"I went to my old school [Donelson Christian] today to see the damage firsthand from Monday night's tornado," Scott shared on social media, along with a series of heartbreaking photos. "I am at a loss for words. There is so much to be done and it is unbelievably overwhelming. As I get more and more information I will keep y'all posted on how and where to give to help. This place is so special. The DCA family love people so well and with the help of our community and giving hearts they will rise from this."

The tornado, which struck Nashville in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 3, claimed at least 25 lives, with many more injured, and numerous homes and buildings destroyed. The country music community is already rallying to help, with artists like Chris Young, Dan + Shay and Taylor Swift, among others, pledging large amounts of money to go towards recovery efforts.

In addition, a telethon was held within days of the devastation, raising more than $385,000, with Scott's bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood joining stars like Cassadee Pope, Jake Owen, Kid Rock and more in helping raise money.

Lady Antebellum just dropped Live: In the Round, sharing new acoustic versions of five of the songs from their just-released Ocean record.


"We really enjoyed getting to strip down some of our favorites songs from Ocean and put focus on the lyrics that drew us in from the beginning," Kelley said in a statement. "It was refreshing to get back in the studio with just the three of us and our road band. We were able to relive those initial feelings and reflect on how these songs have already made such a huge impact on our career."
