Three weeks ago, I received a phone call: How would I feel about covering the Red Carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards on behalf of Con Agra Foods and their Child Hunger Ends Here program?
A song, “Here’s Hope”, written just for the campaign was going to be performed at the ACMs, spreading the message: Child Hunger is an epidemic, but there is Hope.
I might have said ‘YES!” before the question was done being asked.
This opportunity was extraordinary for a few reasons:
- Covering a Red Carpet event has been a dream of mine for years (since I was in traditional TV)
- I would be covering it on behalf of Child Hunger Ends Here – a cause I care deeply about
- I LOVE Country Music.
So, for me? A perfect fit. I have the opportunity to do something I have always dreamed about and for a good cause.
On the Red Carpet, I interviewed more than a dozen Country Artists….one of them was Gwen Sebastian, who recently left The Voice, but has some BIG news to share:
Isn’t she phenomenal? There is so much more video to come…. interviews with Hunter Hays, Coy Bowles from the Zac Brown Band…. and SO MUCH Red Carpet Coverage. I cannot wait to share.
