It's a big week for Lainey Wilson.

The rising country star is set to receive quite an honor later this week  - that honor? Being officially named and awarded CMT's Breakout Artist of the Year during the 2022 CMT Artists of the Year Awards in Nashville, TN this Friday night (Oct. 14).

In the midst of her big week, however, Lainey's taken to socials to share an incredible experience she just had at Children's Hospital Colorado. 

"Hey, Y'all, it's Lainey Wilson, and I just got finished visiting Seacrest Studios. This experience today was one of my favorite experiences so far that I have had in an 11-year career of being in Nashville trying to do this," Lainey says in her Instagram video.

"Moments like today remind me why the Lord even gave me this gift, and it's to share it with people who need me and music."

During her visit to Children's Hospital Colorado, Lainey spent time meeting and posing for photos with children and even performed a live rendition of her latest single "Heart Like A Truck".

The visit was set up in partnership with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, whose prime initiative is to create broadcast media centers within pediatric hospitals for children undergoing treatment. The organization hopes patients use Seacrest Studios - like the one located in Children's Colorado - as a creative outlet and serves as an "uplifting spirit" during challenging times.

"I'll tell you that... these kids have hearts like trucks... Spending time at the @ryanfoundation location at @childrenscolo last week reminded me of the power of music and brought my heart so much joy. Thanks for having me. I hope to be back again soon!", Lainey shared in a heartwarming Instagram post following her visit to Children's.
