She has already donated $500,000 to the relief effort, but tonight Taylor Swift will be joining artists like Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus, Miranda Lambert & Martina McBride for the Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery hosted by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill.

Swift caught up with MTV News to talk about how she's been affected by the floods. "The flood definitely affected all of Nashville. You know, for me, the fact that there were members of my band that lost their homes really affected me, because those are my friends," sheshared. "Those are the people I call up as soon as we get home. The fact that it affected my band, that's the most directly it affected me."

"Thankfully, my home wasn't damaged, but seeing people that I've known for years trying to figure out where they're going to stay, it was really painful to watch. Nashville is really being rebuilt, and everybody's been so wonderful."

The benefit will take place tonight at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Funds will go to the Community Foundation, which provides philanthropic services in Middle Tennessee.

We always love to see stars getting involved with charities. If you haven't already, be sure to check out Demi Lovato's "Cambio Cares" episode.
