hear him perform. He performed on air one of his most popular songs, “In Case You Didn’t Know,” and had patients in awe with his beautiful voice. We tested his hula hooping skills in the studio, and the 6’5” country star let his silly side come out. We asked him questions about himself- Brett told us about the blanket, “Mr. Blankie”, he had when he was younger that he couldn’t sleep without! (He actually still has that blanket!)
When asked about how to handle unexpected things that stand in the way of pursuing your dreams, he said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans. If something doesn’t work out, then there’s a reason for it.” Brett showed off his country music knowledge as he played the lyric game, requiring him to fill in the blanks. He knew every single question! He worked with another patient, making a great team. He has previously opened for Luke Bryan, and said that the two of them are friends. He ended his visit by signing autographs and taking pictures with patients and fans. Brett’s smile lit up the room, making his visit definitely one to remember. We can’t wait until he comes back to visit again!
