Fisher asks for donations

Fisher called for assistance in the aftermath of the storm by asking for donations to be made to the Community Foundation of MidTN. Turning to his faith, the former athlete shared a verse from the Bible in the form of Psalm 46:1-2.

Fisher was one of the people who faced the tornadoes when they hit on Tuesday. At the time, the former athlete was alone with his and Underwood’s sons when the storm hit.


Underwood’s family took shelter

Underwood was out of town in New York on her “Find Your Path” book tour. The couple is parents to Isaiah, 5, and Jacob, 1, who had to take shelter with their father during the storm.

While appearing on the “Today” show on Tuesday to promote her book, Underwood opened up about how her family was affected by the tornado. The country singer revealed how her husband had to grab the boys at 2 a.m. from their room upstairs.

The trio then went down to a “safe room” downstairs. She noted how everyone was probably crying when that scenario played out.


The damage left by the storm

Underwood actually texted Fisher while on the show to find out if they were ok. Early on Tuesday morning, Nashville was hit by tornadoes that destroyed 140 buildings.

Lives were lost in the storm

According to reports, 24 people were killed in the storms. The storm hit a large stretch of downtown Nashville and destroyed businesses and homes.
