Many country music stars took to social media in the wake of this tragedy to let their fans know that they are safe. Fox News reported that Maren Morris, who is pregnant, revealed on Instagram that the Nashville tornadoes barely missed the block that she lives on.

“The tornado must have missed our block by an inch because we are alright but I am so depleted looking at the damage that has happened to our beautiful city,” said Morris, 29. “There are so many people in the streets helping already, though. Thinking of those who lost their loved ones + homes.”

Country music legend Dolly Parton wasted no time in getting on social media to send all of her love and support to the people of Tennessee.

“Well I’m here on the job today, because as they say, the show must go on, but we had a lot of damage out in our area,” Parton said in a video posted to her various social media accounts.
