Lady Antebellum made two little girls’ wishes come true in a heartwarming way during the Atlanta stop of its Wheels Up 2015 Tour.
On July 18, the group brought out two very special guests to join them onstage. Mallory, a three-year-old heart transplant survivor, and her sister Madison, got Lady Antebellum’s attention after their parents posted a video of the girls performing the band’s song, “Compass”.
The track helped the family get through Mallory’s health struggles and their biggest wish was to get the two girls onstage with one of their favorite country groups. Thanks to Lady Antebellum, those big dreams became reality.
“We have a few special guests joining us on stage right now,” Hilary Scott announced to the audience. “The first two are two of the most beautiful, adorable little girls I have ever seen in my life, with the most inspiring story.”
Mallory and Madison strode onto the stage in matching cowboy boots as the band played the girls’ favorite song. Though Mallory was a bit nervous at first, she eventually joined her sister in singing along happily and soaked in the exciting moment.
Hunter Hayes, who opened for Lady Antebellum that night, also joined in on mandolin.
“That was awesome. So awesome,” Scott said happily after the performance, obviously affected by the young girl’s inspiring story.
