More than 50 people are confirmed dead and more than 400 injured after a “lone wolf” gunman opened fire during Jason Aldean’s set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last night (Oct. 1).
Many people in the country music community have been reaching out via social media to share their prayers and messages of love, hope and unity. We included some of the messages below from Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Thomas Rhett and more.
Woke up to such horrible news. We are praying for the victims and their families. May the Lord bring some comfort to them.
