Despite the bad press from the left, country music continues to do good things in the community. The mainstream media would have America believe country music artists and fans are all racist, right-wing, MAGA hat-wearing conservatives. While much of country music is, in fact, conservative and cares about America and family values, the rest is simply leftist propaganda.
While it likely won’t get much press in the leftist media, Monday night in Nashville, Tennessee, country and gospel heavyweights united for a benefit concert for The Covenant School. Numerous big-name stars and luminaries were on hand to lend their talents and their time for a good cause.
It should be recalled that The Covenant School was the site of a shooting in late March that killed three children and three heroic adults. The victims, Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9; Hallie Scruggs, 9; William Kinney, 9; Cynthia Peak, 61; Katherine Koonce, 60; and Mike Hill, 61, were attending school when a 28-year-old former student that identified as a transgender woman killed all six before authorities took the individual out.
Now, as school is set to re-open for the fall, some of country music’s hottest stars stepped up to assist in the recovery effort for the school, staff, and parents. Jason Aldean, Morgan Wallen, Old Dominion, and Anne Wilson, among others, were in attendance.
Prior to the event, Wilson said this on social media: “I am so grateful for the way music impacts our lives and can bring us together, and I’m hoping this event will help everyone feel Jesus’ presence.”
The benefit is being rebroadcast on the Circle Network starting August 19 and will air for six consecutive nights. A few clips have leaked out already, and it promises to be an inspirational, emotional event.
Morgan Wallen, arguably the biggest star in the world right now and also a relatively new dad, had this to say: “Nobody should ever have to go through what you went through. But I just wanted to let you know that me and my family have been praying for you and that we’re here for you and we’ve just been thinking about you. You know, I’ve got a 3-year-old boy, and he’s not at school yet, but whenever I heard this news my mind couldn’t help but go straight to him and think about what you guys are going through. It’s just an honor to be here, to try to give you guys some hope, to try to hopefully have a little bit of fun as well tonight.”
Wallen shares the sentiment that every parent feels when a tragedy like this happens. When an emotionally disturbed individual perpetrates violence on the innocent, especially children, it is impossible to not feel something.
Jason Aldean, the target of the latest unsuccessful cancellation attempts from the left, said this: “I want to give a shout-out to the first responders here in Nashville who did such an amazing job. Glad to be here, glad to help out, and I think about you guys — have been for a long time.”
Unlike the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, Aldean is referring to the prompt action of Nashville first responders in neutralizing the threat before more innocent people could be slaughtered. Their bravery saved countless lives.
$570,000 has been raised, so far, to help aid the school with its re-opening efforts. Thanks to the good works of Nashville and the artists involved, more attention and money will be raised to help the school and community heal.
