Presidential candidate John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth had an upbeat rally scheduled at the Ryman today, with Del McCoury and Rodney Crowell singing some songs. After hearing of the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech, Edwards changed the rally to a prayer service and Vince showed up to lend his voice. No political agenda was taken, just a solemn service for the wounded and killed. I was going to attend this rally but it started at 3 pm and with the CMT Awards tongiht I didn't want to try to fight traffic and didn't know if I'd be able to park anywhere near the place. Sorry I missed it, but nice to know Vince, who wasn't scheduled to sing at the rally, showed up to lend his support.
