Dierks Bentley’s longtime drummer, Steve Misamore, lost his home in the devastating Nashville tornado but his bandmates have shown up to give him a helping hand. The band posted a heartwarming video, with a touch of comedy that was much needed in a time like this.
In the clip, band members and friends arrive at Steve’s front door and knock waiting for him to answer. Tragically, the house is completely gone behind the front door (which is still standing) and the group turns it into a comedic moment.
The group piles in the front door, as Steve makes jokes about how the inside how has an “open” feel and it’s very natural now.
You have to see the video, it’s so great to see the band supporting their crew member and being able to be funny during such a terrible time.
The drummer lost his entire home when the tornado hit and shared the details over Instagram when he arrived at the scene with his wife.
“Hey everyone, Steve and CarryAnn here — as you can see behind us, yeah, we did take the direct hit,” he said in the video.
He continued, “We were in Vero Beach, Florida, starting a vacation, and got the call at about one in the morning from our neighbor that the tornado hit. We saw it on the news, flew back. As you can see, we’ve lost the top floor, or you could say decided to develop an open concept,” he said jokingly.
The drummer then turned the camera to show just how bad his neighborhood took the hit, and said how “overwhelmed” it was seeing the “total devastation everywhere.”
“After a couple of hours of crying…” Steve started before choking up and his wife CarryAnn said, “It’s just bricks and lumber, and nails, that’s all…And we’ll start new memories.”
The couple was able to joke a bit more by pointing out, “Maybe we’ll get a pool!” his wife said, with Steve adding, “Jacuzzi too, I don’t know.”
As we reported, the band is hosting a charity show at their Nashville bar to raise money for the community. The show is sold out, and they said in a statement, “We are now sold out on this show. It is incredible to see all the Nash support in the few hours we’ve made this show live. Please follow our page as we are working on some additional ways to raise funds for those who have suffered within our community.”
