MEGHAN LINSEY knew she'd be stepping into some serious controversy by taking a knee after singing the National Anthem at Sunday's Seahawks / Titans game . . . but her convictions outweighed it all.
She says, quote, "I was absolutely terrified. I knew what I was getting ready to do, and I understood what it meant. Obviously, I made a name for myself in country music, and I knew what the backlash would be. But I have to go into my gut and my heart, and I knew that was the right thing to do."
She admits the move was a reaction to PRESIDENT TRUMP's comments in Alabama on Friday. Quote, "I thought, 'Man, it really does need to be addressed, and I think I'm in a position to take a stand and hopefully make a difference.'"
