Aldean says he hopes heal­ing can start for those af­fected by a mass shoot­ing at a Las ve­gas mu­sic fes­ti­val in his first in­ter­view since the oc­to­ber shoot­ing.

speak­ing on nbC’s To­day show, aldean, who was on stage when a gun­man opened fire on the crowd at the route 91 Har­vest Fes­ti­val, said he ini­tially thought a speaker had blown when he heard a sound like a crack­ling over his in-ear mon­i­tors. after the shoot­ing con­tin­ued, his band and se­cu­rity started telling him to run.

Fifty-eight peo­ple were killed and hun­dreds more in­jured. aldean did not ad­dress gun con­trol in the in­ter­view. He says he will never for­get the ex­pe­ri­ence, but he hopes “ev­ery­body can start to heal.”
