This is why we’re called music city!
Sony Music Nashville artist Joanna Smith is not only running her first half marathon at the St. Jude Country Music Marathon Presented by Nissan on April 28 in Nashville, she has been tapped to sing the National Anthem in front of the 30,000+ participants prior to the big event.
Joanna fell in love with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital the first time she visited several years ago. Fans don’t have to run to join Joanna in the fight to raise money and awareness for St. Jude. Everyone can join “St. Jude Heroes – Run for a Reason” by clicking here and supporting Joanna’s efforts for St. Jude and the fight against childhood cancer.
“I’m so excited about being involved in the marathon,” said Joanna. ”When I think about the kids at St. Jude fighting for their lives, running 13 miles doesn’t seem like a lot. Singing the national anthem will give me lots of good nervous energy and adrenaline, so I think I’ll be good to go come race time!”
