Miranda Lambert is one of our country's most cherished country singers and songwriters. So far in her career, Lambert has been honored by the Grammy Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the Country Music Association Awards.
Over the weekend, Lambert performed a concert in Connecticut. A tear-jerking moment came the second that Lambert began to sing her Grammy-winning hit, "The House That Built Me". She was barely finished singing the very first verse when she stopped.
It was a sign in the crowd that pulled her heart strings so much so that she stopped mid verse and said to the person holding it,
The man holding the sign was a soldier and his sign read,
“3 combat tours. Your voice was the last thing I listened to EVERY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!”
Lambert tearfully walked over and picked up the soldier's sign. She happily showed the crowd as well as the band what had got her so choked up.
After that she proudly propped the soldier's sign by her microphone and attempted to finish singing the song. In the now viral video you can visibly see Lambert wiping tears away. The video also zooms in on the soldier who held the sign and him sharing in the tearful moment.
Still tearing up, Lambert asks the crowd to finish out the second verse so she can grab her drink and compose herself. The crowd was more than happy to oblige.
When the song is finished she happily says
to the soldier in the crowd.
Sources have found that the soldier's name was Jeff Tudisca.
He reportedly told country station, WWYZ Country 92.5,
"I didn't mean to do that to her...I just wanted maybe a wink or a wave, but that was more than I could ever ask for".
