Some of the biggest stars in Canadian country music took to the stage at the Sasktel Centre Saturday night to honour those killed and injured the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
Gord Bamford, Jess Moskaluke and Dallas Smith were among the performers who were in Saskatoon performing to a packed house as they honoured the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, which killed 16 people and injured 13 when their team bus collided with a semi truck trailer on April 6th.
For his part, Smith said last night was a night of fun and to commence the healing process.
“Tonight is a night to celebrate, as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “Every song, we have as artists, we’re creators, we write and it tells a story.”
Bamford echoed those sentiments, saying music can be a uniting force and important in the healing process.
“I’ve seen first hand how music heals,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to see that through children. It’s probably going to be one of those opportunities that’s huge here tonight.
