Miranda Lambert on Extreme Makeover, Brad talks Water, Tim and Faith on CNN and Tonight's Tweets

Miranda Lambert will be on this Sunday's episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition. She says she's not a crier, but this show will get her going. This Sunday's episode is set to help a family whose son has Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. I'll be crying right along with Miranda since my nephew, Isaac, has PWS. I'm very excited though to see this episode spread more awareness for this disorder.

Brad Paisley's H2O Tour is underwater, another victim of the Nashville flood. With just two weeks before the start of the tour right here in Va Beach all of his staging, props, amps and most of his guitars were destroyed in the flooding. Brad tells the Associated Press, "I sent a Tweet the other day that basically told people that when they come to the show just know that what you're seeing has been fully tested under water. You're talking about total cred. This is the H2O Tour. This isn't posers acting like we know about it. We've done it, buddy." He tweeted a pic tonight along with this message: @BradPaisley: Back of my effects-rack. Not what I mean when I say "dirty guitar tone" usually. http://twitpic.com/1lv22z

Brad is one of about 1,000 musicians who had gear at Soundcheck Nashville. Vince Gill is reportedly one of the musicians who suffered the greatest losses with most of his guitar collection, including one-of-a-kind vintage instruments, believed to have been destroyed in the flood.

CNN's Anderson Cooper was in Nashville last night talking to Brad along with Tim and Faith- here's the video:
