Randy, through choked back tears, said to widowed Heather Barton:
I want to tell you what an honor it is for us to be able to play for you.
Randy gave Barton a chance to say a few words as well:
Freedom ain’t free, you guys. Support our troops because you never know what’s going to happen. Pray for them.
Barton’s father made this moment possible for her, alerting the band that she would be there and that she was the widow of PFC Christopher Ryan Barton. Randy then sent Heather backstage, saying his wife had something for her. After a moment of silence, Randy began the hit Alabama song, “Angels Among Us”, the perfect ending to such an emotional moment that will tear at the heartstrings.
God bless our troops and all the sacrifices they and their loved ones make for our nation’s freedoms.
