Unlike other entertainers, country music singers seem much more down to Earth and definitely more conservative than, say, actors. Sometimes even the good people surprise you, like Miranda Lambert did this weekend.
Miranda Lambert broke down in tears during a concert on Friday night in Hartford, Conn. Midway through her set, she was singing the first verse of “The House That Built Me” when a fan’s sign caught her eye.
“3 combat tours. [Your] voice was the last thing I listened to EVERY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!” the message read.
Lambert walked over, picked up the white poster board and held it up for the entire venue to see. Video shows her crying before showing it to her band. She propped the sign up on stage by her microphone stand and tried to sing the song one more time before wiping tears from her eyes. Unable to get through it, she grabbed her heart and said thank you to the veteran, who was also crying.
You can see the video below the fold. It’s pretty awesome.
For the most part, country music performers wholeheartedly support the troops, and I think their admiration for them is genuine.
