The devastating floods in Nashville have inundated the Grand Ole Opry House, the most famous country-music venue in the world, and damaged cherished equipment of country artists across Music City.
Songwriter Aimee Mayo posted a photo to Twitter on Wednesday, sent to her by country star Kellie Pickler, showing the flooded main hall of the Opry, which sits five miles northeast of the entertainment district. Many instruments, costumes, audio tapes and other historic paraphernalia are feared lost or damaged at the site. However, Opry performances have been moved to other Nashville venues.
Other facilities are also swamped, including Soundcheck, a rehearsal space on the Cumberland River where Keith Urban and many other artists keep their gear. "I've probably lost all of my road equipment, and all my guitars, and amp and everything," Urban tells CNN.

Some musicians write songs about their family. Michelle Branch likes to bake with hers.
"Once I had my daughter, Owen, I enjoyed baking that much more," Branch, 26, tells PEOPLE. "It's such a mother-daughter thing to do. It all comes down to being with family and doing something for your family. I think that's why we get an urge to bake at the holidays. We all get an urge to be close and spend time with each other over a cup of coffee and a piece of pie."
Branch, who's readying her third solo album, Everything Comes and Goes, for release next year, says she has always had a passion for baking – and it's something she shared with her 4-year-old from an early age.

"I love crumb-topping pies," Branch says of the dish. "So I just saw the recipe and tried it one year and from then on it just became the staple holiday pie."
Just how much does the singer adore it?
"I was thinking of tattooing the crust recipe on my arm," she says, laughing. The final product is a combination of a Gourmet crust recipe and a filling from New York's Buttercup Bake Shop. "You can't go wrong with apple pie," Branch says. "If you eat it for breakfast with ice cream, you've got fruit and dairy for the day!"

PARIS DISCONNECT: So much for those unlisted star numbers. Earlier this week, hackers cracked Paris Hilton's cell phone directory and posted the numbers of the rich and famous roster on the Internet. Within hours celebs including Victoria Gotti, Lindsay Lohan, and Ashlee Simpson were deluged with calls. More than 500 numbers and personal notes from Hilton's Sidekick II personal device hit the Web, and the thieves also reportedly accessed some revealing pictures of the Simple Life star. Hilton apologized for the incident, declaring she felt "horrible" about the invasion her friends had to endure.
