Country music star and Knoxville-native Kelsea Ballerini sent him his very own electric guitar.

“I can’t believe Kelsea Ballerini sent this to me. I can’t believe it,” Ayden Henke can be heard saying on video. Ayden’s mom Tiffany Henke shared this video with us as the guitar is being opened.

She says that a few months ago Ayden went to her concert and got a meet and greet with the star where he gave Ballerini a note in braille and a picture.

Now, she returned the gesture. The guitar even had Ayden’s name engraved on it in braille.
