On Saturday Jason Aldean made his first public appearance since the tragedy in Las Vegas, paying a double tribute on Saturday Night Live.
Jason began the cold open by addressing those affected by the Las Vegas shooting:
“I’m Jason Aldean. This week we witnessed one of the worst tragedies in American history. Like everyone, I’m struggling to understand what happened that night, and how to pick up the pieces and start to heal. So many people are hurting and they’re our children, parents, brothers, sisters, friends. They’re all part of our family. I want to say to them, we hurt for you and we hurt with you. You can be sure we’re going to walk through these tough times together, every step of the way, because when America is at its best, our bond and our spirit, it’s unbreakable.”
He then performed a rendition of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ hit “I Won’t Back Down,” honoring Tom Petty and the Las Vegas victims.
Yesterday Jason and his wife returned to Las Vegas to visit with some of those wounded in the shooting.
After canceling shows this past weekend to honor the Las Vegas victims, Jason will be back on tour this week.
