The biggest flood the city has ever seen has devastated Nashville, Tennessee and surrounding areas. While national news coverage has been focusing on the New York City Times Square bomb, Music City and all three of its local stations have been broadcasting non-stop coverage of the worst flood ever in Middle Tennessee. Roads and interstates were closed because of the storm that moved through the Nashville area, producing more than 15 inches of rain in some areas. This, of course, has affected famous residents as well as every one else who calls Music City home. Many stars are taking to Twitter and Facebook to share their stories, thoughts and prayers with their neighbors.Here is what the stars have been saying:-- Brad Paisley joked, "Two giraffes, two elephants and two rhinos walking down the street toward a HUGE boat. Thinking about following them."-- Tim McGraw and Faith Hill send this message: "We are very concerned for our town, but are also extremely proud of the selflessness and generosity shown by our wonderful citizens. We truly live in a special community."-- Dierks Bentley, who had to cancel two shows, posted a photo of himself with a bucket bailing water out of his basement, saying, "Hate to cancel shows ... might be a first, but Nashville is a disaster. All of our houses are messed up."-- Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts shared: "Everyone please pray for Nashville. The flooding is horrible, and the rain is still coming.-- Little Big Town: "So much flooding here ... so many friends having trouble. Praying for everyone's safety."-- Reba McEntire: "Lots of prayers are going up for everyone affected by the weather. I've never seen this much rain and water!!!"-- Jo Dee Messina, who was trying to get back to Nashville from Chicago on Sunday, tweeted, "Landed to a flooded Nashville. [Bandmember] Robby's wife just got pulled from her car in water. Their car is gone, [but] she is safe. Thank God. Trying to get home."-- James Otto: "I'm worried about my city! I wonder what will be gone when I get back? I left two days ago, and it seemed not a worry in sight. Pray for Nashville!"-- Dolly Parton tweeted, "Thoughts and prayer go out to all affected by the flooding in Nashville and surrounding areas."-- Michelle Branch, who is currently in Los Angeles, has seen photos of her Nashville neighborhood and tweeted, "I'm seriously thinking my car might be washed away. So scary!"Many stars like Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum asked folks to donate to the Red Cross. As of yesterday, water had flooded the lower area of downtown Nashville and was also inching toward the Country Music Hall of Fame. The Opryland Hotel had to evacuate guests due to flooding and The Opry House has also suffered damage. Tonight's Opry performance will take place at Nashville's War Memorial Auditorium and weekend performances will move to the historic Ryman Auditorium downtown.
