Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Chris Young, Jake Owen and Maren Morris were a few of the country stars who turned to social media yesterday (Monday, October 1st) to remember last year's mass shooting during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. The tragedy killed 58 and injured several hundred others.
Jason tweeted, “Thinkin’ about our Route 91 family today. #vegasstrong.”
Tim tweeted, “Please join my family and the entire country music community, at 10:05am PT / 1:05pm ET for a moment of silence to remember those lost and all who were affected one year ago today by the Route 91 tragedy. #CountryStrong #VegasStrong.”
Chris' message read, “I don’t open up very often so I hope everyone takes this message as I mean it. It has been a year since #Route91 happened . . . so much loss for no reason during something that should have been a happy moment for everyone present,” he said. “I was there, I’m lucky to be alive, and I will never forget the loss that so many had to suffer through that day and all the days since. I’ll never forget having to call my family saying I hoped to see them again. I love you all. Cherish every day you have.”
Maren tweeted, “Dear Hate, I hate to tell you that love is gonna conquer all . . . ” Thinking of the fans we lost a year ago. You’ll always be the 3 chords and the truth. #Route91
Jake tweeted, “I will never forget the evening of October 1st, 2017. A year ago today people were loving life. They were singing along. Families and friends. 58 lives were lost and thousands were injured and lives changed forever. You will always be in my heart and on my mind.”
