NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A special duet between a Nashville guitarist and his nurse is getting thousands of views on social media.

Brandi Mykle Leath shared the video on Facebook on Sunday and it’s already gotten more than 50,000 views. Her father, Penn Pennington, is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Sarah Cannon Cancer Center.

“My dad’s nurse, Alex, heard that he was a guitar player so she brought her guitar for him to play during his chemotherapy treatments and sang O Holy Night with him. Who knew she could also sing,” she wrote.

She encouraged people to share the video to get the word out about Alex.

Leath says that Pennington also played guitar for longtime Grand Ole Opry member Jack Greene for 23 years.
