The "Don't you wanna stay" singer visited patients and families at the University Medical Center.

Country singer Jason Aldean performed an emotional tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting on Saturday Night Live - less than a week after the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

The hospital thanked the singer in a Facebook post, writing that it "helped heal hearts and cheer those who were wounded in this tragedy".

Our extreme gratitude to Country Music Star Jason Aldean for visiting UMC today.

The night before, Jason paid tribute to the victims with a surprise performance of the late Tom Petty's 1989 hit "I Won't Back Down" on "Saturday Night Live".

UFC President Dana White further alleges that Aldean said he was too rattled by the shooting to perform and that he might not ever perform live again - only to perform at Saturday Night Live in New York City on the same night as the UFC event, TMZ reports.

His wife Brittany Aldean took to Instagram, posting a chilling picture of the couple holding each other while looking towards the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. "Like everyone, I'm struggling to understand what happened that night and how to pick up the pieces and start to heal". "We're gonna work through these tough times together, all the way". "Because when America is at its best, our bond and our spirit, it's unbreakable".

"No, we won't back down", sang Jason Aldean as part of his tribute to Las Vegas shooting victims. She wrote in the caption that seeing the strength of victims helped the couple "try to begin the healing process". Aldean was performing on stage when a gunman opened fire on concert goers, leaving more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured.
