Brad Paisley received a phone call from President Obama on Thursday (May 6) to discuss the extensive flood damage in Nashville, as well as the status of the Grand Ole Opry, which has been moved temporarily to the Ryman Auditorium due to water damage at the Grand Ole Opry House. Paisley spoke about the phone call during an interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 on Thursday night. Paisley said the President told him that FEMA was in place in Nashville, a message that Paisley relayed to the CNN audience. Paisley also gave an update on the Opry, saying, “It’s a show — not a place, and the show goes on.”
