While the late Senator John McCain was beloved by many, he held a special place for Brad Paisley, who took a moment Saturday night (Aug. 25) at his concert in Virginia to honor the Senator.

When news broke that John passed earlier that evening, celebrities took to social media to share their thoughts of his death. But Brad Paisley was on tour in Virginia and decided to pay tribute in front of thousands of fans.

From a post on Instagram we can see that Brad projected John’s image on a large screen with the dates of his birth and death—Aug. 29, 1936 – Aug.25, 2018. He tipped his hat to the Senator and performed his hit “When I Get Where I’m Going.”

“We lost an American hero today. Thank you for your service to our country, and your bravery, Sen. McCain. ,” Brad wrote with his post.

Fans at the concert captured the moment of Brad’s performance.

After Senator McCain was diagnosed with a glioblastoma, the father of 7 made the decision to stop his treatments for the disease. He passed away on Saturday, August 25 at the age of  81.

“Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018,” his office said in a statement.
