AceShowbiz – Singer Kacey Musgraves has pledged to donate all proceeds from an online closet sale to help those affected by Tuesday’s (March 03) deadly tornado in Nashville, Tennessee.
The “Rainbow” hitmaker has become the latest star to share her sadness at the devastation caused to the country music Mecca by the early morning twister, which has killed at least 22 people and caused damage to many of the city’s buildings.
Sharing side-by-side images of a Nashville restaurant structure before and after the natural disaster on her Instagram Story timeline, Kacey wrote, “Heartbroken for East Nashville. I lived on this side of town (in this neighborhood until recently) for years. Many friends are severely affected. Thankful to be ok and thinking of those who aren’t.”
Kacey Musgraves announces she will donate proceeds from closet sale to Nashville Tornado relief.
Her post emerged a day after she had announced plans to partner with clothing resale bosses at Stage to Closet to offload various pieces from both her personal and professional wardrobe, including designer items from Gucci, Miu Miu and Jimmy Choo.
At the time, Kacey had chosen the Tennessee urban forest preservation organization as the beneficiary of the sale, which launched on Tuesday, but now she has decided to use the money to help the people of her beloved Nashville.
On the same Instagram Story post, she explained, “(Proceeds of the closet sale I announced yesterday were going to go to TN forest preservation and while that is important to me, the Nashville tornado relief efforts need help first. The sale is still going on today and more things are being added if you want to help.)”
