They dedicated the performance to the victims of the Las Vegas hotel massacre and the Manchester Arena bombing, calling it an attack on music lovers.

Eric told the crowd: "On October 1st, all of country music was reminded in the most tragic way, the connection we share with our fans and the healing power music will always provide.

Maren added: "A few months earlier and a continent away, the same was true in Manchester England.

"The painful truth is in just those two events 81 music lovers, just like us, went out to enjoy a night of music and never came back home."

She said they were performing for the "music loving souls, so cruelly taken form us."

The quartet then broke into the classic tearjerker.

As they sang, the set below lit up, projecting the names of the victims of the two tragedies.
