Lady Antebellum was across the pond for their You Look Good World Tour in Manchester, England when the mass shootings in Las Vegas took place during the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
The trio, who was taking the stage for their first show since the shootings, was set to perform at the Manchester Arena, where a terrorist attack bombing occurred months earlier during the Ariana Grande concert.
Emotionally impacted by the events that took place, Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley gathered with their team before their concert to uplift each other in prayer.
As Lady A’s song “Hello World” plays in the background of the video, Hillary Scott speaks about the incident.
“We just wanted to take a second to just formerly and with unity, acknowledge what happened a couple of days ago—how all of us here are dealing with it. We know people who were there and everybody on stage, off stage in Vegas and being so far away from home, we are not going to live in fear here. This is a safe space because we are all here together and because not only have I and our family and so many people here, so many people we don’t even know, have prayed for us before we got here,” she said choking back tears.
It was then that she asked her husband, Chris Tyrell, to lead the team in a beautiful prayer.
