Country superstar Eric Church was a headliner at the Route 91 Harvest Festival just two days before the tragic shootings in Las Vegas. He stood on the very same stage as Jason Aldean did when shots started in on the crowd.
After the incident, Church was watching an interview on CNN, he heard the story of Sonny Melton, who lost his life that night. Sonny's wife, Heather, spoke of how he was a huge Eric Church fan and they attended the festival all weekend. They even had plans to see Church at the Grand Ole Opry just a few days after the festival, but that never happened.
Obviously, Church was filled with emotion and decided to put those feelings into a song. He penned 'Why Not Me' and dedicated it to Sonny. Today, he's performing this song for the first time at the Opry and saving 2 seats for Heather and Sonny. Let's continue to pray for all of those effected by these tragic events.
