Old Dominion Supports Rock The Cradle, Hats Off For High Hopes Charities
Rock The Cradle, an event created by Music Row executives Connie Bradley and Troy Tomlinson to raise money for Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital’s Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, celebrated its seventh year on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at Loveless Barn in Nashville, Tenn. The event featured a special performance by American Music Awards nominee Old Dominion, and included a cocktail reception, dinner, silent and live auction for attendees.
This year’s Rock The Cradle raised more than $100,000 for obstetrics care and cutting-edge technology in the Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and also provides financial assistance to those patients with urgent needs.
“My baby was born and swept right into the NICU,” shares Old Dominion lead singer, Matthew Ramsey. “I know first-hand the fear and stress that comes along with that. It takes a special type of person to take care of the little ones who need extra attention, as well as comfort the families. They are truly angels. Playing Rock The Cradle was a no brainer for us. It was an honor to be able to help and give back in our own way.”
Old Dominion’s Trevor Rosen and Matthew Ramsey also performed at the benefit concert Hats Off For High Hopes last night (Nov. 13) at the Ryman Auditorium. Joining them were hitmakers including Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Tim Nichols, Matt Jenkins, Marv Green and Lee Thomas Miller.
