Unlike in some parts of the country that has experienced looting and vandalism in the course of the protest, Nashville seemed rather peaceful. Brad's post showed a protester and a police officer named Garren praying in each other's embrace. According to the singer:

"In the midst of Saturday's confrontation...officer Garren Hoskins and the protester in front of him began talking about their shared Christain faith."

Reportedly, protesters are excited to hear the news that all four policemen involved in George's brutal arrest have been charged. Brad has honored some grocery workers apart from sharing reports on the ongoing incidences and connecting with his fans online. While many businesses have shut down, grocery stores are still open to cater to the public's needs.

The country artist surprised the workers by calling them via the Zoom app and talking to them. He shared his excitement at the gesture and claimed that the novel coronavirus pandemic gave him the time and avenue.

Brad's prowess as a country artist is built on his numerous years of practice. He secured a bachelor's degree in the music business from the University of Nashville in 1995. He went on to work as a songwriter before releasing his first song titled "Who Needs Pictures."
