With information accessible on the internet, even our country music friends touring overseas have managed to stay aware of all of the devastation that followed the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1. And while they may feel insulated from much of what happened, that doesn’t mean their hearts aren’t with those who are suffering.

Lady Antebellum paused for a moment while they were preparing for a performance on the U.K. leg of their “You Look Good Tour” to embrace each other with a prayer for peace. What they may not realize, though, is that by sharing it on Facebook as they did, they’re giving comfort to hurting world.

Lady A’s Hillary Scott addressed the band and crew gathered in a circle and holding hands, saying, “We just wanted to take a second to just formally, and with unity, acknowledge what happened a couple of days ago.”

She added, “We’re not going to live in fear. This is a safe space because we’re all here together, and because, not only have I and our family and so many people here, [but] so many people we don’t even know have prayed for us.”

Hillary’s husband, drummer Chris Tyrrell, then offered up a prayer for peace, not just for the band and crew, but also for the fans who were attending the show that night and the remainder of the shows on the tour.

Lady Antebellum, along with Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young, is in the United Kingdom through Oct. 10. They then return to the U.S. with two more dates on the calendar before they break for the holidays.
