A day after a deadly tornado wreaked havoc on Nashville, Chris Young announced last Wednesday that he would donate $50,000 to the Music City Inc. Foundation, towards Nashville Tornado relief.
“My heart goes out to everyone who lost friends or family last night. It’s devastating to see photos this morning of the city I call home,” Young wrote on Twitter, alongside a few photographs. “I don’t even recognize some of the locations it’s so bad… to help I’m donating $50,000 to the Music City Inc Foundation.

“NASHVILLE be safe!!!! Bad, bad tornadic weather. Call your friends and wake them up,” he wrote earlier as the storm hit the city.
The “Drowning” singer, who is Nashville-area native, grew up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He asked his fans and followers to do what they can to help.
The Music City Inc. Foundation is the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp’s (NCVC) charitable arm and a 501c(3).
According to reports last week, 25 people were confirmed dead and dozens were missing.
Maren Morris, Abby Anderson, Cassadee Pope and a few other country singers posted on social media about the impact of the tornado on their areas. Dierks Bentley‘s drummer Steve Misamore reportedly lost his home.
