One week after the world heard about the tragic events that took place at Route 92 Harvest Music Festival, where 59 people lost their lives and over 600 were injured, Luke Bryan is taking the stage during his 2017 Farm Tour to remember the victims.
Luke was on stage in Fort Wayne, Indiana, when he removed his hat to talk about the mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas on Oct. 1. Fort Wayne was the first stop of the Farm Tour since the mass shooting took place. Bryan wrapped up the tour on Oct. 7 in Centrailia, Mo.
“This past week’s was one of the toughest week’s I’ve ever had in my life and probably the worst week in the history of country music,” he told fans from the stage.
As Bryan continued, the crowd cheered him on and began chanting USA! USA! USA!
“We’re gonna remember all those folks and we’re going to remember that being here tonight is a step in the right direction for getting us where we want to be,” Bryan continued. “I want to think about one of my best friend in the world, Mr. Jason Aldean, who’s had an unbelievable week. Jake Owen, Chris Young, Adam Craig and Luke Combs and all those boys and all their crew. Y’all keep them in your thoughts and prayers for them just being a part of something that they could’ve never imagined. Let’s think of all those first responders out there, running in. Let’s think about being a better country, being better people. ”
“Let’s take a quick few seconds, everybody bow their heads,” Bryan said before taking a moment of silence.
