Kacey Musgraves is giving back to her local community after parts of Nashville were damaged by a tornado on Tuesday. The New York Times reports that 25 people died on March 3 when four counties in the state were hit by the adverse weather conditions. East Nashville, where Musgraves once resided, was among the areas affected and the Grammy winner announced that proceeds from a sale of her stage outfits will now go to locals in need of financial aid.

Musgraves originally partnered with Stage to Closet to raise money for Tennessee urban forest preservation. However, speaking via Instagram, she confirmed that plan has now changed as the “tornado relief efforts need help first.”

Prior to her fundraising effort Musgraves had assured fans she was safe. "Me and my fam are safe but many friends aren’t so lucky," she wrote. "We did live right in one of the worst hit spots a matter of months ago. It’s so crazy. I’m so nervous to find out who the fatalities are. Nashville is so tight knit. I’m gonna help in any way I can."

Musgraves ended 2019 by releasing a Christmas album and accompanying Amazon Prime special. She also performed at a controversial music festival organized by the online retail giant. Musgraves' most recent studio album, Golden Hour, dropped in 2018.
