NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Country singer Jason Aldean has urged unity after Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that claimed the lives of at least 59 people and injured hundreds.

Aldean was performing when shots rang out at the Route 91 Harvest Festival just off the Las Vegas Strip.

The singer said in a new Instagram post that he’s experienced a wide range of emotions since the shooting and said it’s “time to come together and stop the hate!”   

 

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 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! 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
