Remember When Trace Adkins Performed ‘Til the Last Shot’s Fired’ at the ACM Awards?

At the 2009 ACM Awards, Trace Adkins left the audience and viewers at home in tears after his performance. It’s perhaps one of the all-time top country award show moments — one that began with a standing ovation before the singer even walked onto the stage.

As the show returned from commercial, Lt. Andrew Kinard of the U.S. Marines appeared onstage in a wheelchair (Read more about his injuries here). He was warned before he made his way to the stage that there would be a healthy applause. Adkins told him to just take it in before explaining his mission with the Wounded Warrior Project.

Finally, Adkins began to sing ‘Til the Last Shot’s Fired,’ eventually creating another tear-dabbing moment when the West Point Cadet Glee Club emerged from behind him to finish the song. Watch this video to the end to see numerous country stars wiping their eyes as the crowd gives the big man, the Glee Club and Lt. Kinard a well-deserved standing ovation.
