Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, will honor Lady Antebellum with the Music Heals Award at an exclusive invitation-only event on Aug. 9 in Nashville.

MOC launched an auction on Charitybuzz where one lucky winner and their guest will meet the trio and get front row seats to the show. The private event is a part of Musicians On Call’s Half A Million Moments campaign, celebrating the organization’s milestone of performing for half a million patients, families and caregivers. It will be hosted by iHeartRadio on-air personality Bobby Bones, and will feature special guest performances and appearances.
