Jason Aldean’s cold open on SNL

I’m not going to say much about it because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but if you want to be reminded of how strongly music can work in our country watch Jason Aldean’s cold open on Saturday Night Live from last week. You can find it on Hulu or YouTube.

The man and band, who are going now destined to share a sad claim to fame with Eagles of Death Metal, gave a nice loud response to all terrorists. Mr. Aldean’s words might have sounded like pie in the sky pandering out of someone else’s mouth, but when he spoke of who we are and what we’re capable of, I just couldn’t doubt him.

So, if you haven’t seen it, try to. I think it will lift you up.

As for Mr. Aldean and his band, God bless you, folks. I can’t imagine how heavy the stone you’ve been given to carry is, but I know God’s gonna help you with that weight.

Go with our prayers for safe passage.

 

And for you readers, if you watch it, come back here and give me your impressions. The grieving process is easier when we work at it together.

Love and prayers.
