Country singer Jason Aldean returned to Las Vegas on Sunday in an unannounced trip to visit some of those injured in last week's mass shooting. "Feels surreal being back in Vegas today," his wife, Brittany, wrote on Instagram. "Visiting some of the strongest people we have ever met." Aldean, who was on stage when the shooting began, visited University Medical Center, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Photos have surfaced of his visit with patients, and the hospital thanked him on Facebook. The day before, Aldean made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to sing Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down." (More Jason Aldean stories.)
