On Oct. 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire on a crowd watching Jason perform at 10 p.m. local time. The shooter was located dead at a nearby hotel, after he killed 60 victims and injured 867 survivors.

Brittany reflected on the horrifying incident on the shooting’s three-year anniversary.

ROUTE 91🧡 On one hand it seems like an eternity ago, a nightmare you try to forget. On the other hand it’s vividness makes it seem like it was yesterday. 3 years ago… I was 8 months pregnant (had Memphis 2 months to the day from the shooting) and my husband was prepping like any other day to entertain thousands of fans. I used to live in Vegas so I had a bunch of friends at the show… little did we know our lives would change forever. The sound, the chaos, the overwhelming sadness and heartache… it’s something that never leaves you. They call us the “Route 91 Family” in my opinion because we are forever bonded. An experience that thankfully only certain people know. We have LOVED meeting so many of you who were effected on this day, years ago. Our hearts still break for the families who lost a loved one💔 We are thinking of each and every one of you today, and everyday… and to the men and women who ran towards the bullets to protect all of us… WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL🖤💙 #vegasstrong #countrystrong

Jason also marked the day calling git the “worst night of our lives.”

“Not a day goes by that we don’t think about the people who lost their lives and the families who have forever been affected by it. October 1st will always be a day for us that is extremely hard to relive. To everyone in the Route 91 family, we love u guys and we couldn’t have gotten through it without you,” he added.
