Before performing the tender ballad “Rainbow,” Musgraves dedicated the number “to everyone who has the bravery to even show up to a music festival,” a possible reference to the 2017 massacre at a Las Vegas music fest, or this weekend’s two mass shootings in bustling areas of El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

Musgraves invited the crowd to join her in yelling “somebody fucking do something” in regards to the tumultuous state of the country, and the response was deafening. [Chicago Sun Times]
