Watch Luke Bryan stop CMA performance to pay tribute to Orlando shooting victims

Luke Bryan CMA moment of silence

Early Sunday morning, an absolutely horrible thing happened when a gunman walked into a nightclub in Florida and shot the place up. He killed 50 people (with more probably to come) and injured countless others.

While America was still trying to come to terms with what happened, Luke Bryan used his Sunday night performance at CMA Fest to recognize the tragedy with a moment of silence.

“I want us to take a brief moment of silence and let’s think about all of those families that have been affected in Orlando, Florida and what happened in our great nation last night,” the singer said. “So let’s take a moment of silence and pray for all the families and everybody affected.”

After the moment of silence, Bryan asked for the lights to be turned down and cell phones to be turned on before launching into a shortened rendition of his touching single Drink A Beer.

It was a nice moment in an otherwise crazy CMA Fest celebration.
