Not long after the horrific shooting, Aldean was back onstage performing on Saturday Night Live. He also resumed his tour shortly after the incident and went back to Las Vegas to visit with those that were injured at the concert.
"Honestly, being back on stage probably helped us more than anything, which is crazy,” Aldean noted.
It's the 40-year-old singer's hope that in light of such a tragedy that everyone can have more compassion. "I feel like at the end of the day there's so much focus on, you know, politics, and race, and all these other things,” he explained. “At the end of the day, we're all in this together. We spend so much time arguing with each other, and not enough time like working on the issue that's really the problem."
