Dierks Bentley was flying into Nashville last night right before the tornado that devastated the city touched down. Dierks described flying home around 11:30PM on Monday night, sharing video of a storm cell he says turned into a tornado.
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 was flying into John C. Tune Airport, on the city’s northwest side. Nashville ABC affiliate WKRN would later show overhead footage revealing the airport wasn’t spared from the tornado’s devastation.
