Jason Aldean took the stage at our 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival on Friday (Sept. 21) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It was an emotional evening for the country music star. Almost a year after the tragic attack on the 2017 Route 91 Harvest music festival- Aldean was on stage when the shooting took place - he returned to Las Vegas to perform once again.
Not only did Aldean pay tribute to the first responders who rushed to the scene last year, he also met with a fellow survivor backstage. Aldean connected with Melissa Wall, a country music fan who traveled to Las Vegas in October 2017 to attend Route 91 Harvest, and it was a truly special moment for both of them.
