Jason Aldean took to Twitter moments ago to announce he has canceled a few shows slated for this weekend.

In the post, Aldean says that out of respect for everyone involved in the mass shooting, canceling the shows is the right thing to do.

The mass shooter opened fire in Las Vegas, Nevada while Aldean was performing on stage during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

In total, 59 people lost their lives that night, and more than 500 people were injured in what will go down in history as the deadliest mass shooting in America.

The country star admitted that getting back up on the stage will be difficult and emotional.

Jason Aldean’s tour will continue on in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 12.
