“Before Meghan Linsey was a big hit on NBC’s The Voice, she was already a winner to us for supporting Curing Kids Cancer at our Craig Kimbrel Cowboy Boots Bash Concert last November,” said Grainne Owen, founder and executive director of Curing Kids Cancer. “We are thrilled to be working with her again to raise money for pediatric cancer research. She shares our belief that no child should ever die from these horrible diseases and far too many families lose their children because of a lack of funding for childhood cancer research.”
