NASHVILLE, TN - July 29, 2016 - Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, will
honor seven-time Grammy Award winning group Lady Antebellum with the Music Heals Award at an exclusive invitation-only event on August 9th in Nashville.

It's really special to see music help people get through really tough times, so we're truly honored to be a part of what Musicians On Call is doing and receive the Music Heals Award."

With more than 18 million album sales worldwide, Lady Antebellum has earned six PLATINUM singles, countless awards including Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards, while also taking home ACM and CMA "Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row.
