Aldean, who was performing onstage when shots began to ring out over the Route 91 Harvest concert, posted a message immediately following the attack but followed up on Monday night reflecting on worst mass shooting in our country’s history.

“Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions. Scared, Anger, Heartache, Compassion and many others. I truely dont (sic) understand why a person would want to take the life of another,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

“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,” he continued. “At the end of the day we arent 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!”
