Date: Jul 22, 2021 Posted By: Connor Willson
Luke Combs has stepped in to pay the funeral costs for the three men who died during this year’s Faster Horses Festival in Brooklyn, Michigan. The news was first confirmed by WoodTV.com’s sister station WLNS. A representative for Combs has confirmed the news to CMT as well. Combs headlined Faster Horses Festival’s Friday, July 16 concert.
According to a statement from the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office (reported by WXYZ Detroit), five men were found unresponsive in their travel trailer at a campground by US-12 and Brooklyn Highway in Woodstock Township, Michigan. Three of the men were pronounced dead at the scene, while two others were hospitalized and treated for acute carbon monoxide poisoning.
Woodtv.com lists the names of the deceased as Dawson Brown, Kole Sova, and Richie Mays.
On Monday, July 19, Faster Horses Festival posted a statement on their social media pages, saying, “All of us in the Faster Horses Festival Family are deeply saddened by the tragic losses this weekend, as confirmed by the Lenawee County Sheriff’s department…Our hearts are broken for the families, friends and loved ones.”
Faster Horses Festival took place July 15-17, 2021. Other headliners for this year’s festival included Thomas Rhett and Jason Aldean.
Canada Day....A day of mourning for our Indigenous community!
Date: Jul 02, 2021 Posted By: Connor Willson
As many of us will be celebrating Canada Day, many of us are in mourning after the discovery of hundreds of bodies in unmarked graves at former schools for Indigenous children.
For decades, families were forced to send their children to boarding schools to assimilate them, in what a national Truth and Reconciliation Commission found in 2015 was an effort to wipe out their cultures. With the discovery of the bodies at three schools in Western Canada, most of them children, many members of Indigenous communities and their leaders say that it’s inappropriate at this moment to celebrate the country behind the system.
“Celebrating Canada Day is being seen as inconsiderate to all the children’s lives that were lost and we encourage everyone to consider the price these children had to pay at the hands of the Canadian government,” Chief Bobby Cameron of the Saskatchewan Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations said in a statement.
Today we remember, honor all the lost children and all the suffering to all the families affected by this tragedy! We acknowledge that the Indigenous community has suffered and continues to suffer and grieve!
Lets Build A Better Canada, learn from the mistakes of the past, treasure that ALL LIVES MATTER!

Miranda Lambert Takes Us Back To The Thrill Of Live Shows With New Video for “Tequila Does”
Date: Jan 29, 2021 Posted By: Connor Willson
Miranda Lambert misses being on the concert stage, singing songs from her ample catalog of hits in front of thousands of adoring fans.
While live shows are largely paused due to the ongoing pandemic, Lambert is giving fans a helping of nostalgia, releasing a concert video for “Tequila Does,” a dancehall-ready, steel guitar-soaked track from her 2019 Wildcard album. Lambert wrote the song with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram, who also co-wrote Lambert’s stellar ballad “Tin Man.”
“Filmed this at a show before everything shut down. We miss singing with y’all. But love that you have given this song a life of its own since day one,” Lambert said via social media.
The performance for the video was filmed during Lambert’s 2019 headlining Roadside Bars Pink Guitars Tour, where Lambert shared the stage with fellow artists including Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, and Lambert’s Pistol Annies cohorts Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe.
The video’s footage captures the thrill of a live concert, including images of an arena packed with fans as they dance, hold their hands high in the air and sing along to the music. Other scenes show Lambert and her tourmates taking celebratory shots, and, at the video’s closing, Lambert mixing up her own tequila with lime backstage.
Lambert’s Wildcard project is nominated for Best Country Album at the upcoming Grammy awards in March, while her No. 1 hit “Bluebird” is nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance.
