Jake Owen Recounts Las Vegas Festival Shooting

(Radio.com) Country singer Jake Owen performed at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival Sunday night (Oct 1) in Las Vegas right before Jason Aldean took the stage. During Aldean's set, a gunman opened fire, killing at least 50 and injuring over 400, and Owen was there watching his friend perform.

"I was on the stage. I had just walked up on the stage with a couple friends of mine, including Luke Combs, another artist who had played earlier, and we were literally standing 50 feet from where Jason was on stage, and all of a sudden, you heard what sounded - it was kind of a thing where you were like, 'Was that gunfire?' - and it got faster and faster, almost like it was an automatic rifle," Owen said in a call this morning to the Today Show.

"You could hear it ringing off the rafters off the top of the stage," he continued. "That's when you saw people fleeing. At that point, everyone onstage just started running everywhere possible. And it was pretty chaotic, for sure."

The country star couldn't get to his bus, so he looked for the nearest cover. 'I kind of just ran like everyone else," he said. "At one point, I was crouched down behind a cop car with about 20 other people that had come to the show, and everyone's asking if everyone's okay. There's blood on people, and you could see a couple folks on the street that looked like they'd been shot lying there. It was chaotic. It was literally like a movie that you feel like you've seen before that's not real life."

The country singer stressed how frightening the situation was. "We tend to - we live this life of not being scared, which I think is great, but you know, this is reality these days. This stuff's really happening. We were all scared." Read more here.

Lorde Teases New Music Via Cryptic Post

(Radio.com) Fans waited four years for Melodrama, Lorde's followup to her breakthrough debut Pure Heroine. And while they've had months to play "Green Light" and "Homemade Dynamite" on loop, it appears new Lorde material is on the way soon.

The singer, who is currently on tour promoting Melodrama, tweeted a cryptic teaser with the words "will u love me? will u?" Attached is a low-quality clip of new music, apparently taken at home or in the studio on a smartphone.

"I just want your love' I just want your heartbreaking love," Lorde sings. It's not clear whether the song corresponds to an upcoming project--a movie soundtrack contribution, tour single or just a one-off new track. Listen to the teaser of Lorde's new song here.

Justin Bieber Meltdown Worse Than People Realized Says Manager

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber has come a long way since the dark days of 2014, when the singer was arrested for driving under the influence and seemed to create mischief wherever he went. Manager Scooter Braun was by his side through it all and recently opened up about how serious Bieber's meltdown really was.

"It was worse than people realized," Braun told the Wall Street Journal. "I failed him day after day. We were living in hell because he was in such a dark place….I have inconveniences, and other people have problems. Mine feel important, but they're not. They're not life or death. Justin's stuff got to a point where it was a problem."

Braun says their relationship "really struggled." Nevertheless, the manager (whose clients include Ariana Grande and Carly Rae Jepsen) said his job was to be Bieber's "rock" on his journey. According to Braun, naysayers in the music business thought Bieber's moment in the spotlight was over for good.

"Some of the biggest people in the industry, people invested in Justin's career, told me, 'It's over. Focus on something else. That kid is done,'" he said. "I made a promise to him when he was 13 that I would never give up on him. I plan on keeping that promise." Read more here.

Luke Combs Gives First-Person Account of Las Vegas Shooting

(Radio.com) Country star Luke Combs called in to the TODAY show Monday morning (Oct. 2) to give his first-person account of the tragic shooting at the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas.

Combs explained that he was onstage watching Jason Aldean with his manager when they heard the barrage of gunfire, at first thinking it was part of the onstage pyrotechnics.

"We were actually onstage when it happened," he revealed. "The first burst happened, and still at that point I was under the impression that something was going wrong with the pyrotechnics. It wasn't for a few minutes after that when pandemonium set in after the bursts kept happening. I've been up all night watching the news and they said it was maybe four or five clips. But it had to be upwards of ten to twelve, at least, from what I heard personally. I'm so thankful to be here, and my thoughts are out with everybody else.

"We didn't know it was coming from the hotel, and I had to made a beeline back towards the main stage to get out," he related to hosts Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer. "My bus was parked across the street, so we ran across the street and got on the bus. Luckily, we were able to locate the rest of our band and crew in ten minutes or so."

The singer went on to explain that he didn't personally didn't see any injured people, but that members of his band and crew did. Read more here.
