Country Artists Share Support & Prayers For Nashville After Tornado

In the early morning hours of Tuesday (March 3), a strong storm tore through Nashville and middle Tennessee. The storm created a tornado, which left endless destruction in its wake and resulted in the deaths of at least 24 people.

Dozens of structures were destroyed, including beloved businesses such as The Basement East. Others lost their homes, like Dierks Bentley‘s drummer, Steve Misamore.

Bentley himself flew through the storm that produced the tornado, writing on Instagram that he landed just in the nick of time.

Glad we landed when we did,” Bentley said. “Wouldn’t have been so good an hour later.”

Bentley was one of many country artists who took to social media to show support for Music City after the tornado. We have complied a list of some of their reactions below.

In the list, you’ll also find some posts from people connected to the industry, such as artists’ spouses and radio hosts. We have also included some posts from iconic Nashville landmarks, such as the Ryman.

Many of the artists referenced ways you can help those impacted by the tornado. Look through their posts if you’d like to learn about the many ways you can help with the relief.

You’ll find that most are directing people to donate to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s emergency relief fund. You can donate to that fund by clicking here.
