AllMusic Review by

A triumphant project from lauded music therapy program at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, Everybody Has a Story pairs songs written by patients with Nashville country artists like Faith Hill, Alison Krauss, Kix Brooks, Melinda Doolittle, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Faith HIll, Fisk Jubilee Singers, Maura O'Connell, Johnny Reid, and Shel and Phil Vassar. Born out of therapy sessions between patients Austin Bagby, Ethan Carpenter, Courtney Gaoette, Erica Kilburn, Amy Overton, Gigi Pasley, and Christopher Weber, each of whom helped to craft the lyrics and melodies of each song with music therapist Jenny Plume, all of the tracks are given the full studio treatment, resulting in a powerful collection of contemporary country songs that both inspire and heal.
