Partnering with the charitable organization Western Wishes, This Is Country added a segment to their daily live show at the Rodeo Cowboy Marketplace during NFR to introduce wish kids to the artists and rodeo stars that are their heroes.
The show on Sunday, December 4 featured three Western Wishes’ kids, Hannah, who was previously diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma, Jake, who has been diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, and Zach, who injured himself in a heroic effort to save someone else.
The kids were given the opportunity to meet country music’s Dee Jay Silver, who performs every night during NFR at MGM Grand’s Gold Buckle Zone.
Western footwear company Justin Boots also made an appearance to present each child with their very own pair of cowboy boots.
After the show, the Fashion Posse took wish kid, Hannah, around the booths at Cowboy Christmas to deck her out in the latest of Western fashion for the rodeo.
