Eric Church Performs “Standing Their Ground” For Fallen Police Officers…Holy Chills

Way back in 2016, Eric Church performed “Standing Their Ground” at the National Peace Officers Memorial Service.

In case you were unaware, Eric’s grandpa Rusty was Chief of Police in Granite Falls, NC.

“Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week is an observance in the United States that pays tribute to the local, state, and federal peace officers who have died, or who have been disabled, in the line of duty. It is celebrated May 15th of each year (Wikipedia).” 

It’s clear Church has a deep reverence for those that protect us, whether that be police officers, fire fighters, military, all first responders, etc.

Give yourself some chills with this.

His performance of “Standing Their Ground” at the Opry following the Route 91 massacre – powerful…

Lyrics to “Standing Their Ground”

I like to think that I
have strong enough conviction
to give my life for something
I believe

But the truth is that I
ever been put in that position
where I’d have to die
to keep someone else free

but their are those, that do it every day
and their are those, that will tomorrow
so tonight I pray, as I lay my worries down
to watch over those, still standing their ground

I like to think that I
have had the kind of courage
to speak the name of god
where it was veined

or be the kind of guy
who stayed by her side
when a lot of other guys
would of ran

cause their are those, that do it every day
and their are those, that will tomorrow
so tonight I pray, as I lay my worries down
Lord watch over those, still standing their ground

I make my living with this old guitar
I stand on a stage and I pour out my heart
It might not seem like much in the scheme of things
yea I doubt I’ll ever save a life with one of these songs I sing

but their are those, that do it every day
and their are those, that’ll save one tomorrow
so tonight I pray, as I lay my worries down
Lord please watch over those still standing their ground
