Conservatives voiced their disapproval of Tim McGraw supporting an anti gun benefit and it may have played a part in Billy Currington backing out, but Tim is holding his ground.
TIME reported Tim’s official statement regarding the issue:
“Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far,” McGraw said in a statement to the Washington Post. “As a gun owner, I support gun ownership, I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety – most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that.”
McGraw added: “Through a personal connection, I saw firsthand how the Sandy Hook tragedy affected families and I felt their pain. The concert is meant to do something good for a community that is recovering.”
You have to respect Tim as he is coming from a place that hits very close to home and at some point that carries a much bigger moral prize.
