Over the weekend, as the details of the tragic New Zealand mosque mass shootings started pouring in, so did the thoughts and prayers from country stars.
Keith Urban — who was born in New Zealand — and his wife Nicole Kidman, who was raised in nearby Australia have an especially close connection to the tragedy. “My family and I send prayers for ALL who’ve been affected by this indescribable hatred,” he posted on Twitter.

Heavy heart reading about the tragic events in Christchurch, NZ. Devastating. We need people with power and platforms preaching about love and acceptance and less division/fear.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

My heart is with New Zealand and those affected by what happened at the mosques. I had the pleasure of visiting in 2009 and was welcomed so beautifully. I can’t imagine the evil behind this act. Truly heartbreaking
