Jason Aldean was on stage performing in Las Vegas when a lone gunman unleashed bullets from the 32nd floor of a hotel late Sunday, killing at least 59 people and injuring more than 500 others. Jason Aldean, his family and crew are safe, and released a couple statements after the tragedy.
In his most recent Instagram post, Aldean says: Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions. Scared, Anger, Heartache, Compassion and many others. I truely dont understand why a person would want to take the life of another. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see. This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in. At the end of the day we aren't Democrats or Republicans, Whites or Blacks, Men or Women. We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE! That is the only way we will ever get this Country to be better than it has ever been, but we have a long way to go and we have to start now. My heart aches for the victims and their families of this senseless act. I am so sorry for the hurt and pain everyone is feeling right now and there are no words i can say to to take that pain away. Just know u all are in my heart and my prayers as we all go through this together. Time to come together and stop the hate! #stopthehate #prayforlasvegas
In his first post, Aldean said: Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate
Jason Aldean's wife Brittany also weighed in: We are safe... our angels were definitely watching over us tonight. No words for what happened... Just horrific. Praying for everyone💔
