Transcript for Country star Jake Owen reacts to Las Vegas shooting
We talked about how the shots rang out when Jason aldean was on stage. Jake Owen was also on scene. Jake, what can you tell us? I was on the stage watching Jason play. I had just come off stage previously. Standing there you could hear the bullets hit the roof of the stage and people started fleeing everywhere. You can hear people screaming.

I keep saying it was like a bad movie that you've seen before but never thought it would be real life. You were actually right on the stage? I was on the stage watching. Jason turned around and started running to get out of the way once he realized gunshots were being fired. The crowd started running. I mean it was -- it was a bad scene. There was people literally being shot. You could see blood everywhere. It was something I don't ever -- wouldn't want to ever see again or wish upon anyone else to see. It seemed like -- Jason played for a couple minutes then he dropped the guy titar and ran off stage. When we're up there playing, we have in ear monitors in our ears.
