High Valley's Brad Rempel performed at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas on Friday night. On Sunday, the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history happened in the exact same place.

Rempel joins Tom Power on the show today to discuss the tragic events that took place in the past 24 hours, how the events have affected him, and how his band must try to move on with "no fear" after this.
