Eric Church speaks about Route 91 Harvest Festival Tragedy

Eric Church was the headliner for Friday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.  He played the Grand Ole Opry last night (10.4.17) and left the crowd speechless.  He shared the story of a fan of his, Sonny Melton, who traveled to Vegas specifically to see Church play.  Sadly Melton is one who was senselessly killed on Sunday night.  Melton and his girlfriend had tickets for last night’s show at the Opry.  Their seats were empty, and Church reveals that is the only reason he was there – to play for them.  Please take the time to watch the video below.

I was born & raised in Orlando, FL. I love living here, but my dream and goal is to be in Nashville sooner rather than later.. I grew up on country music and remember riding around in my dad’s truck singing along to Reba, The Judds, and of course King George. Pure Country was a movie that played often in our house. These days, I absolutely love following “up and coming” artists. Anyone who knows me knows that Cale Dodds is my favorite; and when he’s touring anywhere in the southeast, I’m at his show. I love everything about country music; the way artists appreciate their fan base, the loyalty the fans show their favorite performers, and how it brings people together. I can thank country music for allowing me to meet some awesome people, and some who have become dear friends.
