Out singer Brandi Carlile announced Sunday that, unlike Bruce Springsteen, she would not be canceling any of her North Carolina shows over the recently passed bill allowing LGBT discrimination.
In her announcement, Carlile thanked Springsteen for bringing awareness to the anti-LGBT bill in North Carolina. "These are massive shows and this is big business lost for NC- Bruce is not LGBTQ himself- but is bravely defending those of us that are."
"For very different reasons I have decided not to cancel my North Carolina shows," she continued, noting that to cancel her shows would only "further oppress" her LGBT fanbase.
The singer also noted that as she wrote the announcement, she was passing through the state of Massachusetts — the same state where she legally married her wife just four years ago.
"We're going to come together, let our voices be heard, not stand down, and make a joyful noise in the face of this insult of a law," she wrote.
Carlile has four scheduled stops in North Carolina in the upcoming months.
