Sadly, nothing can be done to bring back the innocent victims who lost their lives in the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas on Oct. 1. But country music stars have been doing their part to comfort those who are still shaken over the tragedy, which claimed the lives of at least 58 people and injured hundreds more.
One country music fan who attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival, where 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock took aim on unsuspecting concertgoers from his high-rise hotel room, tweeted out snapshots of her time at the three-day event.
But she admitted she had mixed feelings about sharing her concert photos with the public.
“I felt guilty posting pictures from Vegas,” Twitter user Noemi Corral wrote on Oct. 11, alongside a photo montage featuring snaps of shows she attended at the festival. “But I’m trying to [accept] that the good time we had was still good regardless of the bad.”
Country music superstar Maren Morris, who was featured in one of Noemi’s images, jumped to defend her fan’s decision.
“You do you, and we love you,” the “Dear Hate” singer sweetly wrote, after re-tweeting Noemi.
Maren wasn’t the only artist to console a heartbroken fan either. Country duo Brothers Osborne, which performed at Route 91 on Sept. 29, also shared some kindhearted words with follower Kailee.
After Kailee told the duo that she was glad to finally see them in concert, despite the horrific massacre that, she said, “changed me forever,” they wrote back, “Each day will get better, Kailee. Thanks for coming to see us. We truly appreciate everyone that does ❤️.”
We’re glad to see that country stars and their fans can help each other heal in the wake of this terrible tragedy.
