Some of country music’s biggest stars have been sending their love and support to everyone affected by the deadly tornados that hit Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday.
Taylor Swift, who moved to Nashville when she was just 14 years old to launch her career, was just one of the many stars to take to social media…
“My heart is with everyone in Tennessee who has been affected by the tornados,” she wrote on her Instagram Story.
“Sending you my love and prayers.”
Miley Cyrus also shared her support, along with updates on shelters and ways in which people can help.
“Thinking about my home and family in Nashville and how fortunate I am that my place and loved ones have remained safe in these deadly tornados,” Miley Cyrus began.
“My heart is broken for my home state. So much loss and damage.
“We are #NashvilleStrong and will rebuild together! Follow @happyhippiefdn for updates on shelter and ways to get active! I am receiving information just as fast as everyone else at this point so stay tuned and we will share info as quickly as possible!”
Kacey Musgraves and Miley Cyrus’s godmother Dolly Parton were also among the famous faces to share their support on social media…
“Me and my fam are safe but many friends aren’t so lucky,” Kacey Musgraves said.
“We did live right in one of the worst hit spots a matter of months ago. It’s so crazy. I’m so nervous to find out who the fatalities are. Nashville is so tight knit. I’m gonna help in any way I can.”
Dolly Parton said that she was “praying for all those affected by the devastating storms in Tennessee and my heart is especially with the families who lost loved ones.
“We are all with you,” she added.
According to reports, over 20 people have died as a result of the tornadoes. Tens of thousands of people across the region have lost power, and most of the schools in and around Nashville have closed.
The New York Times writes that “at least 48 structures in the city had either partially or completely collapsed”, with more damage to be assessed in due course.
