Behind the Music

Deep in the Heart Founders and co-producers, Brett Danaher and Clayton Corn, chose McLane Children’s Scott & White to be the beneficiary of this music project and receive all proceeds from CD sales. It was Colt McCoy’s participation that drew the artists and producers to McLane Children’s Hospital Scott & White. Corn says, "In keeping with the Texas theme, we thought it would be a wonderful fit and the perfect choice for a local hospital to be the beneficiary of this project.”" Listen to a special message about the CD project from Colt McCoy

Just prior to the CDs launch, "Asleep at the Wheel” legend, Ray Benson, performed songs for pediatric patients at McLane Children's Hospital after a press conference announcing the upcoming release.
