Taylor Swift Leads Celebrity Prayers for Nashville

by at . Comments

With dozens dead and countless houses covered by water, Taylor Swift and other celebrities are sending their thoughts and prayer to Nashville this week.

The city has been ravaged by floods and record-breaking, torrential rain storms.

At Sunday night's MET Costume Institute Gala in New York, Taylor sent out well wishes to those in her hometown: "Right now Nashville is under water. We had the worst storm in 35 years, so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. A lot of people back home are not doing well."

So Influential

Taylor isn't alone in this sentiment. Tweeted Brad Paisley:

"I think all my road guitar gear, amps, effects are under 3 ft of river... Just saw two girrafes, two elephants, and two rhinos walking down the road toward a HUGE wooden boat. Thinking about followiing them."

Added Julianne Hough: "Hey guys! Please keep the families and everyone else in Nashville in your thoughts and prayers... They really need it right now! Thanks."

Meanwhile, a Nashville music executive says there may be a fundraiser in honor of the legendary Grand Ole Opry House and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, both of which have been ruined by water damage.

Below, Swift poses at last night's Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala in NYC:

Oh god, not her again! Why MUST you insist to put her as a LEAD? Why not all the OTHER country singers who not only prayed but also stopped their tours to HELP OUT. Prayers and well wishers are nothing if you don't do something to help out. That girl may not me a publicity whore, but you THG is definitely making her to be!!! BTW, she is not all that great either.
