Tennessee Flood: Millions Pour In For Relief

Amy Grant, Keith Urban, Alison Krauss and others appeared on a Nashville-based telethon to raise money for those who lost nearly everything in the Tennessee floods of last week.

From Country Weekly:

Proceeds from the telethon will go to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank, the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

Thousands of Middle Tennessee families were left with no homes, food, or possessions after weekend flooding of historic proportions. Several Nashville landmarks, including the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the Opryland Hotel, the Wildhorse Saloon and the Opry Mills Mall were affected by the flooding of the nearby Cumberland River.

NBC Nightly News profiled the telethon for their Making A Difference segment.
