Sandra Bullock’s surprise country music performance

Sandra Bullock made a surprise appearance at Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery, at the request of hosts Tim McGraw, who played Bullock’s husband in The Blind Side, and his real-life wife, Faith Hill. Not known for her musical prowess, Bullock declared, “I’m going to bring the house down. And I’m going to do it Nashville style!” The crowd cheered loudly, then broke into laughter when she joked: “Could I have some quiet, please?” She then slowly counted, “5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and!” Slowly picking out the opening notes to “Smoke On the Water,” she received wild cheers before stopping and declaring, “Okay, who am I kidding, I can’t play for crap.” Bullock then introduced Hill, calling her “disgustingly beautiful,” and gave her a hug before walking offstage as the crowd stood and screamed their approval. The benefit raised more than $2 million for flood victims.

    Would be great to be able to hear what was being said .For some reason young groupies love to scream and squeal while a performer is onstage. Why can`t they wait and applaud after the artist has performed. Duct Tape should be used on these teen “screamers” Grow up enough to let the artist perform and THEN…applaud and cheer(screaming not necessary)

    Sandra is a piece of crap ever since she adopted that blakc baby. I wish her the worst life has to offer.

    To Markus. Your comments and thoughts are incomplete, not to mention, your spelling of the word blakc (not a word). Why would you wish anyone an awful life for adopting a ‘blakc baby’ or any baby for that matter? Such incomplete comments must be coming from a very small undeveloped mind. Try to open your mind you might find some goodness rather then the hate you seem to be expressing.

    My sympathies, Markus. People like you are never happy inside and they don’t make the people around them very happy either. It must be hard to have that kind of hate inside.
