When country music star Blake Shelton leaned over to take a note from a young fan in the front row at one of his concerts, he learned something about the boy that shook him up.
“Think you’re all having a bad day? Put it in perspective, man,” Shelton told his audience in a video of his interaction with the boy.
It looks like Nashville is reporting that Wyatt Mackey and his mother Harley Mackey were given concert tickets by a kind stranger after the donor revealed how much Mackey loves Blake Shelton.
People reports that Wyatt has a condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which results in the left side of his heart being underdeveloped.
Wyatt got up on stage and Shelton knelt down to meet the boy and hugged him.
Shelton bowed as he and Wyatt sang the first chorus of the song.
“The devil went to Georgia, but he didn’t stay.” This is God’s country”, they sang together.
After a few minutes, the boy returned to his seat as the crowd cheered wildly.
“Everyone give a big hand to my friend Wyatt!” Shelton said.
Mackey shared a video of her son’s encounter with Shelton on Facebook, where it went viral. The video has been viewed more than 173,000 times.
“I don’t know if Blake Shelton will ever see this but I just want to tell him he’s amazing and he’s officially my favorite person who absolutely made Wyatt’s day, thank you so much to him and to everyone who stopped us from telling him how awesome he is. he was on stage and told her to pray for him! Definitely a night to remember!” she wrote in the description of the video.
Mackey told Music Mayhem that the song “God’s Country” brought him a lot of joy while undergoing heart surgery.
He has been waiting for a heart transplant for a year.
Wyatt carried his Spider-Man backpack with him on stage because it contains his medicine that is constantly running through his IV.
“He came home one day and he was just screaming to play ‘God’s Country,’ ‘God’s Country,’ and for a couple of years now, every time we get in the car, we have to play ‘God’s Country’ all the time,” she said. .
Mackie was moved to tears when she saw her son on stage singing his favorite song with Shelton.
“He had to do something that he really loved and wanted to do.” It’s quite a big deal,” she said.
Shelton eventually posted the video to his social media pages as well.
“This little fellow made my night. Thanks for singing ‘God’s Country’ with me Wyatt! he wrote.
