Throwback Wednesday anyone?
Per usual, Chris’ wife, Morgane, was suppose to be up on stage alongside her husband to sing background vocals. However, according to PEOPLE, it was shared that Miranda filled in due to a “prior doula commitment” from the superstar’s wife.
Maggie’s Song was written by Stapleton and Robbie Robertson as a tribute to their late dog, whom they rescued from a shopping cart of a parking lot.
In an interview with The Tennessean, Chris spoke on how much Maggie meant to his family and why he decided to write the track:
“Every word and every stitch of that song is real things. She was a member of the family, and she deserved a song.”
If you’re familiar with the song and have a pet of your own whom you consider to be an important part of your family, the lyrics in the third verse may cause a few tears to be shed:
“She put her head on my hand, like she’d done so many times/ I told her she was a good dog, then I told her goodbye.”
