The tour bus carrying Hillary Scott, one of the vocalists for country superstars Lady Antebellum, caught fire in Garland, Texas on Thursday, April 16th while she was en route from Nashville to Dallas for the group’s appearance on the American Country Music Awards April 19th.
All of the passengers on the bus, including Scott, her husband, tour manager and driver, evacuated and escaped injury. The driver reportedly pulled the bus to the side of Interstate 30 after a tire blew, and then noticed the fire. Flames soon engulfed the rear of the bus, totaling it.
Scott posted an inspirational note on Instagram following the incident, explaining that it reinforced her faith in The Almighty. “Today, when our bus caught on fire we had quite a few personal belongings in the back (where I was asleep before evacuating the bus), one of them being my Bible,” she wrote. “I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible. The outside cover was burned and messed up but NOT ONE PAGE was missing. Y’all, God’s Word will always stand. He is FOR YOU, WILL PROTECT YOU, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER FADE. My faith is forever deepened because of today. I hope this story deepens yours.”
