Easton Corbin returned to his hometown of Trenton, Fla., on May 4 to pay his respects to two area deputies who were gunned down while eating at a restaurant on April 19.
The fallen Gilchrist County deputies—Sgt. Noel Ramirez, 30, and deputy Taylor Lindsey, 25—were honored at the Relay for Life of the Tri-Counties in Trenton. Easton performed the national anthem to open the ceremony and met with community members during the event.
During his trip to Trenton, the mayor’s office also dedicated a “hometown” sign to Easton.
Over the course of his decade-long career, Easton has netted six Top 10 hits, including two No. 1 singles, “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.”
My thoughts and prayers are with my friends at the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s department. Sending love to the families of Sgt. Ramirez and deputy Lindsey.
