On Thursday, Taylor Swift announced that she'd donated $1 million to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to help finance relief and recovery efforts in the wake of this week's deadly tornadoes in the Nashville area. “Nashville is my home," Swift wrote on Instagram Thursday. "And the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me." As The Tennesseean notes, the "longtime Nashville resident" also donated $500,000 to relief efforts following the devastating Music City flood of 2010.
