Nashville’s local channel 4 WSMV is hosting a Flood Relief Telethon hosted by Vince Gill. Call toll free at 877-345-1522 or 615-738-2913 to donate.
Expected to appear are country stars such as Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, Naomi Judd, Amy Grant, Lorrie Morgan, Darius Rucker, Phil Vassar, Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry, Steve Wariner, Buddy Jewell, Lonestar, Bo Bice, Lee Roy Parnell, Bryan White, Julie Roberts, Chuck Wicks, Jimmy Olander, Steven Curtis Chapman, Brandon Heath and Billy Dean.
The Fearless One appeared in an interview from Des Moines, Iowa which was her last stop in her Tour. After that appearance, the host announced Taylor Swift was donating $500,000 dollars to the flood relief efforts, as reported by the Associated Press. Here’s the article via Forbes.com.
“Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city and the people I love so dearly,” Taylor said in an e-mail to the Associated Press. “Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love. I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis.”
The projected figure for the entire cleanup effort is in the vicinity of $1 billion dollars. Waters have receded, meaning the real work is just beginning.
