Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift were among those who performed at Nashville Rising, a benefit concert to help victims of last month's flood.

Faith Hill opened the concert by saluting the city's residents, who have been praised for handling the disaster.

She said: "Nashville will rise and that is why we have come together tonight. Musicians, football players, coaches, our elected officials, you in the audience, yes, we are all the same. We're just neighbours who care and friends who want to make a difference."

Carrie Underwood kicked off the concert with her hit Undo It, then sang Jesus Take The Wheel - a song she said was very appropriate for the situation.

Other stars who performed at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena included Faith, her husband Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Lynyrd Skynrd, Amy Grant, Michael W Smith and ZZ Top. Organisers hoped to raise more than two million dollars for flood victims.
