Jason Aldean's tour bus hit and killed a man on an Indiana highway early Monday morning.

"In all the years I've been touring and all the miles we've driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen," Aldean said. "I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same."
