In 1996, country crooner Garth Brooks released his emotional ballad "The Change" in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing that took the lives of hundreds of people.

This week, following the horrific shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas, Brooks once again picked up his guitar to perform a short rendition of the same song on Facebook Live.

The singer also had a powerful message, and some words of wisdom to convey to those affected by the senseless tragedy, the first responders, and his fellow musicians.

Sitting in front of a TV screen that read "Pray for Las Vegas," the country singer praised those affected by the deadliest mass killing in the history of the U.S. for their display of courage and love despite seeing a "lot of bad things."

"I'm very proud of how the audience handled itself. People were laying down on people to protect them," Brooks said. "Just...character flows through country music. All our love to the victims and the victims' families. All our love to the bands and crews."

"Can't thank the men and women in blue enough," he continued. "Can't thank the firefighters, EMTs, hospital staff, SWAT teams, everybody...and the volunteers."

But it was what he said in the rest of the video that struck a chord with people across the country as well as Brooks's fellow artists.
