In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Keith Urban said he will be joining other artists to show solidarity and to condemn the senseless attack that took the lives of 58 concertgoers and injured about 500 individuals.

"[Country music] is a community and you really feel it in times like this, whether it’s weather-related or just insanity in Vegas-related - we really rally as a community," he told the publication.

“What happened in Vegas was our community, our family, so I think we all agreed it was really important for us to highlight their importance in our lives.”

Keith Urban also commended Jason Aldean for his courage to return onstage and perform for his fans after the traumatic experience. It is worth noting that the attack took place in the middle of Jason Aldean's final set for the Route 91 Country Music Festival in Las Vegas earlier this month.

The "Big Green Tractor" crooner even paid a visit to the victims along with his pregnant wife, Brittany, a week after the mass shooting. He also canceled his three-day show in California as a sign of respect to those who have lost their loved ones in the incident.

After a short breather from his tour, Jason Aldean appeared on "Saturday Night Live" to dedicate an emotional tribute to the victims and their families. For the episode, the singer performed his own rendition of "I Won't Back Down" by the late Tom Petty.

In light of the incident, Jason Aldean found comfort from his colleagues and fellow singers who made an effort to reach out to him after the traumatic episode.

Among those who checked on him was Keith Urban who commended the artist for being able to overcome the experience.
