The Country Music Association organizes a Music City vigil for Las Vegas

ABC NewsThe Country Music Association is hosting a candlelight vigil for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater Monday evening.

At least 58 concert-goers were killed and 500 were wounded as a shooter opened fire Sunday night on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, just as headliner Jason Aldean was delivering the event’s closing set. 

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry is set to speak at the Music City vigil, with as-yet-unannounced artists scheduled to sing as well.

The CMA has also postponed final ballots for this year’s CMA Awards in light of the shooting. Final voting was to begin on Monday, but now will take place Tuesday.
