Country Singer Who Played the Las Vegas Festival Where 58 People Were Killed Just Came Out Swinging Against the NRA
In September 2017, at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, a gunman opened fire from a hotel window onto crowds of fans there to see their favorite country music artists. 58 people were killed and an estimated more than 800 injured.
Two nights before the shooting, country music artist Eric Church headlined the festival. According to an article in Rolling Stone, Church was back at his home in Tennessee when the shooting happened. He got a text with the news and turned on his TV.
