Kacey Musgraves partnered with resale Instagram account Stage to Closet to sell pieces from her personal and onstage wardrobe. The profits will be donated to tornado relief efforts, the singer shared.
"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," Musgraves wrote in the post next to a photo of a restaurant damaged from the tornado.
NHL player Nic Kerdiles, who's engaged to Chrisley Knows Best star Savannah Chrisley, created a GoFundMe to raise money.
