Jason Aldean, who was the country music artist on stage when the massacre began this week in Las Vegas, pays tribute to not only the lives lost but Tom Petty — who died the day after the Vegas shooting — with a fantastic rendition of Petty’s incredibly appropriate “Won’t Back Down.” I don’t ever recall a musician giving the “Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night” after opening the show with a song, but if there was ever a time to do it, it is now.

Well done, SNL.
