Country music's biggest names gathered on Sunday to celebrate the 53rd annual ACM Awards, but the event held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, definitely had a somber tone.
Las Vegas was also the location of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in October 2017, which claimed the lives of 58 country music fans after shots rang out from Mandalay Bay Hotel. Country music stars honored the memory of the victims and those injured during the shooting by wearing different pins on the blue carpet, which had the numbers 851, 58 and 1.
Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild explained the meaning behind the pin in a photo on her Instagram.
"Tonight I’m gonna wear these pins for the 851 injured, the 58 lost and the 1 life we can save in the future if we’re willing to start a conversation about things that need to be done for our children, our families and our fans," Karen wrote.
The pins were also spotted on fellow country music stars, Jason Aldean, Scotty McCreery, Thomas Rhett, Michael Ray, Russell Dickerson, Brett Young and many more.
