Taylor Swift already did a huge part by donating $500,000 to relief efforts after the Nashville flood first hit, but now she's doing even more. Tonight, June 22, Taylor will be taking part in Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery.
The flood's devastation hit close, as many of Taylor's band members lost their homes. "Thankfully, my home wasn't damaged, but seeing people that I've known for years trying to figure out where they're going to stay, it was really painful to watch," Taylor says. "Nashville is really being rebuilt, and everybody's been so wonderful."
Also joining Taylor in tonight's relief efforts are hosts Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, Brooks & Dunn, LeAnn Rimes, Miranda Lambert, and Martina McBride. Funds from the show will benefit The Community Foundation, a group providing philanthropic services to Middle Tennessee.
