Sandra Bullock Serenades Nashville
"I'm going to bring the house down. And I'm going to do it Nashville style!" Sandra Bullock told the audience at the "Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery."
The Oscar®-winning actress picked up a guitar at the concert and gave a tongue-in-cheek performance of the opening notes to the classic "Smoke on the Water."
The crowd of 15,000 gave her a standing ovation, an echo of the one she got at the June 6th MTV Movie Awards, where she made her long-awaited return to the national spotlight after husband Jesse James's sex scandal broke.
"Sign that girl right away!" said singer Faith Hill after Bullock's performance.
The all-star concert was hosted by Hill and her husband Tim McGraw and featured superstars Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.
The benefit raised more than $2 million, but it was Bullock who stole the show.
