Benevolent Hope Nation Radio Continues To Inspire Kids Of All Ages
The last few months have been jam-packed with hope, thanks to Nile Peaytt from Hope Nation Radio (HNR).
In September, they kicked off Childhood Cancer Awareness with multiple gatherings, including the annual 30 Days of Hope benefit concert featuring Nashville’s finest ‘90s songwriters. Also within the same month, The famous Wildhorse Saloon and Bridgestone Arena went gold. The following month, HNR celebrated at the Crossroads Equestrian Facility in Eagleville, Tennessee. Kids and their families got the chance to enjoy a special day filled with hay-rides, horseback riding and singing songs. The day was the quintessential example of the events HNR organizes for the kids. In October, the station also incorporated music into the healing process. HNR House Parties provide kids fighting cancer the opportunity to enjoy a concert right in their living room. As Peaytt says, “music takes over, love fills the room and cancer disappears for a while.” Through all of the amazing events, the HNR community has become a tight-knit group. Each event feels like a family reunion between those that have benefited from the support of HNR.
The next few months hold numerous events that are sure to inspire. The station will continue to choose a, “Kiddo Of The Month,” “Gold Ribbon Spotlight Artist” and “Spotlight Artist.” Each month, these three categories highlight important stories and people that have been affected by cancer. More HNR House Concerts are also in the works for the new year. Last month marked the fifth anniversary of the station and HNR is stronger than ever. The station goes above and beyond to care for those in need and bring awareness to childhood cancer, its reach continues to grow and strengthen year by year.
About Hope Nation Radio: Formed in 2013 by Nile “Big Daddy” Peaytt and Thomas Hammonds, this station plays a variety of country music, pop, rock, contemporary, Christian and gospel from signed and independent artists. This is a station anyone can listen to, including the children in the hospital; whether it be for a lengthy stay or to help pass the time while getting treatments. What was inspired by a talk “Big Daddy” had with 11-year-old Savannah Swandal at her bed side just weeks before passing away, has now evolved into spreading hope, raising awareness and inspiring others to join the fight. “We wanted to connect with these kids from all over the country, bring smiles and inspire people to get involved in their community,” says ‘Big Daddy.’ As they inspire schools, communities, businesses and individuals to help raise awareness, the Nashville and country music community has opened their arms and hearts graciously to help spread the word.
