We ducked around this cell and landed at john tune airport around 11:30 last night. Glad we landed when we did. Wouldn't have been good an hour later. It was the cell that turned into the tornado. Lot of people lost their homes. No one comes together as a city like Nashville does pic.twitter.com/qvCjrYNu0x— Dierks Bentley (@DierksBentley) March 3, 2020
