NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Some of music's biggest stars are scrambling to replace thousands of pieces of gear after floodwaters in Nashville swamped a hub where dozens of big names stow their equipment.
Country music star Brad Paisley was just days away from starting rehearsals for his ironically titled H2O Tour. But now he must replace staging, instruments and much of his road setup after 5 to 8 feet of water flooded the area.
He vowed Wednesday that the show will go on, but he's got just two weeks until the tour kicks off May 21 in Virginia Beach, Va.
Keith Urban, Vince Gill, LeAnn Rimes and a host of others are waiting to see what remains of their possessions. No one is optimistic.
The storage area consists of three buildings located along the bloated Cumberland River.
