As the rest of the country is finally finding out how bad the Louisiana floods have been, many people are jumping at the chance to help. Nashville took early notice however, and now Garth Brooks has spoken out publicly urging people to help us.

Brooks used his Facebook Live show "Inside Studio G: A Monday Night Conversation" to spotlight the seriousness of South Louisiana's current situation. He gives out a few ways people can donate and help.

In the video, Brooks says “I got to tell you, with the Olympics and the presidential race that’s going on, I think that Louisiana right now may be getting lost. This thing is really, really a bad situation. … All our hearts go out to Louisiana.”

Thanks Garth. We can use all the help we can get right now, and you bringing the message to your massive audience is definitely going to help. You are very much appreciated.
