Brad Paisley Surprises More Than 600 Vanderbilt Nurses With “Gratitunes”

Brad Paisley recently surprised more than 600 nurses at the virtual Vanderbilt 2020 State of Nursing to thank medical staffers helping to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The address was part of Vanderbilt’s ongoing recognition of National Nurses Week and 2020 being the “Year of Nurse,” which honors the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of modern nursing.

In April, numerous artists in Nashville’s music community joined to send “Gratitunes” to Vanderbilt University Medical Center staffers, through messages of encouragement and musical performances. The initiative launched March 30, National Doctors’ Day, with performances from Paisley, Dustin Lynch, Jewel, Lauren Alaina and more.

To date, over 80 artists participated in the campaign reaching over 543,672 engagements. Over 1,300 Gratitunes were dedicated by fans and 5,447 songs added to the Gratitunes Spotify playlist.
