Eric Church was a headliner at the Route 91 Harvest Festival just 48 hours prior to the Las Vegas shooting. It was until he was sent a video of two members of his Church Choir, Heather and Sonny Melton, that he decided to go on with his Grand Ole Opry performance October 4.

The Tennessee natives traveled to the festival to see Church and sadly Sonny was killed. The country star announced he wrote a new song, "Why Not Me," which he then dedicated to the Meltons.

Church learned the couple had purchased tickets to see his Opry performance and pointed out the two empty seats in the room. He revealed he was feeling broken and music was the only thing that has ever helped fix that.
