Many Country Stars Wore “851, 58 and 1” Pins Last Night

posted by Kayla Hanley -

Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town explained the pins that she wore as did other stars last night at the ACM Awards. 

“Tonight I’m gonna wear these pins for the 851 injured, the 58 lost and the 1 life we can save in the future if we’re willing to start a conversation about things that need to be done for our children, our families and our fans.”

Tonight I’m gonna wear these pins for the 851 injured, the 58 lost and the 1 life we can save in the future if we’re willing to start a conversation about things that need to be done for our children, our families and our fans. It is with absolute respect for our fans, their personal beliefs and their own stories that I don’t claim to have the answers or an agenda. I just know we must discuss ways to protect our freedoms and rights but also our sons and daughters. Is anything more important than them? We need a revolution of hearts and minds to see change. Our children need us. We owe those loyal fans that came to a festival in Las Vegas to listen to their favorite music but instead lived through and died over a senseless act. Many still healing from injuries, many still hurting over things they witnessed. It’s for them that I have hope in my heart that it can happen. We’ve prayed for the survivors, shed tears for the ones we lost but we can do more and we can do better. We can figure this out together. I know we can. Let’s put our fear and pride down and talk about how to protect this beautiful country and beautiful people we love so much. Maybe if we start the conversation we can save a life, and wouldn’t it be worth it? With much love and admiration. Karen #851581 #startaconversation #savealife #vegasstrong #fansfirst
