Bastrop country singer finds faith after Las Vegas massacre

MONROE, La (KNOE) - Country singer Dylan Scott made his way back to ARKLAMISS AND under the florescent blue lights Friday night at the Monroe Civic Center.
He rocked out the house, but there was a time he wasn't sure he could do it again after the deadly massacre at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas.

"It's just a senseless act that happened," Scott said.

He performed just hours before the attack.

"We were really fortunate to get out of there. We were on our way to the airport flying back to the airport that night," Scott said.

Hundreds of people were injured, and Scott knows some of those people came to see him.

"It's absolutely tough, you know. I went home and kissed my wife and called my family and friends to let them know I was okay," Scott said.

Music was the very thing that brought all those people together and Scott says it's what's going to keep them together, too.

"All music heals wounds, in my opinion. "You can't be fearful of it, you can't be fearful of it. You have to keep walking by faith and just keep moving forward," Scott said.

He said he doesn't forget about that night in Las Vegas, but when he's on this stage he has a job to do. He said that's to make sure everyone here has a good time.

"Matter of fact, we're going to block all that out. We're going to get up there and have a night of fun and keep moving forward," Scott said.

A night of fun and faith showed the power of music.
