Why Don’t We was “in the limelight” at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt when the popular band made a holiday stop at Seacrest Studios! The 5-member group, originating out of Los Angeles, brought so much fun to the crowd gathered in the studio that everyone there quickly joined the band’s fan group, “Limelights!”
Daniel Seavey, Jack Avery, Corbyn Besson, Zach Herron, and Jonah Marais talked about their success, their legion of fans, and the fact that they still aren’t used to girls crying when they meet the Fab Five.
WDW, as they are often called, talked about life on the road – everything from “the junk bunk” to getting along with each other. We couldn’t let the title of their hit song, 8 Letters, go by without some explanation! All five said that the title is up for interpretation. Some think the 8 letters could mean “I Love You.” Others suggested the eight letters could stand for…SEACREST!
To wrap up a great visit in the studio, the boys competed against each other in a race to take all of the tissues out of a box – one by one – with only one hand! This was just a nod to all the tears that have been shed when fans see them in person, or listen to their music. It gives us all the feels! Thanks to Why Don’t We for continuing to be a source of encouragement at Seacrest Studios! We look forward to having you back soon and we’ll be watching you on your 8 Letters Tour starting in 2019!
