Jason Aldean took to his Instagram today (10/1) to pay tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas Route 91 festival shooting that took place three years today.
Jason, who was performing on stage when shots were fired during the festival, posted, “Hard to believe it’s been 3 years since Route 91. That night was probably the worst night of our lives and not a day goes by that we don’t think about the people who lost their lives and the families who have forever been affected by it. October 1st will always be a day for us that is extremely hard to relive. To everyone in the Route 91 family, we love u guys and we couldn’t have gotten through it without you. #CountryStrong #Route91family #VegasStrong.”
Aldean’s wife Brittany also posted to Instagram, saying, “On one hand it seems like an eternity ago, a nightmare you try to forget. On the other hand it’s vividness makes it seem like it was yesterday. 3 years ago… I was 8 months pregnant (had Memphis 2 months to the day from the shooting) and my husband was prepping like any other day to entertain thousands of fans. I used to live in Vegas so I had a bunch of friends at the show… little did we know our lives would change forever. The sound, the chaos, the overwhelming sadness and heartache… it’s something that never leaves you. They call us the “Route 91 Family” in my opinion because we are forever bonded. An experience that thankfully only certain people know. We have LOVED meeting so many of you who were effected on this day, years ago. Our hearts still break for the families who lost a loved one. We are thinking of each and every one of you today, and everyday… and to the men and women who ran towards the bullets to protect all of us… WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL #vegasstrong #countrystrong.”
