Music City Ravaged by Historic Floods

Fender would like to offer its support to everyone in “Music City” – Nashville, Tenn. – ravaged this week by storms and flash floods that have left an estimated $1 billion in damages in their wake. The death toll stood at 31 in Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky as today, with a handful of people listed as missing.

The flooding, caused by more than 15 inches of rain in only two days, eventually flowed back into the Cumberland River, but not before rushing into some of Nashville’s most treasured musical landmarks. The Grand Ole Opry House and the Country Music Hall of Fame both took on water, and 160,000-square-foot music equipment storage facility Soundcheck was completely inundated.

Country superstar Keith Urban discussed the flooding in this interview with CNN.

Kenny Chesney also made a plea for help…
