Country Music Says #PrayForParis

Artists Share Shock After Terror Attacks 11/16/15

Almost immediately after the series of terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday (Nov. 13) – the worst violence in France since WWII that killed at least 120 people – the country music community started sharing their sadness and their prayers one of the quickest ways they could: on social media.

Kacey Musgraves, who was overseas for a string of European dates when it happened, acknowledged that, “The shows must go on.” But before that, she’d tweeted:

Taylor Swift was also far from home when it happened, wrapping things up in Shanghai, and she wrote:

Charlie Daniels had a series of ongoing tweets about the incident, mostly political in nature. He has almost been live-tweeting the entire aftermath. But his best one was simply:

Kelsea Ballerini, who is wise beyond her years, said:

Other artists had simple messages, like Luke Bryan who just wrote #PrayForParis and Miranda Lambert, who did the same, adding the illustration of the peace sign embedded with the Eiffel Tower.

Carrie Underwood tweeted, “Thoughts, prayers and hearts go out to Paris…” And Tim McGraw wrote, “Our thoughts & prayers are with everyone in Paris tonight.”

Brad Paisley took to Twitter immediately, saying, “So heartbroken over Paris.” And then the next day, he added, “Joining in. #prayforparis.”
