     The world of music came together for the music industry’s biggest night of the year on Sunday to celebrate the achievements of those who make music at 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Chris Stapleton stole the show taking home 3 of the 4 awards in the Country Music category, as well as performing Tom Petty’s “Wild Flowers” with 13-time Grammy Winner, Emmylou Harris. The duo performed the song in memoriam of all of those in the music world whom we had last over the last year.

     Tears were shed during the moving performance by Maren Morris, Eric Church and The Brothers Osborne, who took the stage to pay tribute to the 58 victims killed and 489 people left injured at the  Route 91 Harvest Festival that took place late last year. “On October 1, all of country music was reminded — in the most tragic way — of the connection we share with our fans, and of the healing power that music will always provide,” Church said.
