Amy is with us now. A lot of reaction pouring in? That's right as you might imagine, the music world stunned by this horistic shooting. The route 91 harvest festival supposed to be a three-day celebration of country music in Vegas but this morning that community is reeling. Overnight tragedy striking the route 91 concert festival. A lone gunman opening fire on the sold out crowd and quickly reacts began pouring in from the stars featured in that event. Jason aldean performing on stage when those fateful shots began. ??? Just minutes before his performance he talked about his excitement. We're looking forward to being a good night for sure. Reporter: After the incident aldean posting on Instagram tonight has been beyond horrific. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. Performer Nick Miller watching it all unfold from the crowd. At first I heard a sound that I thought was just fireworks and then it turned into continuous machine gun fire. Reporter: Jake Owen on stage minutes before aldean. Gunshots, pray to god. Two hours later, I witnessed the most unimaginable event tonight. We are okay. Others aren't. Please pray. Music's biggest stars offering support this morning. Mariah Carey saying my thoughts are with the victims and their families. Fans fleeing this chaotic scene reminiscent of previous mass Manchester, England, after an Ariana grande concert killing 22 and injuring 116 others. And this attack in front of a sold out crowd in Paris, the gunman opening fire killing 89 people trapped inside the Bataclan concert hall and Jason aldean's pregnant wife Brittany was speaking out saying she is safe, that angels were definitely watching over her and says she has no words for what happened and praying for the horror for everyone involved but we know this is the largest by the way of the three-day crowd that was expected so we know who was in that crowd, country music fans are the best. It's so incredibly tragic. Couldn't agree more.
