The story of Miranda Lambert and the soldier is about to get the perfect ending Instagram/@iloverandalambert

There are stories that live on long after they happen.

And this one just might be one of them.

On Aug. 19, country superstar Miranda Lambert noticed the sign of superstar-in-his-own-right Jeff Tudisca. A war veteran, Jeff’s sign read “3 combat tours…your voice was the last thing I heard every night. Thank you.” Miranda quickly noticed the sign as she sang “The House that Built Me” and ended up crying, unable to finish performing the song.

That’s where the story could have ended.


Yet, fairy tales don’t usually end that way.

Instead, Jeff was contacted by an east coast radio station, who talked to him more about the special moment. “I didn’t mean to make [her cry],” he said. “All I wanted maybe was a wink or a wave. So that was more than I could ever ask for.”

Nevertheless, Jeff informed the radio station that he was currently trying to enter a contest to win a meet and greet with Miranda at her Foxboro shows on either Aug.26 or 27. Yet, the radio hosts assured them that they could help out with that, explaining “it’s the least we can do.”

We can’t wait to see how this story ends.
