Tim and Faith, Reba and Danny Gokey step up to help Nashville. Plus, Tonight's Tweets.

More artists stepping up to help flood victims in Nashville.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will be on CNN tonight with Anderson Cooper as he takes his show to Nashville. Watch tonight at 10pm ET

Reba McEntire, who is a member of the American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet, has donated $100,000 to the Nashville Area Red Cross. You can help by texting 90999 to make a $10 donation to Red Cross flood relief efforts.

Danny Gokey is using his foundation, Sophia's Heart, to help flood victims in Nashville. To make a $10 donation from your cell phone, text ONEHEART to 85944 and confirm by replying "yes." The charge will appear on your cell phone bill. Sophia's Heart is named for his wife who passed away a couple of years ago.

Melissa Peterman, who played "Barbara Jean" on Reba McEntire's sitcom, Reba, auctioned off her bedazzled George Strait T-shirt to benefit Nashville's flood victims. With matching donations from Reba, Melissa and a fan, the shirt raised $12,000 for the cause

And this is cool...if you planned on going to the CMA Festival this year not only will you be having a blast (and I will be jealous) but you will also be helping Nashville. The CMA is donating 50% of net proceeds from the 2010 CMA Music Festival to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee's flood relief efforts.

Tonight's Tweets:

@davidnail: Well, just got done hearing our house is way worse than thought, if only getting the water out was the bad news! Bad day!!!

@tobykeithmusic: Check out the new photos from Toby's USO Tour!

@Miranda_Lambert: Oops....forgot to tell my crew that moving an antique bar I bought across the street from the venue was part of thier job description.:) The things u do for love!

@TerriClarkMusic: Frustrating that people are stereotyped or generalized as" bigots" or "homophobic" due to the type of music they like.

@BradPaisley: Will be on @andersoncooper 360 tonight to help raise awareness about the flood disaster.

@BradPaisley: Taking stock of what all we've lost on the flood. By the way, would anyone who's ever caught a guitar pick at a show please return it. Just kidding by the way.

@ladyantebellum: I'm up EARLY and super excited for the next 3 shows in Florida with Tim McGraw!! Can't wait to see all of you! ~Hills

and SheDaisy talk about the damage to their home and how you can help.
