2020 has been a challenging year, but there were really good things that happened this year! Country stars are some of the most giving people and here are a few moments that lifted spirits and helped others.

Dolly Parton not only read bedtime stories on her YouTube Channel , released a Holly Dolly Christmas album to spread Christmas cheer, she DONATED $1 million to help fund Covid 19 research that was partly used to fund the Moderna vaccine.
Dolly is a national treasure.
2. Luke Combs Delivered Guitars to Help Veterans
Watching Luke Combs surprising Veterans who were learning to play guitar to deal with PTSD was priceless! Crashing through the warehouse during one of their lessons with a Ford truck bed full of guitars was so fun to watch. Guitars for Vets is the charity, and it was cool that he stuck around and they played a song together!
And Luke Combs also brought a welcome relief of some good news in 2020 by getting married to Nicole.
3. Carrie Underwood Duets with Her Son on "Little Drummer Boy"

5. Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Entertain and Keep Us Sane Online and On TV
There's something that is so calming when Garth and Trish get together and have conversations with each other and the fans, and then sing together.They continued to do this all through the pandemic from Studio G (Garth's studio at home). Thanks for taking care of our soul during 2020!
