If you haven’t heard this story yet, you’ve missed an emotional one.
Jeff Tudisca, an Army veteran who saw action in Afghanistan and Iraq twice, moved us all to tears when he held up a sign at Miranda Lambert’s show in Hartford, Connecticut.
The sign read, “3 combat tours … [Your] voice was the last thing I listened to EVERY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!” and Miranda saw it, read it, and brought it on stage for everyone to read.
Before deploying to Iraq, Jeff didn’t know Miranda Lambert or her music, but received a mix-taped while deployed that had two of her songs on it, “Greyhound Bound for Nowhere” and “New Strings.”
“It literally stopped me right there, and ever since that moment, that’s the only person I ever wanted to listen to,” Tudisca said in an interview.
He had seen Miranda in concert 5 times before the Hartford show on August 19th, where he decided to let Miranda know what her music had done for him.
The video of Miranda seeing his sign has gone viral, and because of that moment, Jeff got a meet and greet with Miranda on August 26th!
We’re waiting to hear more about their meeting, and will let you know when we do!
Thank you, Jeff, for your service to our country.
