Country Music Says #PrayForParis
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:
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.”
