Must See Moment: Little girl’s dream comes true at Country Jam

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Over the weekend, one little girl’s dream came true, under the spotlight and in front of hundreds of Country Jam fans.

4-year-old Alexis Newton’s idol is country singer Maren Morris, who happened to be taking the stage at the musical festival on Saturday. So, the family bought tickets to see her perform. But Alexis didn’t just want to see Morris play. She wanted to meet her. So she held a sign, hoping Morris would see her in the large crowd.

What happened next was a wish granted. Morris brought Alexis up on stage and sang to her. Alexis’ father said there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd.
