“This previous Friday, I played the Harvest Music Celebration in Vegas. I was the headliner. I kept an eye out there, at that crowd, in that place. It was our last show of the year and I watched them hold American flags up during “How ‘Bout You.” I watched them put an American scarf around my neck throughout “Springsteen,” they held records up when I played “Record Year,” they held boots up when I played “These Boots.” I was so moved by it, generally due to the fact that I looked at ’em and went “This is my crowd. I have actually seen this crowd all year, they’re mine.” They originated from all over the country because it was our last program, and I did something various on the last tune on “Springsteen.” I jumped down on the speaker, and I went down, really on the flooring, it was a high stage so I really jumped out on the ground. And there was a little row that split the crowd, and it went all the method to my front of home man and it divided the crowd on either side so, the crowd was on the right side, the crowd was on the left side. I decreased the ideal side and I shook everybody’s hand and I told them “Thank you for coming, it’s been a heck of a year, it’s been a hell of a year actually.” And I went all the method down the right side, waved at my noise person, came back up the left side, smiling faces, hands in the air, photos being taken. I jumped back up on phase and played “Holdin’ My Own” and “A Male Who Was Gon na Pass away Young.” And Two Days later on, in those locations that I stood, was carnage. Those are my individuals. Those are my fans.

I didn’t want to be here tonight. I didn’t wish to play guitar. I didn’t wish to stroll on this phase, however last night, let me attempt to get this out, last night somebody sent me a video of a girl called Heather Melton and she was speaking with Anderson Cooper on CNN and she had on our Church Choir Trip shirt. And he stated, “exactly what brought you to Vegas?” and she goes “We went there to see Eric Church because he was Sonny’s [her other half who passed away] it was his person, and we went there to see his guy.” Then she stated “We have tickets for the Grand Ole Opry tomorrow night.” And there’s a, over here, section 3, row F, if you exist in row F, there’s some empty seats and that’s their seats. And, I’m going to tell you something, the factor I’m here, the factor I’m here this evening, is because of Heather Melton and her partner Sonny, who passed away, and everyone that existed. I’ll tell you something, I saw that crowd. I saw them with their hands in the air. I saw them with boots in the air. And exactly what I saw, that moment in time that was frozen there’s no quantity of bullets that can remove. None.

And that night, something broke in me, on Sunday night when that happened. And the only way I’ve ever repaired anything that’s been broken in me is with music. So I composed a song …”
