Chris Young Teams With Cracker Barrel To Give Back To Healthcare Workers

Cracker Barrel announced today (4/21) the launch of “There’s Comfort in Giving,” a program to donate meals and pay-it-forward to healthcare professionals fighting on the frontlines of COVID-19.

Over the next few weeks, Cracker Barrel will donate 5,000 meals to healthcare workers at select hospitals in partnership with Sony Music Nashville.Chris Young will kick off the program with a live stream performance on the Cracker Barrel Facebook page on Sunday, April 26.

Chris said, “I am glad to be teaming up with Cracker Barrel to give back to the doctors, nurses, and first responders who are pushed to the limit day in and day out fighting COVID-19. My Dad is in the high risk category as a cancer survivor and missing part of his lung and I’m immensely grateful for everything our healthcare workers are doing to keep everyone safe.”

In addition to Young, participating Sony Music Nashville artists include Adam Doleac, Jameson Rodgers, Niko Moon, Matt Stell, Mitchell Tenpenny, Rachel Wammack, Robert Counts, Seaforth, and The Sisterhood Band. Many artists will host performances on their own social channels as well as engage on Cracker Barrel channels to help provide comfort and entertainment to those at home.

Guests and fans will have the opportunity to join Cracker Barrel and Sony Music Nashville in paying it forward. When guests and fans give the virtual gift of a homestyle meal to someone they love, Cracker Barrel will give a meal to a frontline worker. With the purchase of every $10 in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store e-gift cards via crackerbarrel.com now through May 12, Cracker Barrel will donate one additional meal (up to 5,000 meals) to healthcare workers as a “thank you” for their tireless efforts during these unprecedented times.
