During his performance on Saturday night, September 2, at the FedEx Field in the Washington, D.C., region, Morgan Wallen provided one young fan the VIP experience of a lifetime.
Reportedly, 9-year-old Kenley had always wished to see one of Wallen’s performances live, particularly after receiving a stage 2 kidney cancer diagnosis late last year. After having her left kidney and 13 lymph nodes surgically removed, Kenley started receiving once-weekly chemotherapy treatments. Kenley played DJ every time she and her mother Kristin made the hour-and-a-half trip to the hospital, choosing “nonstop Morgan Wallen songs.”
So Kristin surprised Kenley with a trip to watch a stop on Wallen’s One Night at a Time Tour after she completed a six-month course of chemotherapy in July. But that’s not all. With a little assistance from a family friend, the family was able to get in touch with the singer, and Kenley was able to see Wallen backstage, which she described as being a “total shock” to her.
The young fan’s mom said, “She was treated like a princess from the backstage tour, the access, the takeaways, the general experience. She kept telling me it was her best day ever.”
