After recording artist Brantley Gilbert heard about the recent shooting at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee, he decided he wanted to do something to honor the shooting victims, as well as James Shaw, Jr., who heroically disarmed the gunman during the attack.
“When you see someone like James, who just jumped up and did what he did – and you think about the lives he saved, you realize what a special kind of guy he is,” Gilbert says. “I called my manager, Rich Egan, who heads up the I Believe In Nashville coalition, and asked if there was any way we could do something that would shine a light and remind everyone that heroes can be real life people.”
