MCA Nashville recording artist Clare Dunn took a break from a nonstop touring and recording schedule to brighten the day of some very special Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt patients on Friday, August 9th.
The “absolutely magnetic” (Rolling Stone) singer/songwriter/producer spent the afternoon with a group of children at the hospital’s Seacrest Studio where she visited with patients, signed autographs, wore a surgical mask in solidarity with a young fan, and performed a couple of songs to the group’s delight.
“It was such an honor to spend time with these sweet kids and their families,” says Dunn. “Music is a big part of my world, and to get to share it with these children and see their eyes light up warmed my heart! I absolutely loved spending time with them, and hope I was able to bring a few hours of carefree joy to their families as well. Big thanks to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation for having me — I can’t wait to go back.”
Spent time at @ryansfoundation Seacrest Studios at @VUMCchildren. What a truly moving experience. The resilience of not only the children, but also the family members is so inspiring. Grateful to have spent a little time with these kiddos. Thanks for having me #ryanfoundation pic.twitter.com/2W90pHYwsd

Dubbed an “undeniable artistic force” by MusicRow Magazine, Dunn continues to build her autumn schedule, following a jampacked summer. The prolific songwriter will take her “masterful vocals and crushing guitar” (Miami New Times) on the road with Cody Johnson for three fall dates: October 10 (Mankato, MN), 11 (Dubuque, IA) and 12 (Sioux Falls, SD).
