Aldean hopes for heal­ing af­ter Ve­gas shoot­ing

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICKOFF -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Coun­try star Ja­son Aldean says he hopes that 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.”
