CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN talked with CNN’s RICK SANCHEZ YESTERDAY (5/4) about the flooding in NASHVILLE and how it has affected the NASHVILLE music community. KEITH has been unable to get to his trucks of equipment, including all his guitars and amps, as the SOUNDCHECK storage facility in NASHVILLE in flooded.
KEITH said: "There is a storage place here in NASHVILLE called SOUNDCHECK where a lot of musicians like VINCE GILL, BRAD PAISLEY and LITTLE BIG TOWN have all their equipment stored there. We didn't know that it would flood like it did; we just know that it's not good ...This pales in comparison to the people who have lost everything, their homes.”
"NASHVILLE is such a great community and that community spirit has never been more evident than it is right now. All of the radio stations down here playing virtually no music. It's all pledge drives that are happening right now. I know that the RED CROSS facilities are maxed out, but there are so many people offering their support, offering to take people in and that sort of thing, so everybody's their little bit and I'm sure there's going to be benefit concerts to help people as well. My wife (NICOLE KIDMAN) and I are helping financially as well right now,” he added.
