Jake Owen had a sad reminder of the Vegas tragedy last week when he got his tour bus back for the first time. When he stepped onboard, a familiar sight quickly took his breath away. On a blackboard, still written out in chalk, was his schedule for the day of the tragic event.
The country music singer shared a picture of the board on Instagram. He let his fans know that his manager wrote out his schedule on that board daily. Now, he was re-living that tragic day all over again by seeing this familiar reminder.
We may never get over the tragic events that took place on Oct. 1 in Las Vegas. And, it’s likely that we will continue to see sad reminders like this one in the coming months. In the meantime, country artists, such as Owen and Jason Aldean, are doing their part to help the victims and the world heal from this tragedy.
Aldean just released a cover of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down,” and is planning to donate proceeds from the cover to help the victims of the tragedy. A benefit concert is also planned next month to help raise funds for the victims of the shooting. Originally the concert was intended to help those recovering from hurricane damage. Now, however, organizers have added a second concert, and promised funds would go to both the hurricane victims and the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
Currently, there are still those in the hospital recovering from the injuries the gunman inflicted on them that night. And, we still don’t have the full details on the motive behind the attack.
An investigation is still ongoing into the events of that night. However, officials seem stumped as to why the gunman chose to kill 58 people and injure more than 500 people. Hopefully, something will eventually surface that will shed some light on the tragedy.
