The National Rifle Association will be left without one of its performers this weekend … a singer Don McLean will no longer play at the event after the shooting at the primary school in Uwalde.
McLean tells us: “In light of recent events in Texas, I decided it would be disrespectful and insulting for me to speak for the NRA at their convention in Houston this week. I’m sure all the people who plan to attend This event We are also shocked and outraged by these events. After all, we are all Americans. “
He continues: “I share the grief over this terrible, cruel loss with the rest of the nation.”
McLean, the voice behind the 1971 hit “American Pie,” was one of several performers scheduled to take the stage in Houston this weekend – some of which include Lee Greenwood, Daniel Peck and Larry Gatlin.
It was reported that there were 19 children and two teachers in the 4th grade were killed when an 18-year-old gunman opened fire with an AR-15.
Of course, Texas government officials, including the governor, are still under a lot of pressure Ebatto move the event out of state. Houston is approximately 250 miles from Uwalde.
