GARLAND, TX - A tour bus for superstar country group Lady Antebellum has caught fire along an interstate near Dallas, but 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 morning.

Scott says everyone safely evacuated, writing "EVERYONE IS SAFE AND SOUND." She signed the post "hillary."

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

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.
