Jake Owen was performing on the same stage where gunshots rang out at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas just a mere set before it all happened. Still in Vegas, he called in to the Bobby Bones Show this morning to document the tragic occurrence and has now given fans a visual perspective of where exactly he was.
Shared to his Instagram story, Jake says "I'm still sitting on the bus after what was the most horrific thing I've ever experienced in my life last night," before flipping the camera to show just how close he and his crew were to Mandalay Bay. The stage is in direct view from his window and he points out the fences that they had to climb to find safety in their tour bus.
Watch the extracted clips in the video above.
