Morgan Wallen partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to create a special memory for a brave young fan

12-year-old Jayla Hibbler reached a big milestone in her battle against Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma, finishing her last rounds of both chemotherapy and radiation last week. To add to the excitement, she had the chance to see her favorite artist, Morgan Wallen, at his concert in Oxford, Mississippi on Saturday, April 20th.

A local news station reported that Jayla received the surprise from Make-A-Wish Mississippi last Thursday when she walked into Cavenders Western Outfitters expecting to go shopping. Instead, she learned that her dream to meet Morgan Wallen would come true at his show over the weekend.

Cavenders’ employees helped Jayla pick out everything she needed for the special night, including a cowboy hat and new boots.

Morgan Wallen created an “unforgettable” night for Jayla

The Morgan Wallen Foundation, which believes that “all children deserve a chance to thrive, play, and create,” partnered with Make-A-Wish to facilitate the special outing for Jayla and her family. Jayla said:

“We haven’t had a trip in a long time since all the things I’ve had going on. We’re going to make memories with family. It feels good. It feels like life is going back to normal.”

Before Morgan Wallen took the stage at the University of Mississippi, he spent some time with Jayla backstage. The young girl posed for photos with the country superstar, and the joy could be seen on her face.

We are praying for Jayla Hibbler and wish her the very best in her recovery journey. 

This recent act of kindness comes after Morgan Wallen found himself in trouble with the law when he threw a chair off a 6th-floor rooftop in Downtown Nashville. Before his show Saturday night, he spoke out on the incident for the first time. He shared online:

“I didn’t feel right publicly checking in until I made amends with some folks. I’ve touched base with Nashville law enforcement, my family, and the good people at Chief’s. I’m not proud of my behavior, and I accept responsibility. I have the utmost respect for the officers working every day to keep us all safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no change.”
