The nation woke up this morning to the devastating news that 58 people have been killed and more than 500 are injured after a gunman opened fire at a huge country music festival in Las Vegas. Some of the biggest names in country music performed at this three-day sold-out festival.

In what is described as, the "Three Day Neon Sleepover", this annual country music festival sells out months in advance. It's an event that country music fans look forward to and know that big acts will take the stage with the lights of Las Vegas as the backdrop. It turned into a festival that nobody will ever forget and our heart breaks.

Luke Combs played just before Jason Aldean took the stage and stuck around to watch him perform. He spoke to NBC News to discuss what happened next.

 

Jake Owen performed last night and was in the middle of the chaos and spoke to FOX News about the tragedy.

Big and Rich hung out back stage after their performance, with singer Kaya Jones, to watch Jason perform and with a broken heart Kaya shares their story from last night.

Dee Jay Silver kicked off day 3 of the festival and was staying for the after party.

These were the festival acts yesterday and I can't even imagine what they must be going through. Our thoughts and prayers and with all of the victims, their family and friends, the first responders, hospital staff, concert goers and the entire country music community.
