With the political climate the way it is at the moment, everyone seems a bit unsure about what’s in store for the country. In the midst of such a worrisome time for many, music is the one thing that continues to serve as a source of comfort.
Just five days before Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, “Small Town USA” singer Justin Moore was on his appropriately titled, American Made Tour. Performing in front of a packed house, Moore stopped mid-concert to say something that had been weighing heavy on his mind.
“I grew up really close to my family and my parents, aunts, uncles,” he said. “But in particular I grew up really, really close to one of my grandfathers. He was in the Navy, and another of my grandfathers was in the Air Force.”
Moore’s statements earned enthusiastic applause from the audience. He continued on, expressing his thankfulness to all of the men and women that serve or have served in our nation’s armed forces.
But it was what Moore said next that had the entire crowd hollering at the top of their lungs:
“We’re the greatest country in the world. And I know things are a little goofy right now, but don’t get it twisted ladies and gentlemen. The United States of America is still the greatest country in the world.”
Moore went on to thank our servicemen and women once again, along with other everyday heroes such as nurses and first responders.
Tune in below to see Moore’s powerful speech in its entirety.
