On Thursday morning, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott shared a very scary photo… one of a tour bus she, her husband and tour manager were on that had gone up in flames. The group was on their way to Dallas for the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards and are incredibly thankful they made it off the bus in time.
The singer caught up with told ET Online today, and despite the scary ordeal, is doing very well. “I woke up very, very thankful for, you know, how everything went yesterday. It could’ve been a very different outcome and thankfully everyone was safe and sound, family’s good.”
“I was asleep in the back of the bus, evacuated as fast as I could,” she recalled. “Thankfully I was wearing decent pajamas and then it just erupted. It happened so fast. The first person to show up to the scene was actually the assistant fire chief of the county, which was a true miracle.”
Scott lost several of personal items, including her dress for Sunday’s ACM Awards, but it was what she didn’t lose that caught her attention. “Everything back there — my toiletries, my iPad, a lot of things including a lot of our clothes that we were supposed to wear this weekend — were ashes, disintegrated,” she explained. “And for whatever reason — I firmly believe that God is an amazing God — the Bible was intact and not a page was missing. I can’t really talk about it without crying.”
I just got this picture from the scene of the fire and HAD to share this. 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. 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. Yall, 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.

The singer has replaced her ACM dress, but this is sure to be an experience she won’t soon forget. We’re glad everyone is okay!
