Early this morning, CCM band Sidewalk Prophets faced every artist's worst fear when their trailer caught on fire while traveling from Texarkana to Amarillo on the opening weekend of their Something Different Tour. Though thankfully everyone made it out safely, there is still significant damage from the horrific event. "Praising the Lord that all of our band and crew are safe. lost almost 100K in priceless gear and merchandise. We're just 2 days in to our 45 city tour. The bus is safe and we're going to do everything in our power to make tonight's show in Amarillo happen. We love you all and thank you for your love and support," the band shared.

Along with that news came a chance for fans to come to the rescue and donate to a GoFundMe page set up to help the band get back all the equipment lost in the fire. Fans and fellow artists have shared the page often today as donations continue to pour in, with the current total raised at $45,595 of a $95,000 goal. Click here to donate to the page

"We are thanking God that our band family (band/crew) are all accounted for and safe.  This is one of the scariest moments in our 16 years as a band. We believe that there is a darkness that would desire to slow us down, shut us up, and fill us with fear and we are resolved to continue the work we've been called. We are committed to the cause of Christ and will do everything in our power to continue playing shows, writing songs, sharing unconditional love and hope across the country and world," the band wrote on the GoFundMe page. Lead singer Dave Frey sent out an update a few hours ago, thanking fans for the outpouring of love and support they've seen today. Click below to view the video.

Follow the band on Facebook for continued updates and keep the crew in your prayers as they recover from not just the physical loss, but also the emotional trauma of this event.
