Nashville may be over 1,000 miles away, but it’s so close to home. Many of our talented singer/songwriters who grew up in New England have made the move to Music City.
Our beloved country stars, who call Nashville home, have shared their experiences on social media. Many of them have reached out to their fans sharing sites to help others in need, following the devastating Tornado that has temporarily burned out the bright light that is Nashville.
Yesterday, I heard that one of my Local Catch artists, Krista Angelucci, originally from Billerica, had experienced a direct hit from the tornado, and lost her home. Krista has been in Nashville for a few years now living out her dream. But Tuesday night the dream became a nightmare. She recalls that night in detail. How she and her fiance sought safety in their shower, and waited out those horrifying moments. She shares how her father, back here in New England, had actually dreamed that night that he was in a tornado with Krista.
It’s a chilling account of what it’s like to be in the eye of the storm… or the middle of a tornado.
Take a listen to our conversation.
To help with the Nashville Tornado relief, there is a Go Fund Me page set up, and you can click HERE!
Krista’s friends have also set up a page, HERE.
Here are some pictures Krista took of her apartment building
