The Onsite Foundation provides funding and mental health resources for people who've experienced mass tragedies, trauma, stress and abuse. This includes first responders, veterans, refugees and anyone dealing with mental health issues.

Proceeds from this event will go to providing mental health resources to those who lost family members in the Route 91 shooting. The Onsite Foundation's team of trauma specialists will provide free services on the organization's Nashville campus.

The INSPIRE event will also honor Brian O'Connell, the President of Country Touring at Live Nation. O'Connell will be recognized for his ongoing efforts to help victims of the Route 91 shooting and their families.

Aldean, who was onstage when the gunman began shooting at the Route 91 festival on Oct. 1, 2017, has been outspoken about the need to provide continued support to Route 91 survivors and family members of victims.

In September, the singer took the stage at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas to honor Route 91 shooting victims and the first responders who arrived on the scene that day. Aldean brought Las Vegas firefighters, EMTs and police officers on the stage to celebrate their heroism.

In August, Aldean appeared on NBC's Today and talked about the Route 91 tragedy and how the events of that day still weigh heavily on him.

Route 91 is the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
