On the tragedy in Las Vegas:

JS: I am trying to live life to the fullest. Especially after seeing all this Las Vegas stuff going on. I have a bunch of friends out there and some of them were actually performing on stage when this was all going on. Me being a redneck from the south I am sure you would think I would be for all these guns but I’m not. I believe in the second amendment but I believe our forefathers didn’t really know about machine guns when they were writing that amendment. I think it kind of needs to be re-written because I don’t think a civilian needs to have automatic machine guns to protect themselves.

On the performers he knew that were performing during the tragedy:

JS: My friend John Rich was there and Cowboy Troy. Jason Aldean was there and we actually live in the same town. They were all out there. I actually had a couple buddies that were four doors down from where the shooter was at.
