Country music veteran Deborah Allen helped spread holiday cheer to children in need this year by stopping by the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, where she read her book, The Loneliest Christmas Tree, and donated 90 ukuleles.
While there, Deborah made a special surprise presentation of 90 ukuleles to the Children's Music Department. Children who are battling illnesses will learn to play them while staying in the hospital. This has a special Murfreesboro connection, as construction of the new Vanderbilt Children's Hospital on Garrison Drive, across from Murfreesboro Medical Clinic, is nearing completion.
