Eric first performed the song at the Grand Ole Opry three days after the incident, during which Church fan Sonny Melton died protecting wife Heather from the gunman’s bullets.


Before his performance, Eric acknowledged two empty seats in the Opry crowd reserved for Sonny and Heather, who had purchased tickets to see the singer that night.
