Reporting for The Guardian on Las Vegas shooting
A sad news day today for anyone covering the mass shooting in Las Vegas that left nearly 60 people dead and hundreds injured. The Guardian asked that I write a story to provide context into the event itself — A three-day country music festival produced by Live Nation outside the Mandalay Bay resort. My reporting included context into the rise of these mega country fests and included quotes from my interview with headliner Jason Aldean from an interview I had with him last year. Sadly, Aldean joins the short list of performers whose concerts were cut short by gun violence or explosives.
