The "Music City Keep on Playin' – A Benefit for Flood Relief" telethon in Nashville raised more than $1.7 million with the city's country stars at the helm of the relief effort.
Brad Paisley and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, co-hosted the show and donated $100,000 themselves!
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman were also at the event working the phone lines. Keith says:
"This town has been good to us. We had our little girl Sunday Rose here, and we are going over there [to the call center] to do our part."
Brad, Keith, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Sheryl Crow and Martina McBride all played to a sold-out audience at the Ryman Auditorium, broadcast on the Great American Country network.
Proceeds went to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and you can still donate at http://gactv.com/help or texting "GAC" to 501501 will give $10 to the CFMT.
