Keith Urban Pays Tribute to Las Vegas Victims at Nashville Vigil

Active Shooter Reported Near Las Vegas Casino Hotel During Country Music Festival

Following the tragedy which occurred last night in Las Vegas, where a lone gunman shot and killed at least 58 people and injured 500 more during a country music event called Route 91 Harvest festival, Nashville will host a vigil at Ascend Amphitheater. "And so I did know those people in that way".

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, CCSD Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky, and Congresswoman Dina Titus attended a ceremony at City Hall.

Keith Urban, who told the crowd he was "shell-shocked" upon learning of the shooting Monday morning, sang loud enough to be heard across the Cumberland when delivering a devastatingly emotional version of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water", which included a brief, blink-and-you'd-have-missed-it tease of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" - a subtle tribute to the late rock legend. "I said, 'Yeah, a lot of people were killed last night, ' and she said, 'Did you know any of them?'"

The Country Music Association, in conjunction with the Nashville mayor's office and Nashville Visitors Corp., organized the vigil to honor the lives lost when a man opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 country music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival late Sunday night (Oct. 1) in Las Vegas.

He'd later welcome Grant to the stage who led the audience in a moment of silence and prayer. Grant asked as she began her prayer, thanking God for the gift of "each other, and that none of us is born alone or dies alone".

Krauss moved the crowd with her own angelic performance of "Amazing Grace", inspiring others to join her in singing.

"Death visited two places where people were simply doing things that give life meaning and give life joy". "You shouldn't have to worry about gunfire in those places". "And you certainly shouldn't have to worry about dying". But Esten reminded mourners that didn't matter. Why don't you go out and you be the light? "Because that is something the wind can not blow out and darkness can not quench", he concluded. "This community is not confined to the boundaries of Nashville", added Senior Vice President of Programming & Artist Relations for Opry Entertainment Sally Williams in reference to the country music family.
