Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne & Eric Church to Honor Vegas Victims at Grammys 2018

Grammys Vegas Victims Tribute

Maren Morris, Eric Church and Brothers Osborne each took the stage back in the fall in Las Vegas for the Route 91 Festival before tragedy struck when a gunman killed 58 concertgoers and wounded more than 500 on October 1st. All three artists will team up to hit the stage during the 60th Annual Grammy Awards to pay tribute to those lives lost at Route 91 as well as the victims at the bombing in Manchester, England at the Ariana Grande concert.

“Live music events have always provided a safe space for fans to gather in a shared celebration of music,” President/CEO of the Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, said in a statement. “Sadly, that wasn’t always the case this past year. We believe it’s incredibly important to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in these senseless tragedies and to remind musicians and music lovers alike that live music will continue to be a powerful force that unites us all.”

Morris is nominated in the same category she won at last year’s awards, Best Country Solo Performance while Brothers Osborne are up for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.   The 60th Annual Grammy Awards will air live on January 28th on CBS.
