Eric Church, Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne To Honor Gun Violence Victims In Special Grammy Tribute

Eric Church, Brothers Osborne, and Maren Morris will perform a special tribute during the upcoming Grammy Awards to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at various live music events over the past year. All three artists were participants in the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last year and will come together for the moving segment.

“Live music events have always provided a safe space for fans to gather in a shared celebration of music. Sadly, that wasn’t always the case this past year,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “We believe it’s incredibly important to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in these senseless tragedies and to remind musicians and music lovers alike that live music will continue to be a powerful force that unites us all.”

“In many ways, our show encapsulates the year in music,” said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the GRAMMY Awards. Although that usually means a focus on achievement and excellence, sadly, last year was marred by a number of senseless tragedies that took place at live music events. We didn’t feel like we’d be doing our jobs if we didn’t reflect on these tremendous losses.”

The performance marks the first time on the Grammy stage for the Brothers Osborne, who are nominated again this year in Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“It Ain’t My Fault”). Grammy award winner Maren Morris is currently nominated for Best Country Solo Performance (“I Could Use A Love Song”).

The 60th Annual awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City, on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Previously announced Grammy performers include Alessia Cara, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Childish Gambino, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Elton John, Kesha, Khalid, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Logic, Patti LuPone, Bruno Mars, P!nk, Ben Platt, Sam Smith, SZA, and U2.
