Lone Bellow Pays Tribute to Victims of Covenant School Shooting with New Song

In commemoration of the one-year anniversary of the tragic mass shooting at Covenant School in Nashville, the Lone Bellow has released a new song titled “Victory Garden” as a tribute to the victims. The shooting, which claimed the lives of three students and three faculty members, left the community devastated and searching for ways to heal.

The Lone Bellow, a band deeply affected by the tragedy, expressed their feelings of powerlessness and grief following the incident. They shared their heartbreak and fury, emphasizing the belief that such a tragedy could have been prevented. In an effort to contribute to the healing process, the band sought ways to engage in acts of caring for the community and cultivating beauty amidst despair.

The proceeds from “Victory Garden” will be donated to Voices for a Safer Tennessee, a local non-profit organization that emerged in the aftermath of the Covenant School shooting. This organization aims to draw attention to the pressing need for effective gun control legislation. The Lone Bellow expressed their gratitude for the community’s support in singing the song, particularly those directly affected by the tragedy.

The title of the song, “Victory Garden,” draws inspiration from historical references, particularly the practice of citizens growing gardens during times of war to combat food shortages. These gardens were cultivated in various locations, including backyards, rooftops, and public parks. The band highlighted the resilience and hope that emerged from such acts, even in the face of destruction.

The Lone Bellow likened the process of writing a song to planting a garden, emphasizing the small act of hope and the creative seeds that grow to provide comfort and strength amidst overwhelming grief.
