Each of the artists involved participated in the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas where sixty concertogers were brutally murdered as Jason Aldean kicked off the final set of the event in October 2017.

The 60th Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday, January 28 beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT on CBS.

The shooting in Las Vegas was the deadliest mass shooting in US modern history, but it also came in a year when 22 people were killed in a bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, in May.

Country music hitmakers Maren Morris, Eric Church and the Brothers Osborne are joining the performance lineup for the 60th Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy announced Thursday.

The "60TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS" will bring together 2018 GRAMMY nominees, EMI NASHVILLE's and COLUMBIA NASHVILLE's (), with past GRAMMY nominee, EMI NASHVILLE's, for a special segment paying tribute to victims of concert tragedies, including the ROUTE 91 HARVEST FESTIVAL shooting in LAS VEGAS last OCTOBER. "That being our last show of the year, I took it in differently than I have maybe taken in other shows".

"We get to write songs that are therapy for us", they shared at a media event previous year. "We wanted something that is universal", he explained. "We wanted something that spoke to the subject, which certainly this song does", he explained. "And then the best thing that you can have - above the money, above the awards, above anything - is if you could have that song that was therapy for you, and it relates to a listener".

This will be the first time the Grammy-nominated Brothers Osborne, who earned a nod for country duo/group performance for their song "It Ain't My Fault", will play at the Grammys.

Brothers Osborne, who released "While You Still Can" after the shooting, feel compelled to use their music to help people heal in the aftermath of tragedies.
