During an appearance on “Today,” Underwood opened up about how her family was affected by the natural disaster. Mentioning husband Mike Fisher, she shared, “He said he had to go upstairs at like 2 a.m. and grab the boys and take them down to, we have a little safe room in our house.”

Other big names also had Nashville on their minds after the scary tornado. Dierks Bentley revealed that he nearly missed the tornado, tweeting, “We ducked around this cell and landed at John Tune Airport around 11:30 last night. Glad we landed when we did.
