The 'Saturday Night Live' Cold Open Pays Perfect Tribute to Both the Vegas Victims and Tom Petty

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.
