(WTVY) Church fought back tears several times as he talked about the tragedy.
He also told the moving story of a woman who said she and her husband went to the music festival to see him perform on Friday, but he died at a concert Sunday night, trying to protect her from the hail of bullets.
"The reason I'm here tonight is because Heather Moon and her husband Sonny, he died. And every person that was there. Becuase I"m going to tell you something, I saw that crowd. I saw them with their hands in the air. I saw them with boots in the air.. what I saw that moment in time that is frozen... there's no amount of bullets they can take away."
Moon and her husband also had tickets to see church at the Grand Ole Opry this week.
