LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KXAN) — The Route 91 Harvest Festival brought together dozens of country musicians to perform to thousands of country music fans over the span of three days. When Sunday’s mass shooting happened, Jason Aldean was closing out the show. Jake Owen performed before Jason Aldean took the main stage. He has given interviews saying he was less than 50 feet away from Aldean when the shots rang out.

The Route 91 Harvest festival also changed its website to honor the victims of the shooting. As of Tuesday, it displayed an orange ribbon wrapped around a sign that says “91.”
