Add Kenny Chesney to the list of celebrities who've been affected by the severe Tennessee floods.

On Wednesday, the country star demonstrated just how serious the situation is by posting a photo on Twitter of himself nearly knee-deep in water. He can be seen clutching a white electric guitar while standing next to a small motorboat filled with several items, including a plastic storage box and a guitar case.

"Sending Anderson Cooper footage of my house under water," the singer, 42, Tweeted Wednesday, a few hours before he was scheduled to appear on CNN to discuss the damage.

"TN is a mess with floods," Chesney wrote on his Twitter page Sunday. "If you're fortunate enough to help out, hit up the mid-TN Red Cross. Stay safe, everyone."

The floods, which claimed the Grand Ole Opry House and damaged Soundcheck, a rehearsal space where Keith Urban and other artists store their gear, also inundated the home of Dierks Bentley. The singer Tweeted a photo of himself bailing out his flooded basement.
