Country Artists Pay Tribute To Orlando Shooting Victims, Offer Therapy Through Music
June 13, 2016 at 1:40 PM (PT)
As word spread about the tragedy in ORLANDO early YESTERDAY (6/12), Country artists were forced to decide how to handle the news and honor the victims during their shows. BROTHERS OSBORNE were on the road in JACKSONVILLE and offered their take on VINCE GILL's classic "Go Rest High On That Mountain" during the set; see a clip of that performance on the duo's FACEBOOK page. Back at the CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, LUKE BRYAN called for a moment of silence in honor of the shooting victims, while LITTLE BIG TOWN dedicated their song, "Miracle" to all those affected. See clips of BRYAN's moment of silence here and LBT's tribute performance here.
This MORNING (6/13), the PREMIERE NETWORKS nationally syndicated "BOBBY BONES SHOW" hosted several artists as they shared live performances in honor of those who lost their lives in the tragedy. "Music is great therapy," shared BONES via FACEBOOK. BRANDY CLARK, KELSEA BALLERINI, LINDSAY ELL, DAN + SHAY, and CAM all joined the show to help spread healing through music. BONES has full performances on the SHOW's website here. Additionally, all proceeds from this WEEK's sales of the "BOBBY BONES SHOW" #PimpinJoy merchandise will benefit families of the ORLANDO victims. Learn more here.
