Just because you're rich, famous and (probably) have a whole closet just for cowboy hats doesn't shield you from flood waters, as many country stars have sadly learned this week in Nashville. Among the bigger names to make their troubles known are Dierks Bentley (pictured, left) and Kenny Chesney, who have been updating fans with photos from their homes.

Chesney's 40-acre waterfront property has been inundated with water and he made sure news networks could see the devastation, telling his Twitter followers on Wednesday, "Sending Anderson Cooper footage of my house under water for tonight. TN is a mess. You need to see it."
