Jason Aldean Releases Statement About Las Vegas Shooting

(Radio.com) Jason Aldean was performing onstage in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 59 people and wounding more than 500 others.

The singer posted a lengthy Instagram message reflecting on the tragedy and paying tribute to victims. Aldean, a husband and father, admitted that he's afraid to raise his kids in a world that feels violent and dangerous.

"Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions," he wrote. "Scared, Anger, Heartache, Compassion and many others. I truely don't understand why a person would want to take the life of another. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see. This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in."

Aldean offered a unifying message for the deeply divided United States and urged people to show kindness to others. "At the end of the day we aren't Democrats or Republicans, Whites or Blacks, Men or Women," he wrote. "We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE! That is the only way we will ever get this Country to be better than it has ever been, but we have a long way to go and we have to start now." Read more here.

Miley Cyrus Honors Las Vegas Victims During 'Fallon' Performance

(Radio.com) Miley Cyrus kicked off Miley Week on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (Oct. 2) with a powerful performance of Dido's "No Freeman." Backed by a full band that included Adam Sandler on guitar and backing vocals, the singer's cover struck a chord in the aftermath of Sunday night's (Oct. 1) deadly shooting in Las Vegas, which took the lives of at least 59 people and injured more than 500.

In an interview with Fallon following her performance, she explained why she decided to begin her week-long residency on the show with that particular track.

"There is no love without freedom. I think about that when these tragic events happen," she said. "What is music if we can't go see our favorite artist perform because we're scared of violence, or we're scared of losing someone that we love to go to a concert or go see a film? I think right now we're supposed to be 'Land of the Free' but we can't have freedom if we're constantly living in fear. Never bow down to bullies and stand up for what's right. Constantly share hope instead of encouraging any more fear."

The singer closed the show with her poignant song "The Climb." The afternoon before the performance, Cyrus tweeted that her Tonight Show appearance would strive to help heal a wounded nation and encourage peace. Read more here.

Keith Urban, Vince Gill Lead Nashville Vigil After Vegas Tragedy

(Radio.com) Keith Urban, Vince Gill and Nashville's Charles Esten were on hand in Nashville Monday night (October 2) to take part in a vigil in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting at Route 91 Harvest festival that left 59 dead and over 500 wounded.

At the start of the vigil, Esten likened the country community to that of a family. "Country music, they call it an industry," he said. "They call it a community sometimes and it is. But what it really turns out to be is a family. We're all a part of that family and Nashville is that family's home." He added, "Music can bring healing and that is why we're here tonight. For the first smallest steps at bringing some light to this darkness."

Urban, Gill, Amy Grant and Alison Krauss also took the stage at Nashville's Ascend Amphitheater for an evening of music and prayer. "I'm honored to be here as a voice for the innocent. May we never lose our voice for innocent people," Billboard reports Gill said before playing "Go Rest High on That Mountain."

He'd later welcome Grant to the stage who led the audience in a moment of silence and prayer. Urban took the stage to perform a poignant cover of "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and shared his difficulty in making sense of the shooting.

"I started this morning by finding out about it and being shell-shocked all morning, getting my kids ready for school," he confessed. "My 9-year-old, as I was driving her to school this morning, said to me, 'Dad, you seem quiet.' I said, 'Yeah, a lot of people [were] killed last night.' She said, 'Did you know any of them?' and I said, 'Not that I know of.' Then she said, 'Then why are you so sad?' I said, 'First of all, these were innocent people horrifically taken, and secondly, they're like family.' It's the one thing about country music that's always been the center of it it is community. So I did know those people, in that way." Watch the Nashville vigil for Las Vegas here.

Ed Sheeran Reveals Inspiration Behind 'Perfect'

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran has opened up to Radio.com in a new interview about his girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, and how she inspired his new hit single, "Perfect."

"I like the situation I'm in at the moment, it's pretty great," Sheeran revealed during the exclusive interview. When asked if Seaborn could be "the one," the singer was unequivocal in his response.

"Undoubtedly, undoubtedly," he said. "But I think if you ever enter into a long-term relationship and you have a doubt, then you shouldn't be in the long-term relationship."

Sheeran went on to reveal that he never thought he'd find himself with someone from his high school days: "I actually always thought I'd end up dating like an actress or something, someone in the industry," he explained. "But I don't think I'm that kind of person. I'm a hometown boy."

He went on to detail how Seaborn inspired the song "Perfect" after a wild night at the Ibiza home of his friend, James Blunt. "We got really hammered and took our shoes off and danced on his lawn and then jumped in the pool," Sheeran revealed. "And then the next day I was like, 'that's a cool story,' so I put it in a song." Watch Ed Sheeran explain how it all went down in the video here.

Cardi B Believes She Can Copy Any Rapper's Flow

(Radio.com) Cardi B made history with her chart-topping hit "Bodak Yellow," but critics have accused the MC of ripping off other rappers' flows--especially Kodak Black. During an appearance at South Carolina's Fall Ball, Cardi addressed the accusations head-on. According to NME, the rapper said she has a right to "body" anyone's style she wants to.

Addressing an audience in South Carolina Cardi said: "And for anybody that telling me, 'Oh b- you copied Kodak flow, you copied this and that flow,' So what b-? So what?"

Snoop Dogg Suggests Controversial Quarterback For Raiders

(Radio.com) It's no secret that Snoop Dogg is a big football fan. While the rapper is famous for supporting the Pittsburgh Steelers, he's turned his focus on the Oakland Raiders, who saw their franchise quarterback Derek Carr go down over the weekend (Oct. 1) with a fractured back.

As the Raiders struggled in their loss to the Denver Broncos with backup QB EJ Manuel, Snoop took to Twitter to suggest that controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick should be the one to step in during Carr's absence.

"If Al Davis was alive this what would b next," Snoop Dogg captioned a post featuring a photo of Kaepernick in a Raiders jersey. Al Davis was the legendary owner of the Raiders notorious for making bold, progressive moves both on and off the field. He was the first NFL owner to hire an African-American coach, Art Shell, and a female chief executive, Amy Trask. See Snoop's tweet here.
