ABOUT PICKIN' FOR PREEMIES: Pickin' for Preemies is a Texas Red Dirt Country Music Event benefiting Cook Children's tiniest patients in their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).In 2005, after their own personal experience, Justin and Casey Frazell had an idea to combine their love for red dirt music with their passion to help premature babies. Thanks to the advanced care provided by Cook Children's, the Frazells are able to watch their 10 and 13 year old children live healthy, happy lives. Thanks to advances in neonatal medicine, technologies, excellent outcomes and donor funding, Cook Children's neonatal program is nationally recognized and state certified at the highest level. As the only Level IV NICU in Tarrant County, Cook Children's has the technology and expertise to treat the sickest babies with the most difficult and complex diagnoses.More than 1,000 babies are admitted to our NICU each year. Cook Children's uses 600 specialized preemie diapers a day in the NICU, an average of 219,000 diapers a year! However, diapers are just one of many components to caring for these fragile babies. They also need specialized equipment, beds and medicines to name a few. This year, we will have over a dozen Texas Red Dirt artists donate their time to raise money for the cause, live auction, chance drawing opportunities and tons of fun at Billy Bob's Texas! Twelve years later, Pickin' for Preemies has grown from an idea into a tradition. Imagine the relief families feel knowing, with your support, they can receive the best care possible for their tiny Texans right in their own backyard.
