The country is still reeling from Tuesday's engine failure and tragedy on Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 from NYC to Dallas that claimed the life of Jennifer Riordan, a bank executive from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Riordan — who became the first person to die in a commercial air incident in the United States since 2009 — was nearly sucked out of the Southwest Airlines plane when the left engine apparently failed, exploded, and sent shrapnel piercing through the window by her seat.

The Albuquerque native and mother of two was Vice President of Community Relations for Wells Fargo bank for nearly ten years, according to her LinkedIn account, but family, friends, and citizens in Albuquerque are remembering her for far more than her career.

In a statement released to the media, her family recalled Jennifer's "vibrancy, passion, and love" while memorializing her after the tragedy (below):

Apparently, Mason was contacted by the likes of Post Malone, whose set is on Saturday. Because that's the same day as Mason's performance in Nashville, it sounds like they will try to make something happen for the second weekend of festivities.

But if you're going to weekend one, you're in luck because Mason is rumored to be sharing the stage with other artists starting at 2:45 p.m. Friday with Whethan, an up-and-coming DJ.
