Instead of it's usual comedic open tonight on SNL, the show went with a more somber approach. They brought out Jason Aldean, who was the man onstage during the Vegas shootings earlier in the week.
He also decided to not only honor the victims of the shooting, but also cover Tom Petty at the same time with "I Won't Back Down." Watch below.
