Both will be held in the gymnasium of Big Sandy High School.

Melton’s body arrived at Nashville International Airport on Saturday afternoon.

The 29-year-old and his wife, Heather, were attending the Route 91 Festival when a  gunman began firing from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel.

"I lost my true love and knight in shining armor," Heather wrote on Facebook.
