During this year’s CMA Country Christmas TV special on ABC, the two country stars and tour mates organized a very special meeting for fourteen-year-old Kenzie. At just eight years old, Kenzie began treatment at St. Jude’s Cancer Research hospital after being diagnosed with leukemia.
Thanks to the incredible efforts by doctors, Kenzie is now cancer-free. To celebrate the end of Kenzie’s brave battle, the Country Music Association, Eldredge and Rhett organized a special meeting with the excited young fan.
Kenzie hugged the two country stars before the teen unleashed a list of twenty questions on the pair. When she asked if either artist had advice for her in the future, Eldredge provided a sweet and simple answer. “Keep being you,” he told her. “You’re awesome, really.”
After presenting Kenzie with a basket full of merch from both artists, they serenaded her with a snappy acoustic rendition of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
“Oh my gosh, I can’t believe i just met y’all,” Kenzie said happily. “I’m so excited right now!”
Eldredge and Rhett are currently on the road, co-headlining the CMT Suits and Boots Tour. The pair will stop in Kalamazoo, Mich. and Toledo, Ohio before wrapping up their joint tour in Chicago, Ill. on Dec. 11.
