Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley Plan to Mark Opry Flooding With Benefit Concert


Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley will mark the first anniversary of the Nashville, Tennessee flood which swept through the fabled Grand Ole Opry by staging a benefit there on May 3.

Storms lashed the city a year ago and led to Opry bosses closing the doors to the venue and relocating equipment and historic artifacts.

Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley, who was one of the first stars to re-enter the flood-damaged venue to film the clean-up effort, will be joined by Luke Bryan and The Charlie Daniels Band for the anniversary concert, which will benefit area charities, including the Nashville branch of the American Red Cross.

Bentley says, "It's hard to believe that it's been a year since the flood. The city of Nashville, the Opry and the country music community were so resilient and came together to rebuild so quickly after the devastation. I've never been more proud to be an Opry member, and I'm looking forward to celebrating that sense of community again."
