It’s been 1 week since a deranged man took the lives of 58 country music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Country superstar Jason Aldean was on stage at the time, just a few songs into his setlist, when bullets were fired into the crowd of 22,000. Quickly, he retreated backstage to find his pregnant wife, Brittany, and to find safety with his crew. Fortunately for him, no one in his crew was harmed but it was obvious that he was deeply affected that his fans were injured and killed at this tragedy.
A post on Brittany’s Instagram account shows that her and Jason returned to Vegas today to visit with those injured in the attack.
Feels surreal being back in Vegas today. Visiting some of the strongest people we have ever met… fighting the toughest battle of them all… for their lives. You have helped us try to begin the healing process by seeing the strength each one of you have. Thank you for today. We will never forget. #vegasstrong 🙌🏼
Jason’s visit was also shared on Twitter by M. Escovedo of Desk Eight.

Just another reason why we love country music! Jason didn’t have to return to Vegas on his own time, especially with a baby on the way, but he did for the fans who were injured while watching him perform.
