Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery & More Country Stars Shares Updates & Prayers After Deadly Nashville Tornado

Tornadoes ripped across Tennessee in the early hours of March 3, including a direct hit in downtown Nashville around 12:40 a.m. Multiple deaths—at least 19 people have died in four counties (updated at 11:28 a.m.)—have been reported, as well as significant damage to hundreds of homes and buildings.

One of the hardest hit neighborhoods in Nashville was the historic Germantown area, which has a population of more than 2,700 people, including numerous industry execs, media members and country stars.

A number of country stars checked in via social media and other press outlets—including Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery, Kelsea Ballerini, Reba McEntire, Jake Owen, Maren Morris and more—to share updates and prayers.

Carrie Underwood via Today show: “[Mike] said he had to go upstairs at, like, 2 a.m. and grab the boys and take them down…we have like a little safe room in our house. I bet everybody was crying.”

Maren Morris via Twitter: “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. There are so many people in the streets helping already, though. Thinking of those who lost their loved ones + homes.”

Dierks Bentley via Twitter: “We ducked around this cell and landed at john tune airport around 11:30 last night. Glad we landed when we did. Wouldn’t have been good an hour later. It was the cell that turned into the tornado. Lot of people lost their homes. No one comes together as a city like Nashville does”
