[LISTEN] Donny Lee recorded "16 souls" for a Humboldt Broncos players funeral today

So yesterday I got a ton of messages through the CISN Country Facebook page about this song from Donny Lee

After playing it on my show, I got a message on Facebook from Donny and we were able to connect on the phone to chat about it.

Donny went to the studio yesterday at the request of Adam Herold’s family and recorded a version of that song for his funeral today. He sent me the version early this morning and it is beautiful

After playing it this afternoon, I got some really powerful texts like this

“Thank you for playing that song. I just pulled over and bawled the entire time. I don’t know any of the family effected but my heart still hurts for them. -Amanda”

“Im not a very emotional kinda guy. But that song brought tears to my eyes and i had to pull over… Yall are doing an awesome job at morning and supporting these family’s”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Adam’s family and friends, we are so sorry for your loss.
