Playing Hillary Scott Loses ACMs Dress in Bus Fire But Not Bible: 'I Can't Talk About It Without Crying'

Lady Antebellum opened up to ET about their scary tour bus fire on Thursday, when a bus transporting Hillary Scott, her husband, and her tour manager caught fire while on their way to Dallas, Tex., for the Academy of Country Music Awards.

An emotional Hillary shared that among other personal items, the dress she was supposed to wear to Sunday's ACM Awards was actually lost in the fire.

"It actually was burned up and we got a replacement which is amazing, and I'm really excited about it," she told ET on Friday, looking on the bright side of things.

But one thing that miraculously didn't burn up was her Bible.

"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 said. "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."

Hillary also Instagrammed a picture of the Bible after the accident, writing, "My faith is forever deepened because of today."

Still, despite yesterday's stressful day, Hillary said she's currently feeling "great."

"I slept well," she said. "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."

And it definitely sounds like she got lucky.

"I was asleep in the back of the bus, evacuated as fast as I could," she recalled about the incident. "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."
