A news reporter in the crowd captured the special moment on video and shared it on social media. Since then, the touching video has become viral.

It wasn’t the boy’s first time to be up close a country star. For every concert he’s been to, he’d bring a sign that would ask the star to let him come up the stag.


He had the chance to meet stars like Brad Paisley and Luke Bryan. Naturally, Underwood was next on the list.

Speaking with WKRC-TV, Connor’s mother revealed that her son had been a big Underwood fan. She also shared that Underwood’s “Little Toy Guns” is very special to Connor.

According to her, the song “hits home” for Connor “because he wishes no one would ever get hurt.”


Connor supposedly had been depending on Underwood’s music for comfort. His mother said that “country music is like medicine to him.”

As for Underwood, her sweetness with Connor reflects what she is like as a mother to her son.

Now that she’s expecting for baby number two, she had been explaining to her three-year-old son, Isaiah, the concept of having a sibling.

Previously, she opened up about her pregnancy and Isaiah in an interview with Jimmy Fallon.
