Aldean, the headliner on the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Festival, was interviewed by People on Facebook Live about his excited fans and upcoming set.

“The reason you come to Vegas is to have a good time, throw down and party a little bit, so that’s why we’re here,” the 40-year-old said. “We’re looking forward to it being a good night for sure.”

“We try to go out every night, and we try to give everybody what they paid for. And they may only catch one show a year and it may be this one,” he added. “So you want to make sure that every show you try to go out and turn it up a notch and just give it everything you got. So we try to do it every night like that.”

Talking about playing to the massive crowd, he said, “The initial response you get from the crowd when you hit the stage, to me that’s what sort of lights the fire for the night. So when you come on you hear the initial reaction from the crowd, to me that sets the tone for the show. I think that’s everything. That’s what it’s all about.”
