Earlier this year, 6-year-old Wyatt McKee, who is awaiting a heart transplant after being diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, had an unforgettable experience with American country music singer Blake Shelton. The legend welcomed the boy on stage during his show at Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durant, Oklahoma.

Wyatt’s mother, Harley McKee, had previously posted a video on social media, revealing the moment she told the young lad that a good samaritan had fulfilled Wyatt’s wish to see his favorite musician in concert. “We just got the news that a very nice man who heard about how much Wyatt loves Blake Shelton has paid for his ticket to see him live!! He’s so excited!! I don’t know this man but thank you so much!!” the mom shared on Facebook.

Interestingly, at the concert, Wyatt caught Shelton’s attention while holding a homemade placard that read, “Your smallest biggest fan from Lake Texoma, 6 [year old] waiting on a [heart] transplant.”

The Grammy Award nominee couldn’t contain his emotion, “Think y’all are having a bad day, put that into perspective right there, man.” Shelton told the crowd as he kneeled next to the boy, “The next note he has on here, he asks if he can sing this song with me.”

Shelton obliged Wyatt’s request, and the duo sang one of the young boy’s favorites, “God’s Country,” from the singer’s hit album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country, released in 2019. The song won the Country Music Association song of the year honor and was nominated for a Grammy for best country solo performance.
