We granted a surprise wish with the help of our friends at Red Truck Brewery and Country Music Star, Logan Mize, and his team at the Red Truck Summer Concert Series.
17-year-old Hunter spent the day rehearsing and hanging out with the band for her part of singing a duet with Logan that evening, with no idea that her 'wish to have a custom made Taylor Koa guitar' was also going to be granted in front of 2,000 people. Backstage, Hunter was a little nervous but really excited as she said a few times looking out at the crowd, "I've dreamt of a moment like this since I was two years old - thank you so much!"
Showtime arrived and Logan introduced Hunter as an up and coming country artist and they performed an extended Taylor Swift number together. Hunter rocked it! The crowd loved it and then we came out to explain the extra special Make-A-Wish surprise. When Hunter saw the guitar, she dropped to the stage and the crowd went wild! None of us who witnessed this will forget the look of pure joy on Hunter's face.
