As I’m putting this together, I’m wiping away tears after watching this video of Eric Church performing a new song last night at the Grand Ole Opry. Before playing the song called “Why Not Me” Eric fought through tears as he talked about being on that stage at the Route 91 music festival and connecting with those same fans who were shot at Sunday night.
“The reason I’m here tonight is because of Heather Melton, and her husband Sonny who died, and every person that was there. And I’ll tell you, I saw that crowd. I saw them with their hands in the hair, with boots in the air, and that moment in time was frozen and there is no amount of bullets that can take that away.”
Personally, I think you should watch it all, but I know sometimes you don’t have the time, so if you’re just looking for the song, start watching around 3:30
As we learned from Miranda Lambert Tuesday night, Music is Healing…so if you haven’t heard it yet, you need to take a few minutes to listen to Maren Morris “Dear Hate”
