Taylor Swift is giving $500,000 (£340,750) to the Nashville flood relief effort.

The US state of Tennessee was devastated by record storms over the weekend.

‘Nashville is my home and the reason why I get to do what I love,’ Taylor tells the Associated Press.

‘I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis.’

Taylor, 20, moved to Nashville when she was 14.
