Jason Aldean made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to open their show.

Aldean started the cold open by by saying that we have witnessed one of the worst tragedies to date in America.  He also said he, like everyone else, is still trying to understand it all.  Aldean also added that people affected are "part of our family".

He said:

"So I wanna say to them, 'We hurt for you and we hurt with you.  But you can be sure that we're gonna walk through these tough times together, every step of the way.  Because when America is at its best, our bond, and our spirit . . . it's unbreakable." - Jason Aldean
