EDINBURG, Ill. (WCIA) — Officials in Christian County are increasing their security presence in response to last weekend’s Las Vegas shootings ahead of this Friday night’s upcoming country concert at the Ayers family farm.
Country music star Luke Bryan is scheduled to headline the event which opens to the public at 5:00pm. Event organizers expect up to twenty thousand people in attendance. More than half of the tickets are already sold out.
In a statement responding to the massacre at an open air country concert in Las Vegas, Bryan’s band wrote, “Country music has always been about community, and we will continue to stand together.”
