NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to tornado relief efforts in Middle Tennessee, where deadly storms ravaged counties this week, including in Nashville.

In an Instagram story made Thursday, Swift said "Nashville is my home and the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me. I've made a donation to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund."

She included a link to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund. At least two dozen people have died following the storms.

A spokesperson for the pop singer confirmed the donation.
