Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, Aldean, Lee Brice, Dylan Scott and Luke Combs were among those who performed at the concert.

"Gun shots were ringing off of the stage rigging and road cases. No one knew where to," Owen wrote on Twitter.

"Praying for everyone here in Vegas," he wrote on Twitter. "I witnessed the most unimaginable event tonight. We are okay. Others aren't. Please pray"

He asked everyone to pray to God. 

Jason Aldean later posted an emotional post on Instagram asking for people to pray for the victims.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight," he wrote in his post. "It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night."
