Jake Owen has teamed up with Saint Thomas Health Center for their annual “Rock The Cradle” charity event presented by the Academy of Country Music. Set for Tuesday, October 29 at the Loveless Barn in Nashville, the event will benefit newborns in need at St. Thomas Midtown Hospital and feature cocktails, dinner, a live auction and a performance by Jake.

“Lacey and I are so thankful every day for our daughter Pearl,” Jake said. “She has changed our lives for the better. What ‘Rock The Cradle’ does to help newborns in need is incredible. I’m honored to give back and be a part of this event.”

“Jake is a friend to the Academy and has consistently given his time to ACM charitable endeavors, including participating in ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp in June,” Tiffany Moon, Executive Vice President/Managing Director of the Academy of Country Music, said. “We are delighted to support Jake’s generous spirit by sponsoring ‘Rock The Cradle.’”

In the past three years, “Rock The Cradle” has raised more than $500,000 to support obstetrics care and the Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of donors, thousands of babies and their families have benefited from cutting-edge technology and financial assistance to those with urgent needs.

“The Saint Thomas Health Foundation is able to provide essential financial and emotional support to these families, helping minimize stress and allowing them to focus on caring for their new family member,” Bernie Sherry, president and CEO of Nashville Inpatient Operations for Saint Thomas Health, said. “From support for innovative technology to ensuring families have a place to stay so they can be near their baby, the proceeds from Rock The Cradle make a significant difference in the lives of our tiniest patients and their families.”

Funding from the Saint Thomas Health Foundation has helped renovate and equip Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital’s NICU, provided continuing education for nurses and other staff and assisted families with children in the NICU. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit
