Since the concert and especially after his appearance on the Late Late Show, Reynolds has been written about in Billboard and Variance, among other publications. Warner Brothers tweeted out his song.
“The past couple of days there has definitely been a lot of attention and it’s very bittersweet obviously,” he says. He’d just gotten back home from L.A. the night before.
How’s he doing now?
“It’s painful, really painful, but there’s also been a lot of growth. I’ve become closer to some people and it’s really beautiful to watch people come together,” Reynolds says.
“After a tragedy, so many people become inspired to be kinder, better people, better friends. There’s a lot of beauty that‘s come out of it and also a lot of pain.”
