Chris Janson made a special visit to a Tennessee hospital on Wednesday (March 10), the Tennessean newspaper reports. The singer-songwriter visited the Harmonicas for Health program which helps chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients with their breathing. Janson, who told the paper he had chronic breathing problems before moving to Nashville a decade ago, can relate to the therapy.
“I was having trouble breathing. … But I learned how to breathe by playing harmonica,” Janson said. “It literally built lung capacity.”
Upon his arrival, the Harmonicas for Health participants played Janson “When the Saints Go Marching In” and “Row Your Boat.”
