During his free performance, Smith will match up to $1,000 in donations and Big Machine Label Group’s Music Has Value will make a $1,000 contribution. To give, simply text ‘Payton’ to 51555 to receive a link to donate. All donations made to VOLthon will stay in the community, benefiting patients receiving care at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
A student-run organization at the University of Tennessee, VOLthon raises money for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Last year, VOLthon raised more than $152,000 for Children’s Hospital, ending the fundraising campaign in February 2020 with a live dance party. This is the first time VOLthon will host their main event virtually, allowing for students to participate while complying with COVID-19 restrictions.
“Raising money for Children’s Hospital means more to me than most people realize,” expresses Payton. “Children’s Hospital of New Orleans saved my younger brother Zachary’s life. His illness led to quadruple amputations and that meant many trips to the Children’s Hospital as a kid. The impact that had helped me understand how much this place saves lives and changes lives. Any opportunity to give, support and highlight what this place means to children and families, I’m all in.”
Smith is releasing his new single, “This Ain’t That Song” on February 26 via Big Machine Records.
