Sara Evans, Sam Hunt and More Design Holiday Sweaters for Good Cause
Sara Evans, Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line are among a list of artists who have designed holiday sweaters to benefit a good cause. The three country artists, as well as a number of other acts, now have their designs for sale, with proceeds going to Musicians on Call.
Fans can visit the Musicians on Call website to see and purchase Evans, Hunt and FGL's designs, all of which are available for $35. Evans' offering is a green sweater with a "A Little Bit Stronger" bottle of wine and full wine glass on the front; Hunt's features a bear in a Santa suit holding up a boombox a la Lloyd Dobler's famous front-lawn serenade in Say Anything; and Florida Georgia Line's design features Santa holding a bottle of the duo's Old Camp Whiskey, along with the words "Keep Your Spirits High."
Part of the Musicians on Call Deck the Halls Campaign, the festive frocks were also designed by pop group DNCE, hip-hop artist Trey Songz, holiday supergroup Band of Merrymakers and more. Proceeds from the holiday sweaters will go specifically to MoC's Bedside Performance Program, through which musician volunteers visit hospitals to perform for patients.
“This holiday season, we have so much to be thankful for, and at Musicians on Call, we are most grateful for our incredible volunteers and supporters, and the patients we have the privilege of performing for, " says Pete Griffin, Musicians on Call's president, in a press release. “With the funds raised from our Deck the Halls Campaign, we can bring more bedside performances to patients during the holidays and throughout the year.”
Founded in 1999, Musicians on Call aims to bring live and recorded music to patients in healthcare facilities across the nation. To date, volunteers have performed for half a million people, delivering live, in-room performances to those undergoing treatments. In August, MoC honored Lady Antebellum with their Music Heals Award, in recognition of the country trio's support of the organization.
