Tornadoes have ravaged much of the Midwest and South.  In fact Joplin, Missouri was hit today. Many folks have lost everything they owned and more.  Things you can replace family and friends you can not.  So to make things a little easier for victims Taylor Swift stepped up to raise money.Taylor is getting ready for her North American leg of her "Speak Now" tour which kicked off Saturday night in Nashville.  She was in rehearsals that were to be private.  However, Taylor noticed an opportunity to raise money for tornado victims by opening the rehearsal to the public charging $50 a person to view the show.  In the end she raised $750,000.

The North American Tour kicked off Saturday in Nashville and will will be in the Texas area in October.  She will be in Dallas, Lubbock, Austin, San Antonio and Houston.  For ticket info and dates you can check out her website for the details.

Taylor will debut her latest video for the song "The Story Of Us" on Tuesday at 7pm.  Here is a little teaser though to get you pumped up!!
