"Not only do they take care of the folks who have the cancer, but they take care of the families, providing meals, providing comfort, providing counseling while a loved one is going through cancer," Wilson said.
K99.1FM's James Frye said he is honored to have Scott in the Miami Valley following Sunday's shooting.
"To me it’s an honor and it shows the resilience of country music, the fans, the artists, that they're ready to get back on the stage and they’re not going to let something like this keep them from continuing," Frye said.

Charlie Samaan, owner of JD Legends, said the entertainment complex has increased security for tonight's performance.
“I think people really need the music. They need the music in their lives to get away, so for everyone its going to be a great opportunity to be outside […] and get their minds away from everything," Samaan said.
Cancer survivor Angie Evans is at tonight's concert and said Scott’s performance is a way of moving on.
"It's probably very difficult for him to come out here but you have to go on and continue with your life. If you let something like this keep you from doing what you love then they win and you lose," Evans said.
"With me being a survivor, that’s what I do.”
