Three of the artists who performed at last year's Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas will team up at the Grammy Awards to honor victims of concert tragedies. Eric Church, Maren Morris and Brothers Osborne are all slated to take the Grammy stage on January 28, coming together for a touching tribute in honor of those affected by the tragic shooting at the Las Vegas festival as well as other victims of concert violence. During the night, the Recording Academy will also take a moment to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at live music events over the course of the past year.
These artists join previously announced Grammy performers, including Little Big Town, Elton John, U2, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Pink and more.
Hosted by TV personality James Corden, the 60th Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from New York's Madison Square Garden on January 28 at 6:30 PM. It’s definitely going to be an emotional night for everyone, including Eric Church, who says he feels a personal connection to the people that lost their lives in Vegas because a lot of them frequently attended Eric’s shows.
As LANCO releases their debut album, Hallelujah Nights today, the band's Brandon Lancaster talks about how the record's title track sets its tone:
He says, "It kind of encompasses the theme of the entire album which is no matter what situation you're in, looking at the moments you're given and realizing that they're special and the people around you and the things you're going through, you know, you won't get those back and to make the most of them. That's to us what a 'hallelujah night' is."
