This is the song Jason Aldean was singing when gunshots rang out. It’s a beautiful song from the Night Train CD which is one of my favorites. This particular song holds deep meaning in our house. I’m a country music fan, as anyone who knows me already knows.
Some of my happiest memories have been at country music concerts. There is nothing like the power of a live show and the energy in the crowd. I’ve seen Jason Aldean several times and he never disappoints.
As this morning’s news unfolds the only story is of a horrific shooting at the hands of one man with more weapons than the second amendment ever intended at a concert. I’m again wondering, when will it end.
The details of motive are yet to be answered. I’m listening to interviews with other artists who were there and they are all people I’ve seen before. Just like school shootings impact me personally as a teacher, this hits my heart. It’s a sad day.
