Seriously scary news for Lady Antebellum! The country group’s tour bus caught on fire Thursday morning (April 16) while en route to the American Country Music Awards, lead singer Hillary Scott shared on Instagram.

“Hey guys, we had a crazy morning on the way to Dallas today. Our bus tire caught on fire and we had to evacuate very quickly,” the country star captioned a photo of the burned bus. “EVERYONE IS SAFE AND SOUND. It was me, my husband, our tour manager, and driver. Thanking God for our safety and the safety of all of those who helped put this fire out and keep us safe. Love you all!!!!”

According to NBC Dallas/Fort Worth, Hillary Scott and her team were traveling from Nashville to Dallas on I-30 for the ACMs this weekend (the show is on Sunday, April 19). The site reports that Hillary’s publicist Mary Hilliard noted that the tour bus is not the singer’s usual bus.

Lady A, who are up for Vocal Group of the Year at the ACMs, are also slated to perform at the country music awards show on Sunday.

ABC News notes that Hillary Scott’s young daughter, Eisele, was not on the bus, and Hillary’s fellow band members, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, were traveling separately.

While the incident looks downright terrifying (it’s not hard to tell that the tour bus looks crazy charred from Hillary Scott’s Instagram photo), we’re so glad that everyone is okay.
