Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean were among the many artists who use their celebrtiry status to share a message of hope and unity. They did this at the start of the CMT Artists of the Year on Wednesday night. “That performance right there is an example of why music can be so powerful, and we have never needed it more than we do right now,” Bryan said following an emotional performance by Andra Day and Little Big Town. “We hope music can be a part of the healing.” Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban, and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley also shared words of perseverance before Aldean closed things out. “We dedicate this night to you and to everyone who’s experienced loss or tragedy in the past few months,” he added. “We will get through this together.” Watch the whole video here…
