On Oct. 1, 2017, 58 people were killed and hundreds wounded during night three of the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. One year later, the country music community is gathering together to reflect on the 365 days since the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States.

The tragedy took place during Jason Aldean's headlining set where he was performing for more than 22,000 people. A gunman opened fire from his hotel room that night on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay changing the lives of country fans forever. 

Join country radio, record labels, publishers, among others at 1:05 p.m. ET/ 10:05 a.m. PT today as we take a moment of silence (58 seconds). According to TIME, the "Vegas strip will go dark Monday night as Sin City observes the first anniversary" while "flags across Nevada will also reportedly fly at half-staff" as well.
