NASHVILLE, Tn - - The biggest country group of the past decade held a very special concert Wednesday morning. Rascal Flatts had their annual Halloween party at Monroe Carell Junior Children's Hospital. They are used to performing in  massive arenas, but this room is their favorite to sing in.  "It's part of our year and one of the biggest days we look forwad to." says Gary LeVox

Here at Children's Hospital the words to songs like "Broken Road"  really hit home, because with every little cast and every tiny IV, there is  a heartbreaking story

"She was born at 15.7 ounces. She still has trouble gaining weight so we are getting a g tube put in place" says Kristen Moser.

Kristen and her husband Tony are here with their 2 year old Lydia, who is all too familar with hospitals. "This gives us a break from poking, needles and blood pressure. We are honored and grateful" she says.

Anthony and Christina Scott were front and center and also eager for a break. They have been at children's with their 8 year old daughter Kassidy for two weeks now. "I've been in her room since Saturday. So it's nice to be out of the room and cheered her up too" says Christina.

The Flatts performance was extra special to them because "I Won't Let Go " is Christina and Kassidy's special song. "To think they sang her song to her was amazing. I never knew people would do somethign like that. It was so great."

From Spider Man sitting on the front row, to the tiny lady bug in the back, The Flatts say seeing each sick child makes them feel grateful.
"We all have kids so you can;t help but look out and go to rooms and wonder what if it was your baby." says Joe Don Rooney.

When Glenda Hunter looks around she feels the same way. Her granddaughter Maddie is here because of a severe broken arm. "When I crashed I felt like my arm was over here, but it was really on the other side and it really hurt" says Maddie.

Minor in comparison to those sitting around them, but this moment is still just as special. "She has been in so much pain and been so sad. To see her out of the room and happy and sitting up is so uplifting" says her mom.

After the concert The Flatts went to individual rooms to visit kids too sick to leave their rooms.
Make sure and be on the lookout because they have a new single out in a couple weeks.
