Just a day following the deadliest mass shooting in our nation's history, several beloved members of the country music community dedicate their new song to the victims taken by hatred.
All four members of Little Big Town were heartbroken at hearing of the horrendous loss of life that occurred when a shooter opened fire in an Orlando night club, and they felt compelled to do something in honor of the innocent lives claimed that night.
Performing during the 2016 CMA Fest in Nashville, the group decided there was no song more fitting than the very first song they wrote with their friend and producer, Pharrell Williams.
Talking before their performance and back stage, the group expressed their feelings toward the act of terror.
“For me, music has been the ultimate healer,” Karen Fairchild tells The Tennessean. “We will not let the haters destroy what we love and enjoy, and we will not live in fear of this, and tonight is going to be a celebration of life and love and harmony.”
“We’re going to remember the lives that were lost and we’re going to celebrate them tonight. We are not going to let the negative tell us what we’re gonna do."
The song they sang in honor of the Orlando victims, perfectly titled, "Miracle", talks about God reaching His helping hand down to save someone who's "knee deep in trouble, so much struggle" and God then gives "some healing for this heart", ending with "I need a miracle."
It sounds like the group is hinting at our world needing God to send a helping hand to rescue us from all this hatred, and that we need a miracle.
