While onstage at CMA Fest on Sunday night, Luke Bryan honored the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando with an emotional performance of “Drink Beer.”
Midway through the song, Bryan stopped and led the 50,000 fans in a moment of silence.
“I wanna take a quick second, something has been real heavy on my heart today, and I know a lot of you guys have been dealing with the same thing that I’ve been dealing with. I want us to take a brief moment of silence, and let’s think about all of those families that have been affected in Orlando, Florida and what happened in our great nation last night. So let’s take a moment of silence and pray for all of the families and everybody affected.”
