While he is originally from Paducah, Kentucky, country singer Justin Holmes calls Las Vegas home now. Following the attack at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1st that killed 59 people and left over 500 more injured, Holmes saw his adopted hometown come together in a way that is hard to put into words.

In the days following the shooting, stories of heroism and acts of selflessness began emerging, including all the people around the country praying for and donating to causes that will help the victims, all of which inspired Holmes to write a song about the spirit of Las Vegas.

"After the tragic events last Sunday out here in Las Vegas," Holmes said in a video. "That next day I started seeing all the love- and just the fellowship coming around the community in Las Vegas, and it really inspired me and compelled me to write this song- because I realized that, even with what happened, they couldn't break the spirit of Las Vegas and they couldn't break our family out here."

He began singing "Can't Break Us," a song about the strength, resilience, and the spirit of the people of Las Vegas. 

In the powerful chorus, he sings, "You can't break us/You can't keep us down for very long/You can't make us/Live in fear 'cause we're just too damn strong/So kick us when we're down and black and blue/One thing that holds true/Is you can't break us."

Comments flooded from fans, thanking Holmes for this incredible tribute, with some saying it even moved them to tears.
