Keith Urban's anguish over telling daughter about Vegas shooting

So I did know those people, in that way.

Urban took the stage to perform a poignant cover of "Bridge Over Troubled Water", and shared his difficulty in making sense of the shooting.

The words used by Nashville star Charles Esten to describe the city as "loving", "caring", "generous" and above all "family", were reflected in the fact that Vince Gill and Amy Grant, Keith Urban, Alison Krauss and all came to be with mourners, adding a bit of light to the darkness with poignant performances. "So I did know those people, in that way".

On Monday night, Nashville hosted a candlelight vigil paying tribute to those affected by the tragedy.

Esten closed Monday night's vigil by raising awareness for the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee's fund where 100 percent of donations will go toward the victims of the mass shooting. "I said, 'Yeah, really there was a lot of people killed last night.' And she said, 'Did you know any of them?' And I said, 'Not that I know of.' And then she said, 'Well then why are you so sad?' I said, 'Well, first of all, these were innocent people, horrifically taken'".

In San Lorenzo, a 45-minute-drive from San Juan, a bridge over a rushing river was destroyed by flash floods. To do that, you need to restore roads, a bare minimum of power, you need a bare minimum of communication.

"It's the one thing about country music that's always been at the centre of it-and that is community".

A video posted by a Twitter user showed a crowd of people fleeing from a nearby music festival after the shots were reported.

She described the site of the Route 91 Harvest concert to News 2.

The moving event was organized by Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, along with the CMA and Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. Those aren't the candles that matter, those aren't the lights that matter.

Country music is coming together with the city to pay homage to the victims. The previous Sunday, a lone gunman opened fire on worshippers at a church in the Nashville suburb of Antioch, killing one and wounding eight others. "You shouldn't have to worry about dying".
