Jason Aldean Pays Tribute To Las Vegas Victims And Tom Petty On SNL

Last night Saturday Night Live on NBC paid tribute to victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting and the late legendary Tom Petty. Jason Aldean opened the show with a short and emotional monologue of healing and unity and said ” I’m Jason Aldean. This week we witnessed one of the worst tragedies in American history. Like everyone I’m struggling to understand what happened that night and how to pick up the pieces and start to heal.” Aldean sang the Tom Petty classic “I Won’t Back Down.” Jason was performing live at the Route 91 Harvest country musical festival Sunday October 1 in Las Vegas when a gunman killed 58 people and injured nearly 500. Petty suffered a heart attack last Sunday and passed away the following day in hospital.
