“Well let’s just say I missed the opportunity to sing along with the legendary [Sheryl Crow]Gunn wrote. “What happened is not much to discuss at this point. I would like to invent and invite [Crow] to perform a few songs on July 30 at @thecotillion. It was a last minute decision, but I couldn’t help saying that there was no cause for personal morals and values due to unpleasant environmental experiences.
Gunn continued, “You don’t have to say it, it is, so I felt like I had to move on, it’s not the show to blame, they were there long before, nor anyone related to the show. I am grateful for [‘American Idol’] because gave me this platform and helped me reach all of you. sometimes things do happen and they do happen for some reason I guess. I feel upset as much as anything you could possibly get, and I’m sorry if I let anyone down, but I felt like all of these confrontations didn’t need to happen at the show, so I just had to move on, sometimes all we can do is move on !!! “
