Jimmy Wayne, the Opry, & Musicians On Call Honor Veterans


This Veterans Day, Jimmy Wayne, one of the most philanthropic individuals to ever walk the Earth (literally to an extent!), visited United States veterans with Musicians On Call, a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.

The singer-songwriter performed for veterans at the Nashville Veterans Affairs, entertaining our heroes with hits such as “Sara Smile” and “Do You Believe Me Now”. With Jimmy also came representatives from the Grand Ole Opry, providing a “Circle Throwdown” (a wooden circle replica) to make the experience that much more special for the veterans.

Musicians On Call President, Pete Griffin, stated:

Serving our nation’s service men and women on Veterans Day is a privilege and we’re thrilled to make it even more special with this Grand Ole Opry Circle Throwdown partnership. For Musicians On Call however, Veterans Day is every day and I’m proud that the Nashville VA is just one of the many facilities nationwide where our volunteers deliver the healing power of music to military and Veterans on a weekly basis. To date, our amazing volunteers have performed for over 23,000 Veterans and family members.

This marked the first event in a Musicians On Call and Opry partnership.

Ty Herndon, Andy Griggs, & Jamie O’Neal announce 2015 tour

Well dang. I was hoping after Ty Herndon made his brave announcement on Thursday that he’s gay, he’d disappear and then come back in a year or so with the most amazing country album ever recorded (hey, it could happen) and he’d officially become the first openly gay country mega-star. Turns out he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
