COUNTRY STANDARD HELPS SHINE A LIGHT FOR 9/11

September 10, 2021

Brad Paisley will perform “When I Get Where I’m Going” as part of CNN’s global Shine A Light broadcast Saturday evening in remembrance of the tragic events of 20 years ago.  The song, written by George Teren and Rivers Rutherford and recorded by Paisley featuring harmony vocals by Dolly Parton, was a Country #1 and CMA Vocal Event of the Year award winner in 2005.
The program will be broadcast from the World Trade Center, overlooking Memorial Plaza, and is being produced in partnership with the nonprofit 9/11 Memorial & Museum, the Pentagon Memorial Fund and other first responder organizations around the country.
It’s hoped that this television event will inspire people in the U.S. and worldwide to pay tribute through acts of kindness, service and good deeds.
