Kenny Chesney and Other Country Stars Cope with Nashville Flood Damage

The residents -- including top country-music stars -- of Nashville are struggling to cope with the damage caused in their beloved city as a result of catastrophic flooding this week.

Now, country star Kenny Chesney Twittered a photo of himself on the steps of his home, which was halfway submerged in muddy water. Chesney, 42, posted that he was "sending Anderson Cooper footage of my house under water." 

Other musicians who are dealing with the aftermath of the deadly floods include Keith Urban, who told CNN, "I've probably lost all of my road equipment, and all my guitars, and amp and everything," and Michelle Branch, who Twittered: "What was left of my indie album Broken Bracelet (6k) is all submerged under water along with my vintage pink sparkle Wurlitzer."

And shock spread through the entire music industry when the legendary Grand Ole Opry was flooded. People published a dramatic photo of the revered, waterlogged venue -- which housed instruments, costumes, audio tapes and other historic memorabilia all at risk being damaged or lost. Since the floods arrived in Nashville, shows scheduled at the Grand Ole Opry have been moved to other venues in Tennessee.
