Country Duo Big & Rich Describe Horrific Las Vegas Shooting: ‘It Was Hysteria’ (Exclusive)
Reflecting on the horrific ordeal, Kenny said he was still in shock about everything he saw unfold. Praising the first responders who sprung into action, he added that the pair’s “hearts weep,” for those who lost loved ones or were still fighting for their lives.
The musician remained adamant that the duo would not let fear deter them from future performances.
“Fear will not overtake us,” he said. “We will continue to march forward with our music. I know that all the artists out there, we are all so concerned right now, first and foremost about our fans, but [we] will not let this stop us in any way.”
“We will go forth every day and shine the light of love as bright as we possibly can against all the darkness and outrageous things like this that might ever come upon our path in life,” he continued. “And we will continue to walk in God’s light the best we can.”
Following Sunday’s shooting, the music industry was further shaken by news of legendary rocker Tom Petty’s hospitalization. With Petty’s life reportedly hanging in the balance on Monday, Rich shared his well-wishes for the singer.
