Sandra Bullock is back in a big way. The gracious actress made another public appearance last night at the star-studded event Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery organized by her close friends Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. First the Oscar-winner taunted the audience with some guitar playing, which led to her introduction of Faith, who Sandra described as “an amazing woman, extraordinary woman, a disgustingly beautiful woman.”
“I’m going to bring the house down,” Bullock, 45, declared to the sell-out crowd of more than 15,000 people as she swung an acoustic guitar over her shoulder. “And I’m going to do it Nashville style!”
Her banter and tounge-in-cheek humor were well received by the audience.
“If I could have some quiet, please,” Sandra asked the audience as she slowly plucked the opening notes to “Smoke On the Water” on her guitar.”I can’t play for crap!” Sandra proclaimed leading into her introduction of Faith who quipped “Sign that girl right away,” as Sandra left the stage.
Faith and husband Tim (who played Sandra’s husband in The Blind Side) organized the star-studded event and were joined by leading country artists Toby Keith, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, ZZ Top. Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, LeAnn Rimes and Miley Cyrus.
Nashville’s leading lady Reese Witherspoon taped video greeting, and proclaimed in Nashville, “we get together and take care of each other.”
The benefit raised more than $2 million for flood victims.
