The song “Child’s Wish” is inspired by a young girl, and her family’s visit to Nashville. The thought of coming here was of their youngest, whom I will call Rachel. Rachel was about 10 years old, and her wish was to go to the Grand Ole Opry.
While speaking to both her and her family, she had no cares in the world. Nothing could, nor would take away the smile she had on her face. She was so excited to be in Nashville! Her wish was coming true! I found out moments later from her mother that Rachel was here with Make a Wish.
The non-profit organization who grants the wishes of terminally ill children. I knew this would be a wish neither Rachel nor her family would ever forget. For Rachel, and for those like her, who are on our minds and in our hearts, I dedicate this song to them. May their wishes and all our wishes come true.
