Since the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, the local music scene in Las Vegas has been working to put together a memorial and benefit album.  

11th Street Records owner, Ronald Corso, tells 13 Action News he was moved by the sense of unity after the shooting, and wanted to do something. 

"There's been a lot of us versus them," says Corso.  "In this particular instance, there was none of that.  It was just us." 

After the shooting, Corso had an idea.  He'd open up his recording studio, and invite local artists to record country music covers.

"It seemed like something that would reflect the spirit of the way people behaved after," says  Corso. 

In the next few weeks, Corso plans to put an album together.  Some of the proceeds will go to the victims, but he says he mainly wanted a way people could remember how Las Vegas came together in the days after the tragic shooting.  

"As least we can permanently and creatively reflect the lack of division in the days following the shooting," says Corso. 

Corso says he plans to announce the release date of the album on his Facebook page
