The 2017 CMT Music Awards Open With A Midnight Tribute To Gregg Allman!


Opening video by videosuploaded__

A hero of both rock and country, southern rocker Gregg Allman passed just a few days ago.

And it's a testament to how much he meant to so many that the CMT Music Awards were able to put together such a great tribute in such a short amount of time — and as the opening of the show!

Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Derek Trucks, and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley all pitched in to give the Allman Brothers Band singer a proper southern sendoff.

Ch-ch-check out the spirited performance of Midnight Rider (above)!

So sad!

Disaster struck on the set of the the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider in Wayne County, Georgia, as a freight train unexpectedly arrived on the railroad bridge where the film's crew had been shooting a dream sequence.

Despite the train's warning whistle, which only gave the crew less than a minute to act, the locomotive resulted in seven injuries, and the tragic death of the film's 27-year old second camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones.

The crew, which had been filming a mattress on the tracks while on the bridge, was sent scrambling. They had planned for the arrival of two earlier trains, but the last one left them in complete surprise.

Director Randall Miller tried removing the mattress and tripped before the still photographer pulled him off the tracks, thus saving his life.

Meanwhile, the train was unable stop, struck the bed, which sent debris flying. One of the pieces of debris hit Sarah, and she fell onto the tracks, was struck by the train, and killed.

The railroad track's operator, CSX, issued this statement in response:
