The Associated Press

GARLAND, Texas (AP) A tour bus for superstar country group Lady Antebellum has caught fire along an interstate near Dallas, though no one was injured.

Singer Hillary Scott posted on the group's Facebook page that she, her husband, their tour manager and the driver were on the Dallas-bound bus when a tire caught fire Thursday.

Photos show the back of the bus badly burned. Scott says everyone evacuated, writing "EVERYONE IS SAFE AND SOUND."

Garland police say the driver stopped the bus after the tire blew on Interstate 30 east of Dallas, and the vehicle caught fire. Police confirm nobody was hurt.

Lady Antebellum is nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at Sundays 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The show is being held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, near Dallas.
