Kenny Chesney's Home Flooded
According to his publicist, Kenny Chesney's home was flooded during the Nashville floods over the weekend. Kenny called CNN's Anderson Cooper on May 5 to describe the destruction that he faced as floodwaters rose as high as his first floor of his home, which is located just outside of Nashville.
"I've never seen anything like this in my life. There are a lot of people in our city really hurting. I was out of town when it happened. As I was flying home, I could see all of this from the air. I couldn't believe it. This has really had an effect on this town and state. It's been tough for people to deal with, including me," Kenny told Anderson. "I lost a lot, but not nearly as much as other people. Things I lost, I can replace, thank God. Some people have lost their lives and livelihood. We need the world's help right now."
Many Nashville residents don't believe that the national news media have given the Nashville flooding enough coverage. Anderson Cooper agreed, "I think they're right. We have not focused on this to the degree that we should have. That's no excuse. We're gonna go down to Nashville tomorrow."
Kenny's home is likely to be condemned, according to his publicist. To view Kenny's phone call to Anderson Cooper and see images of the damage, click here.
