The Cumberland River rose to 52 feet and burst it's banks last weekend causing damage to The Opryland Area, and the Lower Broadway area downtown.
The Country Music Hall of Fame was affected, but thankfully, not the exhibits. The water rose to the third row ofseats within the Hall's Ford Theatre, but the complex has reopened this weekend.
The Opryland Hotel will be closed for months, and this weekend's Grand ole Opry will be held at it's old home, the Ryman.
The stadium that hosts the Tennessee Titans and next month's CMA Music Festival was badly flooded.
20 people died across the area, and many people were left homeless. The Red Cross have swung into action, and donations from Country stars include $50,000 from Taylor Swift and £100,000 from Reba McEntire.
