A Paralyzed Zac Brown Band Fan Couldn’t Make It To Their Concert, So The Band Went To Him Instead

Thomas Schoettle was looking forward to seeing Zac Brown Band, his favorite country act, perform live on July 14. However, a tragic diving accident 17 days before the concert left the Pennsylvania teen paralyzed and unable to attend the show.

On Saturday, Zac Brown surprised his No. 1 fan at Bryn Mawr Rehab Center where Schoetlle continues to recover from his injuries, including a fractured neck and bruised spinal chord.

“Oh my God,” the 17-year-old Glenolden native said as Brown entered his room as seen in videos shared by his mother, Samantha Springfield-Schoettle, on Facebook. “I figured since you couldn’t come to us, we’d come to you,” Brown, 38, joked. – People

Is someone cutting onions around here? This is simply wonderful, and while it might’ve been a minor inconvenience for the ZBB to visit this kid in the hospital, it clearly meant the world to Thomas. I’ve never understood people who have fame, fortune or power and don’t use it for good, but I’m glad to see that Zac Brown and his band are some of the good guys. Kudos to them for this gesture, and hopefully Thomas continues to recover.
