Country music singer Kenny Chesney is one of thousands in Nashville sifting through waterlogged memories after floodwaters consumed his home this week.
His publicist, Holly Gleason, says it’s likely his house will be condemned after water rose past the first floor.
Chesney’s gym is ruined. He also lost all of his sports memorabilia, including items from when he was in high school as well as professional sports items and pictures with friends who are athletes.
Chesney was in another state working on a project when the flooding happened over the weekend. Cleanup is under way and people are working to assess the damage.
Kenny Chesney did a phone interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night that included video Chesney had had shot of his flooded property in Nashville.
While the Knoxville native's Music City property has been damaged, Chesney said many others in Nashville are suffering far more than he is and urged people to help those in need.
Cooper told Chesney he planned to do his television show from Nashville Thursday night.
