STARSTRUCK/VALORY MUSIC CO. artist REBA McENTIRE braved sweltering temperatures and a nearby tornado while filming the video for her new single, “Turn On The Radio” last night (7/26) in NASHVILLE.
At one point in the afternoon, the heat index in NASHVILLE reportedly reached 108 degrees, and shortly after dinner REBA and the crew were rushed downstairs into the basement as a fast-moving electrical storm blew in, with lightning so intense that the shoot’s generator was promptly shut off for safety precautions.
A confirmed tornado touched down only a few miles from Downtown NASHVILLE and it was heading toward where the video shoot was taking place. Fortunately, the storm died down and passed without any damage at their location, allowing the video shoot to continue.
There were no reports of injuries in the MIDDLE TENNESSEE area, although the storm did knock down trees and brought down power lines around the area.
