Country music star Scotty McCreery turns 22 today and in lieu of gifts, he is asking fans to donate to a worthy cause.
His fan club president, Sharon Eaves, passed away recently and he is encouraging family, friends, and fans to donate to a cause that was near and dear to her heart, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“I have many blessings in my life and I don’t need ‘things’ to celebrate my birthday,” McCreery said on his website. “But I miss my friend Sharon, who would have had a birthday just yesterday if she was still with us. I’d love to see my fans honor her and continue her great work with St. Jude.”
Eaves was a music industry veteran who worked with many country music artists. She was a longtime member of St. Jude’s Music Industry Advisory Council.
He is so sweet, and we love him for being so selfless! He truly misses his dear friend and we can’t wait to see how much money he raises in her honor.
