Jason Aldean Relives Vegas Shooting in New Interview

Musician Sought Shelter Between Tour Buses

Six weeks after the deadliest mass shooting in USA history, Jason Aldean is speaking out about the events that took place on October 1st in Las Vegas, while he was onstage closing out the Route 91 Harvest festival.

At first, Jason Aldean thought the popping he heard through his in-ear monitor on October 1 was a technical glitch, possibly a blown speaker or faulty amp.

Aldean revealed that at first, he thought it was merely a blown speaker that was causing the noise he was hearing, and he spent the first moments of the shooting communicating with the sound engineer to get the problem fixed.

But once the disturbing crackling sound kicked in again, the 40-year-old singer got frustrated that the sound continued to interrupt his music. "It lasted longer the second time". "I was actually kind of getting aggravated, so I looked over at my monitor guy that's on the side of the stage as if to say, 'What is that?"

Aldean described the scene as hectic and said everyone was scrambling and "you just didn't know what was going on". I think everybody just kind of panicked and didn't really know where to go or what to do, because I mean we're not in that situation. "And some of the stuff you never get over, but I hope it gets better for everybody as time goes on".

"Panic was probably the best way I could describe it", he said.

Aldean canceled shows following the shooting, but later resumed his tour. And so, I'm kind of looking around like, 'What is that?' [and] trying to figure out what it is. "And you just didn't know what was going on", the star shared. "It was just kind of insane".

A week after the shooting, Aldean appeared on "Saturday Night Live" to perform Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down" - Petty had died that week - and released a recording of the song to benefit the Direct Impact Fund, which supports victims of the shooting. But fully processing the tragedy, which claimed 58 lives and injured more than 500, has taken much more time, he explained.

Country music stars gathered at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday for a benefit concert, raising more than $4 million for victims of the Las Vegas shooting and people affected by recent hurricanes.

"Honestly, being back on stage probably helped more than anything".

In the end, he's hoping the experience will bring Americans together.

"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 said.

Aldean also opened up about what he witnessed the night of the shooting.
