He says this shooting feels more like an attack on the country music community rather than just a shooting a bar. He says the country music community is about coming together and supporting one another.
He took a break from his show because he wanted to inform country music fans about what happened.
"Our show, we try to be light and fun, and help people get off to work with a chuckle, but when something hits close to home like in our country music community, we felt we needed to talk about it,” Shannon says.
Shannon also mentioned he fears these types of incidents will become more normal. He says no one should ever be afraid when trying to enjoy a fun night with country music.
