“Being married to a nurse, I know firsthand how incredibly hard our amazing healthcare professionals work every day, whether it’s an average week or a long-term pandemic,” said Scotty McCreery. “These doctors, nurses, pharmacists, technicians, researchers, specialists, and medical staffs are our heroes that always rise to the challenges put in front of them. I’m proud to contribute a Gratitune to entertain and spotlight these amazing people while at the same time teaming up with the great folks at Cracker Barrel in providing them a tasty and comforting meal. I appreciate Cracker Barrel donating meals to our health care professionals, and I encourage everyone to share your love for our medical heroes.”
