Music is a part of our everyday lives. We hear it in stores when we go shopping, and play it in our cars on our way to work. Not only does music entertain us, but it also helps us cope with certain moods on a day-to-day basis.

So, it would be difficult to imagine what life would be like without music — unless of course, you’re Chase Pair.

Chase is a 15-year-old George Strait superfan from Little Rock, Arkansas. According to KATV, he suffers from a birth defect that will eventually make him go deaf. Knowing that he has little time left to hear George’s voice on some of his favorite songs has caused him to make one wish. And, that wish is to meet George, and hear him perform live one last time.

Turns out that Chase will get to live out a portion of his dream all thanks his mother, Julie and a few good-hearted people.

After learning about her son’s request, Julie penned a letter to George and his team explaining Chase’s condition. She also started a social media campaign to get the word out about Chase’s wish. After a few days, Verizon Arena and George’s promoter hooked Chase and his mom up with a pair of tickets to see his idol play in Las Vegas in April. In addition to that, Southwest Airlines gifted them with free round-trip airfares to their destination.

“I’m just ready to pack. I’m just happy,” said Chase enthusiastically. “I want to go see him!”

The concert venue is currently looking into obtaining meet-and-greet passes for Chase, but we’re pretty sure he’s just as thrilled to get to see his hero. Hey, we are too!
