It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since the Route 91 tragedy in Las Vegas. That was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history and it shook the country world. To honor the 58 victims, at 12:05 P.M. CT, country radio stations, labels, fans and supporters held a moment of silence. Country artists are also remembering the victims and reflecting on the horrific tragedy by taking to social media.
Here are some of the posts by country artists on the anniversary of the Route 91 tragedy. We are sharing these in hopes that you’ll also remember these lives lost and continue to remember that love will conquer all.
I will never forget the evening of October 1st, 2017. A year ago today people were loving life. They were singing along. Families and friends. 58 lives were lost and thousands were injured and lives changed forever. You will always be in my heart and on my mind.

We sang God Bless America on the #ROUTE91HARVEST stage 90 mins before the bullets flew one year ago today. Remembering the killed and wounded, and reminding myself every heartbeat is a gift from God. Stay Vigilant, America. #SonnyMelton @KayaJones @deejaysilver1 #VegasStrong

I wanted to take a moment to honor the memories of those we lost, and those still healing from last year’s tragedy. Last night we honored the heroic fans who sacrificed everything in the midst of uncertainty. #VegasStrong pic.twitter.com/2LLiabEtUD
