Back in May 2016, singer-songwriter Cole Swindell visited New York City to perform his hit single “You Should Be Here” on Fox and Friends in honor of the heroes of September 11th, 2001. Set on top of World Trade Center Four with the Freedom Tower of One World Trade Center creating the perfect backdrop, Swindell gave a whole new meaning to the powerful song which was originally written in memory of his father.
Families of those who lost their lives in the attacks on 9/11, first responders, and military personnel were all invited to attend the special performance. Before beginning, Swindell adds “This is absolutely the most special thing I’ve ever got a chance to do. I want everybody to know how much I respect this place and respect the families.”
