Best Artist/Fan Moment of 2017? 2017 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards
You're likely to cry happy and sad tears watching some of the videos nominated in the Best Artist/Fan Moment category for the 2017 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards.
The eight nominees show country music's commitment to the fans through good times and bad. Luke Bryan provided the moment of a lifetime for a little girl with terminal cancer. Zac Brown dropped by the hospital when one of his fans was paralyzed. Rascal Flatts heard two fans were getting married and they didn't want to miss the fun.
Photos of Dierks Bentley paying tribute to injured war veterans and Lauren Alaina bending down to squeeze a young blind fan will melt your heart. So will Brett Eldredge bringing his dog Edgar to a meet and greet for the first time ever. The pup licked 6-year-old Lily in the face, which brought a special smile from this special little girl.
Two other nominees include another moment provide by Eldredge and one courtesy of Garth Brooks. The "The Long Way" singer surprised three fans at WE Fest in Minnesota last summer, and at least one of the women still hasn't stopped crying. Brooks gave away his guitar, but it proved to be a gesture much bigger than even he realized.
