Kacey Musgraves will also help those affected by the tornado. The "Space Cowboy" singer will donate the proceeds from an online closet sale of her stage clothes to Tennessee tornado relief. Musgraves partnered with Stage to Closet, which specializes in selling celebrity clothing.
The proceeds were originally set to go toward urban forest preservation. After the storm, the singer decided to use the money to benefit those affected by the tornado, explaining that "tornado relief efforts need help first."
Several more country artists are coming together for a sold-out benefit concert on Monday, March 9. Mitchell Tenpenny will host the concert at Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Roy in downtown Nashville.

All proceeds from the concert go toward charities affiliated with the volunteer organization Hands On Nashville.
