Country Artists Share Las Vegas Shooting Reactions

The country music community is still reeling from the horrific events Sunday during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

Chris Janson, Keith Urban and Dierks Bentley share their reactions and thoughts on healing country music and its fans.

Chris Janson talks about how he reacted to news of the Las Vegas massacre.

"I didn't really talk a lot yesterday. I didn't really talk a whole lot last night. I just kind of tucked away and that's about it."

In the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, Keith Urban says festivals and shows have to continue.

"We play music. People want to come and be a part of that. And all we can do is take all the precautions we can for us and the audience. But to not do it is letting all that hate win."

In the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, Dierks Bentley says this is a time for togetherness.

"The more that we can all get together, the community, we all kind of need that. And we're back here in Nashville. I can't imagine what our friends in Las Vegas are going through. Of course our fans across the country. It's just a real time of needing to be together and just working through it together."
